Activities at BayThreat

BayThreat 4 has two tracks of security talks, but we also have other activities such as workshops and networking events!


Black Bag Room

Friday 10:30am-5:00pm Rift Recon hosts the black bag room: go hands-on with a large collection of physical security tools, from common field use tools to lesser-known bypass methods. Inspect tools and covert items, grill our staffers, try your hand at bypassing door hardware from the other side, decoding padlocks, and learn how to defeat different types of motion sensors.

Workshop - Beware of Network: Unleash your Network on Threats and Adversaries

Saturday 1:00pm-5:00pm Randy Ivener and Joe Karpenko will run a 4 hour training session on configuring your network for incident response. This session will be first come, first serve until the seats are filled.

Synopsis: Today's threat landscape is a complex battlefield rife with passionate hacktivists, profiteering criminals, insidious bad-actors, industrial espionage, and powerful nations. These threat actors are exploiting the security weaknesses of specifically targeted organizations for their own gain. Whether the motivation is monetary, publicity for a cause, theft of trade secrets, intellectual property, customer information, or increased competitive advantage, the proliferating presence of threats in the cyber landscape thriving.
Building on the six phases of Incident Response and inherent network instrumentation features such as NetFlow and DNS telemetry, we will discuss recommendations for protecting your network infrastructure, proprietary and customer information, servers, clients, and users.
* These recommendations should be deployed as part of the Preparation phase of Incident Response.
* Practical and effective use of these recommendations provide critical insight and awareness into threats in-progress or post compromise.
* These recommendations have been battle tested and helped organizations respond to on-going attacks.
