Hacker Halted 2012

We were at Hacker Halted in Miami 2012 and we loved it.

The presentations basically revolved around the following subjects: Threats & Counter Measures, Incident Response & Computer Forensics, Secure Programming, Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery, Social Engineering, Virtualization Security, Mobile Security, Malware and Botnets, Physical Security, Governance and Policies & Standards.

For those that don’t know, Hacker Halted is a hacking conference focused on Computer and Information Security which is organized by EC-Council. EC-Council is the security organization behind the internationally recognized Certified Ethical Hacker designation, or CEH for short.

The objective of the Hacker Halted conferences, according to their website, is to “raise international awareness towards increased education and ethics in IT Security.”

The event this year, for the third year running, was in Miami. The hackers conference is in its 14th year. There is also an opportunity to complete training prior to the main conference event since the event hosts infosec trainings and workshops led by EC-Council instructors and trainers.

Here is a list of speakers. We have interviewed some of these speakers (to watch one of their presentations just follow the link on their presentation title).
