🧵Heading home after a great time at #CYBERWARCON yesterday. IMO, a good threat intel or #INFOSEC conference should mainly 1. Stimulate new thinking and grow the field 2. Facilitate genuine networking 3. Be fun! This conference is definitely all three.
I’m in awe of @JohnHultquist and Amy’s ability to basically will this thing into existence year after year with only a small volunteer force to help them. Thank you to them, the rockstar review board of John, @ridt, @olgs7, @t_gidwani for producing an outstanding agenda…
…and to everyone else who helped put the conference on! My gratitude to the various sponsors that also made this conference possible. Congrats to all on another fantastic year.

In addition to the 2016 US election interference, Sandworm was responsible for:
-Intrusions into US critical infrastructure

Greetings from CyberWarCon, the only conference bold enough to take a stance on cyberwar right in the name.

They are con.
For a first year conference, there are way more recognizable people than you'd expect.
I am also here.
