What we're about

Official DefCon group for Rhode Island. This is a resurrection of the DC401 that previously existed, now with the blessing of its former organizer, Agent5. Local DefCon groups cover anything and everything about security. Making, breaking, updating, learning, discussing. One time we might do some soldering, another time we might build a password cracking rig, we might play with a device from the Internet of Things (ugh, that's as painful a term as "cyber" now), maybe do pentesting, pretty much anything that you want to talk about! And best of all, it's free for all!

The Enemy is Inside the Gates, Insider Threats in Healthcare

According to the 2017 Verizon Threat Report, fifty-eight percent of medical data breaches are linked to hospital staff or insiders. Healthcare is the only critical infrastructure sector in the United States that is more likely to be internally compromised than externally. This talk will delve deeper into the topic to isolate why this is so and offer some simple solutions to lower that risk. Speaker Bio: Matt is a Product Security Expert for a medical device manufacturer and teaches Cybersecurity and Resiliency in Healthcare & Cybersecurity and Healthcare Policy at Salve Regina University in Newport, RI as an adjunct professor. He regularly speaks on the topics of cybersecurity and healthcare. This meetup is sponsored by the RI Tech Collective. https://tech-collective.org

Looking for Presenters!
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

We are bringing back DC401! I think we have a great hackerspace for us, just working out those details now. I am targeting January for a first meetup. But I'll get the space squared away and I'm asking that you come and present on something. Let's turn this into a mini-CFP. Post below what you can talk about. Let's say something that takes 15-20 mins for starters. Anything at all related to making, breaking, hacking, building, whatever. Whatcha got people?
