18:30 Introduction

18:45 Andy Hornsby-Jones

Andy's bio line probably best introduces this:"I also like to break things." Andy has a tool talk covering some of the methods used to identify vulnerabilities and exploit them.

19:30 Matt Summers (NCC)

Matt's research into website & online reputation identified a need to gauge how far a site considered 'safe' such as maybe the BBC was from links to known malware. He's been developing the tool and wants to introduce it to the chapter.

20:15 PwC Penetration tester (tbc)

PwC's information security team has been busy with the topical heartbleed and is going to look at some methods used to detect the vulnerability, (if the demo works) detect attempts to exploit the vulnerability and share some of the defence mechanism's.

21:00 Informal Discussion & Networking Britons Protection, Vine Inn or City Arms for extended networking...
