Description

OWASP Dublin are delighted to announce Facebook will be sponsoring & hosting the next OWASP Dublin chapter meetup. We will have two speakers on the night along with some light refreshments.


Talk 1: Gavin O’Gorman

Gavin has been working in Symantec for the past nine years, Gavin is an intelligence analyst on the attack investigations team. Before moving to the attack investigations team in 2013, he worked as a reverse engineer, and as an incident handler. Gavin's primary role is to gather together information from both Symantec data sources, and open sources, to build a comprehensive picture of an attack, or attackers. Another aspect of the job is to work with law enforcement to assist in the investigation of e-crime where possible. Prior to working in Symantec, Gavin spent several years researching network security in Dublin City University, and currently lectures part-time for the DCU Masters in Security & Forensics course


Gavin will be talking about how over the past year, researchers in Symantec have been tracking a group they refer to as Hayworm. From what appeared to be a disparate set of unrelated victims, Symantec researchers have been able to identify the operators behind these attacks, and their motivation. Gavin will describe the investigation, including how the attackers work, and how researchers managed to identify them.

Talk 2: Jack Whitton

Jack is a Security Engineer, based at Facebook's London HQ. Jack focuses primarily on the Whitehat program, which involves interacting with the security community who find vulnerabilities in Facebook-family products, in addition to working with internal teams to ensure code is shipped securely. Before joining Facebook in 2016, he was one of the top researchers in the Whitehat program.
