Incident Response Workshop
One of the Cyber Security roles currently seeing accelerated growth is that of Incident Response Analyst. Many organisations now have a need for ready access to an Incident Response (IR) team and where specialists are not available, are prepared to train existing Cyber Security staff.
Incident Response is a process, not an isolated event, so training is often achieved via Desktop IR games, where the participants will, in small teams, role play their responses to a constantly updating scenario. This training technique is used by many organisations as an effective way to improve the capability of resiliency on incident response.
This workshop will help attendees to increase their overall readiness for a cybersecurity event through a commonly experienced set of situations, where teams will discuss and determine the best course of action for each new challenge as it is presented. It will be both challenging and entertaining, where all opinions will be listened to and evaluated.
The workshop leaders are university academics with expertise in Cyber Security and IR.

Going framework agnostic with BDD
Having code that is not coupled with any framework has a lot of profits. There is small probability that you will be changing framework during your project lifecycle, but that kind of approach gives you easy way to reuse some of your functionalities across different styles of user interaction. GUI? API? Console command? Easy peasy with small effort. Everything with high understanding of domain you are working for.
During this workshop he want you to learn how working close with business and defining their needs together with them can help you creating clean code that you will love to work in long term projects. Attendees will use Behat and PHPSpec to design how their system will communicate internally between their component and with the outside world. At the end you will learn how to create a system that is loosely coupled with a framework.
