The broader picture a the conference will be given by a well known person in this field. He will talk about "Security 2020" This is Dr. Anton Chuvakin, and he is a Research Director at Gartner's Gartner for Technical Professionals (GTP) Security and Risk Management Strategies team in his day job.
We have finally gotten an interview with Mark Schloesser. This is the guy that does not say too much, but delivers as hell. “Less talk more code” could easily describe him. He will take you through Configuring an Environment for Threat Assessment This is building a functional and centralized threat intelligence framework! We are really looking forward to this workshop!

So Marty, tell us, why did you become a security expert?
Got several calls from customers today. Their end-customers were calling them telling that their phone is ringing in the middle of the night. When some of them answers, there is no one there. We do some traces on it from our VoIP platform but can not find anything, and concludes there is random SIP INVITES beeing sent directly to the adapter.
This is a common way of searching for open VoIP gateways. They send a SIP INVITE with a real number that they control. If the SIP INVITE is making a successful call to this destination, the traffic suddenly increases after a while.
