We will be having two talks. One from Declan (CERT NZ) and another from Craig Rowland (Sandfly Security).

Declan (CERT NZ)

CERT NZ is your first port of call when you need to report a cyber security problem. We support businesses, organisations and individuals affected by cyber security incidents, and provide trusted and authoritative information and advice. Almost one year since CERT NZ became operational,

we will show you a snap shot of the NZ threat landscape, talk about standout incidents/campaigns we saw, the challenges we faced, what we learnt in our first year, and the where to now.


Craig Rowland (Sandfly Security)

Sandfly Security is a startup in Christchurch that is releasing a product to detect compromised Linux systems automatically. During this talk, founder Craig Rowland will talk about what Sandfly is, the techniques it uses to investigate Linux systems for compromise, and discuss general principles and ideas behind Linux forensic investigations to detect intruders. This is an opportunity to see behind the scenes of intrusion detection system development, design considerations, tactics and techniques for automating linux forensics, and any other topics around startups and software development that may come up.
