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!

Layer 8 Conference

Rhode Island Convention Center

I wanted to make sure that everyone was aware of the Layer 8 conference happening in Providence at the RI Convention Center on Saturday, June 8th. This is a full day conference with two tracks of talks on social engineering and OSINT, three villages (Lockpicking, OSINT, Mental Health Hackers) as well as networking opportunities and companies that are hiring! This conference is for everyone, from those who are curious about social engineering or OSINT, to current IT security professionals, to investigators and social engineers! If you'd like to attend, please go to https://layer8conference.com and purchase your $50 ticket for all this content. Plus, your lunch is included!!

A Peek Into Fileless Malware

Tech Collective

This presentation will cover fileless malware with the goal of deepening your understanding of techniques used to stay off of disk. This talk will outline the theories and reasoning behind the usage of fileless techniques, methods of execution, evasion, as well as demonstrations of techniques that leverage Microsoft-signed binaries to execute arbitrary malicious code. The presentation will be followed by an open Q&A session, so bring any and all questions! Matt Hand is Rapid7's Red Team Technical Lead, penetration tester, and security researcher with over seven years of experience in offensive security, primarily focusing on adversary simulation. Before joining Rapid7, Matt was a Senior Penetration Tester and Red Team Lead at Tenable where he developed and lead their penetration testing and red teaming capability. Matt currently lives in the DC metro area with his small family and enjoys coding, beers, and lifting heavy things. Matt will be presenting remotely, via video. This event is sponsored and hosted by the Rhode Island Tech Collective.

Tech Collective

We will be meeting on Monday, July 15th at the Tech Collective. Finalizing details with a speaker. If you have a topic you'd like to present on, please let us know!

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?
