Each year SecTor hosts a variety of activities in conjunction with conference sessions. Here are just some of the activities from SecTor 2019.

Network | Eat | Drink

All Full Conference pass holders are invited to our Networking Reception and Party after day one of the conference in the Locomotive Hall at Steam Whistle Brewing. Stay tuned for 2020 details.

Lock Pick Village

The Lock Pick Village at SecTor provided attendees with an opportunity to get hands on with physical security education. Our lock pick experts offered demos and answered questions about the art of picking locks. On site was a huge collection of locks for attendees to try their hand at. Participants learnt the fundamentals of security engineering by exploring locks and attacks from all over the world and throughout history and put what they learnt into practice.

IoT Hack Lab

The IoT Hack Lab by Tripwire returned in 2019 to provide attendees with the opportunity to learn the IoT hacking tradecraft. The Hack Lab consisted of a wide range of ‘smart’ devices, and laptops running a customized Kali Linux installation complete with self-contained virtual hack targets and additional tools. Tripwire researchers were on-hand to help attendees navigate the world of device hacking using techniques which have netted hundreds of vulnerabilities and top place in the SOHOpelessly Broken competition at DEF CON 23. With plenty of available gear and a little bit of time, the Hack Lab gave attendees the ability to conduct effective penetration testing on embedded devices.
