    ElysiumSecurity was invited by the Mauritian National Computer Security Incident Response Team (CERT-MU) to present at the FIRST Technical Colloquium 2017 which took place on the 30th of November 2017.
    We gave a presentation on how IDS can be used both as a traditional defensive tool and also a more original offensive tool.

    The aim of this presentation was to introduce the attendees of the various free and Open Source IDS offerings and to highlight the benefits and key components of a successful IDS implementation.
    It was also emphasised on how easy it is to get started with an IDS both from a software and hardware point of view.

    Below is a link to our presentation. If you want a more complete narrative please fee free to contact us for more information.
    We would like to thanks the Mauritian National Computer Board ...

    How to build a Red Team and Why?

    I recently gave a talk at the Rant Forum in London on the topic of "RedTeam, why this is more than a buzz word?". It was an interesting experience and whilst different from traditional security events, as the crowd can and will interrupt you at any time, it was very enjoyable.
    Many attendees asked if I could produce some "slides" after the talk. As no slides were used, below is a collection of notes from wich the talk was based on.

    In this post we will explain what RedTeam is, how does it fit with other similar security services and what advantages does it bring to an organisation. We will also look into what works? what doesn’t? And where is this “new” type of service going?
    1. DEFINITION
    A Red Team is part of a trio of services which increases in sophistication: Vulnerability Assessment, Penetration Testing and then Red Teaming. We will d...

    RANT FORUM - Red Team Recipes Presentation

    I will be giving a talk tomorrow evening, the 28th of November at around 6pm, in London at the Risk and Network Threat (RANT) Forum .

    The topic is:
    Why RedTeam is more than just a buzz word? What works? What doesn't? And where is this "new" type of service might be going? All those questions answered by someone who is actually delivering Red Team activities.

    Registration is free, you get free drinks and food... plus you get to hear me talk, so what is not to like?! :)

    You can register HERE

    The RANT Forum is quite different from your typical free security briefing, for a start it is not a sales forum. However, the company behind it is a recruitment agency, so they are still interested in taping the UK Security professional community!

    BlackHat Mobile Security Summit - London 2015

    In June 2015 I attended the Blackhat Mobile Security Summit in London, a 2 days event filled with talks from various researchers and security professionals, there was a 3rd day in the form of a workshop for anyone attending the Interop London hosting event
    Blackhat is historically a USA based event with its main conference taking place in Las Vegas every year, lately they started to host similar (but smaller) conferences around the world such as in Singapore and Amsterdam (which I blogged about last year here).

    This London edition was definitely on the "smaller" side and this actually had a few advantages:

  • You could attend all the sessions as none were run in parallel
  • It was easier to mingle among fellow participants and speakers
  • There was less "walking"! :)

  • The quali...
