Building a Safe Space for Security Research

First Videos From 44CON 2018 Up

For a long time we used to sell access to videos on Vimeo. Recently we moved back to making videos freely available on YouTube. Due to some last minute issues with 2018 we had to do a bit more work to get the 2018 videos to a point we were happy with. However, in 2019 the wonderful Ministraitor will be supporting our videos, and we’ll be able to provide them for free from now on. The first 5 videos from 2018’s 44CON are now ready to go, so read on for the vids and our thoughts. Continue reading “First Videos From 44CON 2018 Up”
