Sheffield played host to OmniCyber Security’s pen testing team recently when our team visited SteelCon, the largest hacking convention in the North of England. As part of our ongoing commitment to staying at the forefront of cybersecurity development, our team embraced this opportunity to learn, network, and share knowledge with industry peers.
Harnessing the Power of Knowledge Sharing
The convention featured a lineup of insightful talks, delving into topics such as the evolving landscape of ransomware, the intriguing world of failed cyber criminals, and a live walkthrough of a hacker’s path to domain authority. These talks provided valuable insights and enabled our team to gain fresh perspectives on the latest cybersecurity threats and trends.
Jack Button, one of our skilled pen testers said: “There was a really fun, playful feel to the convention, it wasn’t just serious and corporate. For example, in the goodie bags, your ‘ticket’ was actually a red cape, so when you’re walking into Sheffield Hallam University, people are walking around in capes, which put everyone at ease, so conversation flows immediately.
“It was great to see some of the guys we really look up to and respect in the industry, both in terms of the companies they work for and as people too.”
Conventions like SteelCon are an ideal platform for cybersecurity professionals to come together and pool their expertise in tackling the latest cyber challenges. As you can see, our junior pen testers Kyle and Sam were the only two unlucky enough to have their cape picture immortalised on our website.
Events like SteelCon are essential for our pen testers to stay sharp and up-to-date with the rapidly changing cybersecurity landscape. The convention not only fostered knowledge exchange but also offered access to cutting-edge tools that will enhance our capabilities in accurately representing potential cyber threats for our clients.
