3) “Fingerprint Scanner Security: Another Horror Story from the IoT World” by Vladimir Ivanov

Fingerprint scanners are nothing but computers with ARM CPU running Linux. They are often critical elements of an organization’s physical security strategy. In this talk, Vladimir will discuss discoveries made after only a cursory look at one such device and share his thoughts on combined cyber-to-physical attacks.

4) “CyberSecBlogging – Putting Your Passion Into Writing” by Michael Rebultan

Most people who are tech-savvy have common weaknesses: it’s either that they have stage fright of writing difficulties. In IT security, this is very important regardless of whether you are a VAPT, DFIR, CTI, researcher, or even just a secretary of a CISCO. In this talk, Mike will share technical articles which he posted online (Cybrary & Personal) based on his experiences as a security professional and the context behind those writings.
