Zionism, Arabism & Colonialism in the Middle East | BETWEEN 2 WARS I 1936 Part 1 of 3

Zionism, Arabism & Colonialism in the Middle East | BETWEEN 2 WARS I 1936 Part 1 of 3

Tracking an Adversary’s Learning Curve with Edd Black | Hackers of CypherCon

My name is Edd Black. I’ve been doing institutional defense and wonder for companies throughout the Midwest for over ten years at this point. I’m on Twitter, I also blog when my workplace allows me to do so. This talk was born out of frustration of dealing with offenders. What we’ll talk about is skilled persistent threat. Everybody’s heard of an APT. And then every heard of a script read. As if there’s nothing in between that you need to…

I’m Indy Neidell; this is World War Two.
