Based on a Splunk backend it combines quick and easy installation with high-quality metrics and a super-small footprint.

Securing Windows desktops – why it’s our problem! Jorrit talks through “the basics” of securing a Windows desktop to help reduce the risk of ransomware attack and improve image management. Ransomware attacks are up 300%. Whilst deploying Virtualised desktops can help keep apps and data in the datacentre, the responsibility of protecting the users from such attacks are no longer the job of the InfoSec guys. Securing users and desktops is fast becoming the responsibility of the End user computing / Windows engineering teams.

12.30 – 13.00 How Websites Steal Your Machine’s Resources – Browser Performance Analyzed. Browsers have come a long way. What started as simple applications for the display of text and the odd image has turned into a platform for web apps. One could say browsers have become operating systems in their own right. The average end user easily juggles a few dozen browser tabs without blinking an eye. This corresponds to an equally large number of web apps running concurrently – on your machines, consuming your machines’ resources! High time we take a good look at how browsers utilize system resources, how different browsers stack up against each other and whether adding a GPU helps reduce overall load. In this session you will learn:

– How and why browsers significantly impact performance
– Which browsers are best for user density
– What can be done to reduce browser resource footprint

Anatomy of how a company got hacked – part DEUX. Security is a current topic (that should be) on everyone’s agenda: your systems, data, identity and IPO are at risk! In order to understand how to protect yourself against hackers you need to understand how hackers think and how they operate.
In this session Geert Braakhekke and Remko Weijnen will present the analysis of a fictional attack against a car company where hackers managed to capture credentials, bypass multifactor authentication and hack one of the company’s products. Hackers used interesting technology such as a USB device that emulates a keyboard, GPU technology to crack hashes and smartcard emulators. Emphasis in the session will be to live demo the technologies used rather than Powerpoint them.
