    Title: (Beginner) Fighting a Virus with a Spreadsheet

    Description:
    On 27 June 2017, a piece of malware raced across the globe and took out many organisations including some that were similar to the one I was employed at. But we were safe and, in fact, not worried at all.

    All thanks to clever use of spreadsheets.

    In this talk, given entirely within Excel (yes, really) I go through the methods used to protect the organisation from this malware. If a talk given entirely in Excel sounds boring - you haven't seen this talk.

    I have (virtually) given this talk twice - at a local Australian conference called ComfyCon and at a charity event hosted by Second Order Chaos. In both cases - they were blown away by the creativity of the "slides" and the fun way that this is presented.

    There is a serious aspect to this though. It goes through the different phases of getting an effective patch program established. It has a 'hacker' aspect to it in that it asks people to be excited and interested and curious about their security controls and the processes that lead to the outcomes that are achieved.

    I've thrown some humour and some easter eggs into the presentation.

    Speaker(s): Allen Baranov

      Thanks for the heads-up! I verified the Blue Team Village schedule, and updated events accordingly.
