Abstract: Sure, you may know how to subnet a class "C" network into 64 different networks, but how about where to go to learn about technology that has yet to make it into a textbook? Or to find your next job? Or just somewhere where you can commensurate with someone who understands what you mean when you say, "That APT left the MSSP DOA!" This presentation will outline the OSINT and TTP's cyber security practitioners use in industry to connect, build, and maintain networks, with an eye towards how Boilermakers who are CERIAS about cybersecurity can do the same.
