Mandy Logan (@5urv1va7rix) To Keynote RVAsec 2019!

We are pleased to announce that Mandy Logan will be keynoting RVAsec 2019!

 

Following a series of 5 strokes and major head injuries, Mandy is no longer in the construction engineering industry. She used her life hacking prowess from a non-traditional background (such as skipping five years of K-12 schooling while working on a ranch and then graduating from a giant, traditional high school in 2.5 years with a 4.2 GPA) to re-establish neuro control using her electrical system, her tongue against her teeth, and perseverance. Now, as a happy dyslexic autie (autistic person) she is pursuing all things InfoSec with an emphasis on Incident Response, Neuro Integration, Artificial General Intelligence, and Community, pressing forth to improve the lives of InfoSec professionals and long term ethical neuro tech for those unable to express themselves to their own satisfaction. She enjoys art, travel, naps, speaking, continuing and broadening her own recovery, and good people. Mandy always hopes to be half the person her service dog, Trevor, is (he helped her relearn to walk!).

Silver Sponsor Feature: Malwarebytes

@Malwarebytes

Traditional antivirus relies on outdated signature-based technology that addresses threats at the execution stage of the attack chain. It’s reactive, one-dimensional, and apparently isn’t effective. Malwarebytes employs several proprietary technologies that work together to break the attack chain, from pre-delivery to post-execution.
