BSides St. John's 2012 Conference

[By  YellowJKT]
I had a great time at the 2012 Security BSides St. John's Conference "Steering you through the Security Fog".  This year (According to Eventbrite) the conference was sold out.  There was ~100 attendees according to my sources and a beginning-head-count-tweet suggests I was 1 of 5 girls (many of them pictured to your right haha).  I highly recommend anyone who is a security enthusiast to keep your eyes open early to sign up for next time.

I wasn't sure what to expect but the speakers were fantastic.  No problem to tell they are use to public speaking.  My favorite talks being among:

Karim Nathoo / @karamnathoo - Command and Control and Data Exfiltration
Kellman Meghu / @kellman - How NOT To Do Security: Lessons Learned From the Galactic Empire
