Highlights from Day 2 of BSidesSF

The second and final day of BSidesSF was crammed with great talks. Here's a round-up of the discussions that caught my attention. As always, thanks to the volunteers and organizers who consistently make this a must-attend event.

A Boston news station did a story about foreign governments stealing secrets in New England, and Akamai's security efforts are featured prominently. The attacks CSO Andy Ellis describes to the reporter tie in with a lot of the concerns we're hearing about at RSA Conference 2014 in San Francisco this week.

RSAC/BSidesSF 2014: Akamai Web Security Giveaways

For this year's RSA and BSidesSF, Akamai staff will be giving out a lot of cool stuff. We have stickers, T-shirts, pens and special sleeves for your credit and other cards. If you want any of these items, come find me or one of my Akamai InfoSec teammates. Visit our booth in the RSA exhibit hall for such additional items as foam rocket launchers. I also hear there are cool giveaways at the booth of our new Prolexic colleagues.

Prolexic Acquisition: More Research to Share

Now that Akamai's acquisition of Prolexic is official, I can answer a question I've gotten repeatedly: How will the addition of Prolexic impact the new Akamai Security site we're launching next week? It's an easy question to answer, but first some background:
