In September I presented The Boring Security Talk at DDD Melbourne, NDC Sydney and the Melbourne Cloud and Datacenter Meetup.
This talk was an ambitious talk and I was attempting to cover a wide range of topics that are not commonly discussed. I really enjoyed putting the talk together and presenting it to everyone.
The NDC session was longer than DDD Melbourne, with some additional content around why items like CI/CD, DNS, Email and package security are so important. There are also some more detailed examples and descriptions.
You can find the slides here:
At the end of the talk, I also provided links to three great resources if you wanted more information:
- MX Toolbox: Providers a range of useful email focused security tools.
- PostMark: provides DMARC weekly digests for free!
- My write-up on managing DNS with DNSControl, CloudFlare, DNSimple, GitHub, VSTS, Key Vault and Docker.
I want to thank everyone who attended and provided feedback to me afterwards. I also want to congratulate the organisers and volunteers who helped run such great events!
