a8n-retrospective/introspective : a minor exercise in ego... presented at BSidesManchester 2019

by Steve “autom8on” Wilson,

Summary : I started my path into security back in 1993 with a job as a physical security guard. Since then, I’ve worked across a wide field of security jobs on both the offensive and defensive sides, for a diverse range of customers. I can’t predict the future, but i certainly have a lot of stories to tell when thinking back to the past. Highs and lows - wins and losses - joys and sorrows. Rather than deliver any deep technical knowledge, or drop a load of 0dayz, I’d like to take a step away from my normal presentation style and tell a few “war stories” from my life in this industry. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
