Abstract: RSA Cryptosystem
RSA is the most widely used public key cryptography algorithm, from the encryption in HTTPS to digital signatures. In this talk we describe RSA encryption and digital signatures algorithms, applications, and best practices for implementation. We demonstrate the Bleichenbacher Million Message attack on RSA and explain how to prevent this attack. We discuss Shor's Quantum algorithm for breaking RSA and its effect on the future of public key cryptography.

Speaker Bio:
Emily Stamm is a security researcher at Allstate specializing in cryptography. She is also the Vice President of CyberSecurity Non-Profit (, an organization that promotes security education through hosting free events featuring networking, presentations, hackathons, panel discussions, and technical workshops. Emily graduated from Vassar College with a degree in mathematics where she published several papers on number theory research. She is passionate about cryptography, quantum computing, machine learning, and mathematics.

Abstract: Personal Cybersecurity
What is cybersecurity and why you should care? We will discuss the 3 main Attack Vectors across devices, connections and accounts
We will provide tips on what you can do to combat:
Phishing, Data brokers, Social Engineering,Identity theft/mail fraud, Credit card fraud, Tax fraud,Credential stuffing/password spraying attacks

Speaker Bio:
Jose-Miguel Maldonado believes in empowering every person to take back control of their personal cybersecurity. Because his experience includes mitigating cyberattack vectors, corporate & device hardening, and staying ahead of attack trends, he has emerged as a thought leader in the cybersecurity space. He blends expertise in InfoSec, Human Resources, and Business Operations with a love of writing and of helping others. Merging these talents, he has acquired a reputation for creating cybersecurity champions out of non-technical people.
