OWASP Brisbane Chapter Meeting - July 2014
Tuesday, July 8, 2014 from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM (AEST)
In July's meeting, Kieran Jacobsen will present on the topic "Powershell Security Shenanigans".
Powershell is something that is becoming the must-have tool for system administrators in the Microsoft world. However it has long been overlooked by those in the field, including security staff. In this talk Kieran will introduce Powershell, discuss Microsoft’s aim and rationale for its existence, and show how Microsoft’s best intentions can be turned against them by demonstrating how this automation platform can become an attack automation platform..
Whilst Kieran’s day job is not security-related, he has a keen interest in all aspects of the security industry. His background is in systems administration, with a focus on Microsoft server technologies and automation. Kieran has been lucky enough to work with various infrastructure projects in a range of organisations including those in banking, superannuation and managed services sectors.
