What's happening at BSides Augusta?

In this masters edition of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Adam Twitty, Robert Preston, Jeff Lang, and myself discuss security things.

This is another EIS podcast special at BSides Augusta. I have some close friends joining me for this one. Adam, Jeff, and Robert all part of a local user group in Columbia, South Carolina, aptly named ColaSec. I also worked with Adam and Robert at my first security gig.

BSides Augusta is one of my favorite BSides events. It's really well run. It has a great facility and there's so much to do. In fact, I took part in my first conference capture the flag (CTF) with some of the guys from ColaSec. It was quite the experience and a lot of fun. I highly recommend the conference for those free in mid-September.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What it's like to be on a good team
  • What you need to know to get into the field?
  • What paths are available to get into infosec
  • What is ColaSec?
