This presentation outlines a new twist on an existing social engineering attack. In the past, we have worked on getting users to plug in USB devices to drop malicious documents and executables. While this attack sometimes proves our point, it is the tip of the iceberg that can be done. Enter Social Forensication. This is a two-pronged attack, consisting first of collecting a memory image for offsite offensive forensic analysis, the second being a rogue Wi-Fi access point attack. During this presentation, we will walk through the steps to perform each attack. Since defense is just as (if not more) important as the attack itself, we will also discuss mitigations (technical and procedural) and relevant windows detections for these attacks.

Dear Rob,

Please join ISSA KC chapter members and other security professionals at Lidia's in Kansas City on April 25th, 2019.

Topic: Be Aware of the Risk Inside

Summary:
Historically organizations prioritize external threats above insider threats, however employees pose major security vulnerabilities and account for nearly 90% of all security incidents. Some incidents are malicious/intentional (29%), while the majority are unintentional (71%). Incidents come in many forms, including information and physical property theft, unauthorized access, workplace violence, sabotage, security compromise and espionage. Whether malicious or accidental, insider incidents can weaken customer trust and cause irreparable transactional and reputational damage for a company. Understanding the potential threats and creating a holistic approach to managing insider risk is the key to safeguarding your 'keys to the kingdom'.

Tuesday, April 23, 2019 at 7:00:00 PM Harpo's 4109 Pennsylvania Ave, Kansas City, MO

This meetup will be a networking focus event! Connecting WordPress Professionals with business owners that need help AND other WordPress Professionals to help them in the areas needed.

We will start out with Allen Little speaking about "The Art of Networking" then we will go around with 1 minute "Elevator Pitches" and pass business cards. Also will introduce our new WPKC Business Card Binder. More details coming soon...

ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
The ability to meet someone today, and then know them as a client tomorrow is an art. We live in a society where the vast majority of business professionals doesn't know how to network efficiently. It's one concept to meet a lot of people, it's another concept to run a business. Your success in network is reliant on two things; your ability to get people to like you, and your ability to get people to trust you.

The Art of Networking program was designed specifically for professionals looking to maximize ROI from networking events.

Blue of being blue? Want to be more offensive in the office? Many defenders what want to try their hand at offense. The trick is, they can! You can do bits of pen testing in your defensive role and management will likely thank you for it. In this talk, Tim will discuss how he used his defensive roll to pivot into offense. Even if you don't want to leave defense (because defense is fun too) you might want to spend some time looking at the other side.

Saturday Meeting Format

Our Saturday meetings are free-formed. Attendees bring up topics that interest them or that they want feedback on. Attendees are welcome to participate or just kick back and soak in the discussions. There are also no dumb questions! If you're just starting out this is a great opportunity to ask questions.

The meeting structure usually follows this format:

* Introductions / meet and greet new members
* Open group discussion on any development topic, concern or question; discussing any new happenings that interest the group
* Get help setting up your development environment, looking at code, quick demos, etc. (time permitting)

All levels welcome!

Maybe you have been using using PHP for a week or even a decade--we all have things to learn and share. If you enjoy working with PHP, or want to learn more about it this meeting is for you.

Get Involved

If you're looking for a presentation-focused event with talks and demos, check out our weeknight meetups. We would also love to have you present! Please contact an organizer through Meetup or talk after a meeting to tell us more about your topic.

Saturday, April 20, 2019 at 10:30:00 AM Trader Joe's 4201 W 119th St, Leawood, KS

This field trip is what UX is all about. We will take mock grocery list (or bring your real one) and navigate Trader Joe's to find them. We will spend about 30 minutes in the store. Then we will discuss in the courtyard, what you love about the shopping experience, what you did not and how the experience could have been better.

Weather permitting we will be in the courtyard for the discussion, if not then the Hen House across the street has a seating area where lunch and coffee can be ordered.

I double checked the times for this meeting-so sorry about the mixup last time.

We will meet right outside the store at 10:30 am Click here for event
