ABSTRACTS
1) FINGERPRINT SCANNER SECURITY: ANOTHER HORROR STORY FROM IOT WORLD

Fingerprint scanners are nothing other but computers with ARM CPU running Linux. Yet they often are critical elements of an organisation's physical security strategy. In this talk, I will discuss discoveries made after only a cursory look at one such device and share my thoughts on combined cyber-to-physical attacks.

2) CYBERSECBLOGGING - PUTTING YOUR PASSION INTO WRITING

Most technical savvy has common weaknesses: soft skills. Either they have stage fright or writing difficulties. In IT security, this is very important. Whether you are a VAPT, DFIR, CTI, Researcher, or even just merely a CISO's secretary. In this talk, Mike will share technical articles he posted online (Cybrary & Personal) based on his personal experience as a security professional and the context behind those writings.

KEY TAKEAWAY
- Learn the unconventional way of blogging
- Showcase technical skills through writing to boost self-confidence
- Visibility in the cybersecurity community and hiring managers
