Summer Lecture Series – Malware Archaeology
June 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
We are pleased to host Michael Gough, of Malware Archaeology, for this week’s Summer Lecture Series. Michael is a Malware Archaeologist, meaning, he likes computer viruses and the malicious activity criminals do to computers. Michael’s full time job is responding to malicious computer attacks and the overall improvement of security of the computer network to detect such attacks. Michael authors several Windows logging cheat sheets to help companies record the right things so the criminal activity can be discovered, as well as co-created a tool called LOG-MD to quickly discover the attacks. In the past Michael ran the largest computer security hacker conference in Austin named BSides Austin, helping to educate people and companies on computer security. Michael also maintains a Blog for information Security and IT professionals at HackerHurricane.com.
For today’s lecture at the brewery he will focus on something we should all understand – With all of the big companies’ security breaches and loss of personal data, what do we need to know and how do we protect ourselves?
