Threat-centric is a space for infosec related activities. It is hosted by the Portcullis Labs crowd who've attended both of the last 2 UK camps and who can regularly be found elsewhere on the infosec circuit.

Technical, activist and infosec professional presentations & workshops will be accepted. Presentations ideally need to be 45 minutes long with 5 minutes for Q&A. Workshops can be either 60 or 120 minutes in length including setup/breakdown time.

In particular, we are looking for presentations & workshops in the following (but not exclusive) areas:

  • Offensive techniques and defensive controls
  • Bugs and reverse engineering
  • Embedded/hardware hacking
  • "Deprecated" technologies
  • Humans

We will also be hosting a hacker jeopardy style CTF and associated treasure hunt and giving away torches and USB wristbands. Come visit us.
