As the security industry recovers from BSides SFRSA Conference and Trustycon, we here at Cavalry HQ have been pulling together everything we learned so we can be better and stronger.

  • DuoSecurity launched their initiative, co-branded with The Cavalry and with Bug Crowd, called The idea is to empower small Internet of Things manufacturers (think Kickstarter) with the information needed to secure their projects, no matter how small their budget or big their ambition. Check out their presentation The Internet of Things: We’ve Got to Chat.
  • Jen Ellis from Rapid 7 and Steve Ragan from CSO Online gave a short media training session. It was great to hear from people who are the media and deal with the media every day to get a much better understanding of how we can align our incentives with those of journalists and media outlets. We’ll have to host that kind of event again.
  • The Cavalry had a booth and three speaking slots at the RSA Conference. We were in The Sandbox area, which was new this year. It was a great place, off the vendor floor, where we could really interact with people who stopped by. That drove a lot of good connections with folks, both new recruits and people who’ve been supporting us from the beginning.
