"Enterprise Trends and Cool Hacks from Blackhat / Defcon" by Carlos Hoyos of the CIO Security Lab at IBM (

Carlos Hoyos will talk about DefCon and Black Hat - one of the largest security conference in the world. Over 7,000 where people attended. The focus of the conference ranged from mobile, hardware, DIY products, malware, DDOS, privacy and anything digital that you can think of. Hoyos will provide a list of things that he found interesting at DefCon: Femtocells, exploiting apps for fun & profit, attacking mobile encryption, compromising mobiles through USBs, mobile devices broadcast too much information, wireless authentication is still too weak, SIM cards are minicomputers and run Java.

Carlos Hoyos leads the CIO Security Lab at IBM, a security incubator and accelerator to pilot and deploy emerging tech in security and mobility. He's a techie, and when not hacking things, can be found cycling or exploring Brooklyn with his two young kids.
