HackaCon 2008

We were @ HackaCon – IT Security Seminar and Open Hack Challenge! It was a well-deserved 2-day holiday on Aug 8-9 for the Tech guys.

August 8, Friday
> Linux Security & Data Center Security
> Hardening against TCP/IP Attacks
> Certified Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures (CEH)
> Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT)

August 9, Saturday
> Microsoft Security
> Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI)
> EnCase Computer Forensic Part I
> EnCase Computer Forensic Part II

Overall, this IT security seminar held at the PSE Bldg. in Ortigas was good enough. Speakers from international and local tech industry were impressive – based on expertise, accomplishments, and certifications. The speakers list include Muhammad Islam (Network Security Consultant Kuwait), Wilbert Ontoy (Bitshield), Armand Hernandez (PCS), and Sir Ariel Ilumin (PNP-CIDG). However, l’d say the sessions are quite not that outstanding. But that’s to be expected given the 2-hour time alloted for each session. I think this was the first and will most likely be a yearly conference. In fact, I thought i heard Singapore’s next.

We were given free shirts though (for pickup next week). My two best sessions are Ethical Hacking and Computer Forensics.
