This is a guest post by one of our trainers, Paul Schwarzenberger. Paul is running the fantastic Cloud Security and DevSecOps training course this June. He also has a blog where he talks about AWS, Cloud Security and DevSecOps. This is part of a series on how he’s built a platform to make things easier for those attending his training.

My 44CON Cloud Security and DevSecOps training course this June includes AWS, Azure and GitHub accounts which the students use so they don’t need to create their own. As I described in Part 1, I also decided to build a training platform, so that students can connect to a virtual desktop in the cloud with all the software they need pre-installed.
That way they can come on to the course with any laptop or even tablet which supports the Amazon WorkSpaces client.
I built the supporting infrastructure in AWS using Terraform – a great tool for infrastructure as code – see Part 2 for more details and screenshots. Continue reading “Building a cloud security training platform – Pt 3: Automated User Setup”
We’ve added another 4 videos from 44CON 2018 to 44CON TV. Our older conf talk videos are also moving over to the channel. If you want them in your YouTube stream, don’t forget to subscribe to 44CON TV and click the bell. Once all the videos are up, we’ll start work on other ways to access our content. Lets see what’s new! Continue reading “4 New 44CON 2018 Videos”
Tickets for September training courses are now on sale in the shop. There are 9 courses to choose from so we thought we’d give you a quick run down in one place. Don’t forget we still have seats available for our June 6th/7th courses.
We’ll run a 44CONnect event on the evening of the 10th of September, to which all training attendees are invited. Training delegates also receive a substantial discount on conference tickets. Continue reading “September 2019 Training: What To Expect”

We’re also starting to move our older conf talk videos over to the YouTube channel, so if you’d like them to show up in your stream, don’t forget to subscribe to the 44CONtv channel and click the bell to get notifications as new videos go up. From now on, all of our videos will be up on YouTube as soon as the 1s and 0s can carry them. Continue reading “More 2018 44CON Videos Added”
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”

Part 1 – Proof of Concept
The Cloud Security and DevSecOps training course I’m delivering for 44CON in June includes AWS, Azure and GitHub accounts which the students use so they don’t need to create their own.
Wouldn’t it be great if students could turn up with any laptop, or even an iPad, and do the course. And the time spent on the labs would be used to learn about cloud security and DevSecOps, not debugging software installation issues.

It seems like it was only two weeks ago when we announced the early bird tickets, but sadly all 50 have been snapped up. Still, being the great folks we are, we wanted to show you 5 different ways to hack the 44CON ticket pricing model because, well, basically we’re good guys like that. After all, we taught you how to game the 44CON CFP and that worked well. In the words of every security researcher everywhere, “What could possibly go wrong?” Continue reading “Hacking 44CON’s Pricing Model (5 Different Ways)”
The Call For Papers for 44CON 2019 is now open. Submissions will be gratefully received on our CFP System. We’re interested in receiving submissions for workshops and talks. Continue reading “44CON 2019 CFP Now Open”
Our 2019 Early bird tickets are now on sale. There are 50 early bird tickets available until March 11th. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. As usual, the early-bird prices still start at £299 inc. VAT, but there are also accommodation and t-shirt options available.
We’re trialling a small selection of cheap expo tickets providing limited event access with certain groups, and there will be pre-registered free evening event tickets. Early bird tickets are the cheapest fully catered, full access tickets you can get. If you want to see the talks, you want one of these.
As well as full access to 44CON, Early bird ticket holders can also ask for an invite to our 44CONnect event in London on the 13th of March. This invite-only event will take place the day before CRESTCon, and will feature talks from some of the trainers taking part in our quarterly training programme. Please make sure you mention 44CONnect on your booking, or contact us after booking if you’d like to come.
Book your tickets in our shop. If you’d like to book in bulk or through your employer, contact us to arrange an invoice.
