Hi All, This is Dustin and Karl from the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC). Recently, we were fortunate enough to attend the Black Hat DC 2010 conference held in Washington, D.C. We wanted to share our personal highlights from this great conference and provide a bit of a weather report too.
What speaks English, Portuguese and Spanish, has a hundred set of eyes, and battles in the defense of good against evil on a daily basis? No, it’s not the mythological Chupacabra ;-)—it’s the BlueHat Security Forum: Buenos Aires Edition. With the Forum ~5 weeks away I’m pleased to share the speaker line up and content details for what is sure to be a an eventful security briefing.
As you may know, the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) EcoStrat blog has served to inform Microsoft customers, security professionals, IT Pros, and developers of the MSRC Ecosystem Strategy Team’s activities. Our goal is to provide a deeper, more personal look into the work the Microsoft Security Response Center does to understand and help support an effective security ecosystem. We do this by showcasing particular individuals and insider stories to offer transparency around the complexity of the many challenges our community faces. We believe that by sharing our experiences, everyone can better understand the magnitude of the problems we face as a community, and how we can work together to mitigate them by helping build an army of defenders.
