Blackhat and Defcon Article Posted on and Book Giveaway #1

pnsm_cover_WEBMy “A First-Timerโ€™s Experience at Black Hat and DEFCON” article I talked about in my last post is now live on the front page of along with a picture of Kevin Mitnick and I. When the article went live earlier this week I couldn’t help inserting a mental caption of “A hacker & a hack” when I saw the picture ๐Ÿ™‚

Even though it wasn’t a technical article I’m still quite honored to have an article on the front page of and it’s a nice reminder of the progress I’ve made over the past two and a half years. To spread around a little of the good fortune I’m going to give away some books that I already had copies of but got additional copies of at Blackhat.

I’m limiting the book giveaways to U.S. residents only to keep the shipping costs down but after all the book’s are given away I’ll think of a small giveaway that I’ll open up for everyone.

Giveaway #1 is for one paperback copy of “The Practice of Network Security Monitoring” by Richard Bejtlich. It’s a phenomenal book that I’m sure the winner will enjoy. I’ve set this giveaway up to run between 9/21 and 10/11 so good luck to all.

    • I wish I could have left the book giveaways open for anyone but the international shipping would have cost quite a bit on the bigger books.

      After the three book giveaways I’ll do a giveaway of something good that I’ll leave open to anyone. I’ve got too many friends overseas not to ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Inspirational post sir. I’m a noob to forensics but I can only get better with learning and experience. Best wishes to us both.
