  • The Hacker's Guide to NOT Getting Hacked

    WeWork 333 George St

    The Hacker's Guide to NOT Getting Hacked Speaker: Jakub Kaluzny “You don’t have to run faster than the bear to get away. You just have to run faster than the guy next to you.” This principle also applies to internet security – the majority of cyber attacks are opportunistic. You don't need to wear a tinfoil hat to keep yourself safe: there are simple changes you can implement in your life and keep the bar high enough to avoid getting hacked. Consider this talk as a "hacker's guide" covering what can be done to secure your data, money and identity. Whether you are a CEO, lawyer, journalist or a student, you probably have a phone, bank account and some social media presence. This is all the hackers need. If you don't have a bank account, they will hijack your Facebook and message your friends who have bank accounts. If you don't have Facebook, they will open a profile for you and tell your friends you've just opened one. If you don't have money, they will apply for a loan in your name. Depending on your level of paranoia, you may decide to introduce some of these techniques to make your internet presence more secure. I will mention real-world attacks and common scam schemes in the following areas: - online banking; - mobile devices, PCs; - corporate assets; - social media; - online shopping; - sharing documents and ID scans. Jakub is a security consultant focusing on high-risk applications, devices and systems. Previously testing security for banks in Europe, working at European Space Agency and protecting instant wire transfers intermediary. Jakub presents his researches at international conferences such as BlackHat, HackInTheBox, OWASP AppSec. Hacking since 12 years old. WeWork is the platform for creators. We provide beautiful workspace, an inspiring community, and meaningful business services to tens of thousands of members around the world.

  • My Health Record: Drink beers and opt-out with CryptoAUSTRALIA (and more!)

    Join us for a social event to opt-out of My Health Record! By the end of the year, a 'My Health Record' will be created for every Australian by default. This is being done with poor transparency and without adequate privacy protections to prevent health data from being stolen and/or misused. Once your record is created it is there forever. You will not be allowed to opt out later and your health record cannot be deleted. Opting out now is the only way to protect your health data. You can still opt in at a later time (if demonstrably strong regulatory and technical protections are put in place). Drink beers and have fun with CryptoAUSTRALIA, while we all opt-out from 'My Health Record' in the pub together.

  • FREE Movie Night - Privacy Awareness Week

    Mitchell Theatre, Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts

    Do you have anything to hide? Technology has enabled governments and corporations to conduct mass surveillance, and this impacts on the very way that we think and behave. What does it say about society when we embrace the 'Nothing to hide' justification? CryptoAUSTRALIA is holding a screening of "Nothing To Hide", an independent documentary film dealing with mass surveillance and its casual acceptance by the general public through the "I have nothing to hide" narrative. Join us for the movie followed by some sparkling discussion at the pub to celebrate Privacy Awareness Week. More info: https://cryptoaustralia.org.au/events/paw2018 RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/privacy-awareness-week-movie-night-nothing-to-hide-tickets-45758180951 Hope to see you there! We could not make this event happen without the generosity and support of our sponsors: - Ncrypt Cellular - https://www.ncryptcellular.com.au/ - Mercury Information Security Services - https://mercuryiss.com.au/ - Australian Information Security Association - https://www.aisa.org.au/

  • Social Event at The SG (Spooning Goats)

    The SG

    Have you noticed that the Galactic Empire's atrocious privacy laws and use of terribly weak cryptography are frequently exploited by the Rebel Alliance? Do you love goats and/or spoons? Join us to chat about these and other privacy issues at CryptoAUSTRALIA's social night at The SG (Spooning Goats). Hang out with privacy enthusiasts and battle for ultimate supremacy in Connect Four.

  • Workshop: Block ads, trackers and malware with Raspberry Pi and Pi-hole (again)

    Due to popular demand we will repeat this workshop on 17 January at the new Fishburners! Join us for the latest CryptoAUSTRALIA workshop and learn to install ‘Pi-hole’ on your home network to protect you and your family from ads, trackers and malware. # Why Do I Need This? Pi-hole is a network-based blocker app you can install on a Raspberry Pi. Pi-hole pulls hundreds of thousands of unwanted domains from third-party sources. Pi-hole can prevent your computer and smartphones from accessing ad-serving pages, trackers, malware/ransomware command and control (C2) servers and phishing websites. Simply connect your Raspberry Pi on your home network and start filtering malicious traffic. # What Can You Expect on the Workshop? The structure of the workshop is still under development. However, we plan a short 30-minute-long presentation on the Pi-hole project. We will show how you can install and configure the device. We will also explain which third-party block lists you should add on top of the built-in ones and why. After the presentation, we will do a freestyle 1-1.5 hour workshop. Bring your own Raspberry Pi with you to the event and install Pi-hole on the spot with us. We will have our friendly workshop instructors helping you with all sorts of troubles on the spot. By the end of the workshop, you will have your Raspberry Pi device with Pi-hole installed on it. You can take the device home, connect it to your LAN and start protecting your family on your home network. We managed to get a promo code from Little Bird Electronics, who are official resellers of Raspberry Pi in Australia and based in Sydney. If you do not own a RPi, but are keen on getting one before the workshop, check out the code in the blog post below.
