ToorCon TwentyOne speaker: Bruce Potter

Bruce Potter is the founder of The Shmoo Group, CISO at Expel, and helps run ShmooCon each year in Washington DC. Bruce has over 20 years (yikes!) of experience in hacking and cyber security including working with DoD an Intelligence Community clients as well as numerous finance, healthcare, and transportation companies. Bruce used to do a lot of wireless and network attack and defense work but lately focuses on risk management, threat categorization, and building more secure systems. Bruce likes to talk about himself in the third person, but usually only does it in bios.


Talks

Pen testing by asking questions: the Art of Elicitation

Pen testing doesn't have to be all dropping exploits and launching shells. Learning to ask the right questions at the right time can lead to a better understanding of vulnerabilities on your targets than actually running tests.

Bike Ride

Make sure to show up on time with your bike! There are numerous bike rental shops nearby as well as dockless bikes in the area that you can book with a phone app (Lime, Mobike, Ofo, Spin, Bird, etc) in case you don't mind how fancy your bike is. We're setting up this bike ride to be relatively slow paced so everyone can bike together and will take roughly 2-3 hours for the full round-trip. See you there!
