The next edition of BruCON is already at our doors! Like the previous edition, TrueSec is helping the conference crew by providing online and technical resources and we have again a free ticket to offer for the two-days conferences (26 & 27 of September in Ghen, Belgium).

To win the ticket, there is a small challenge to solve. Are you interested? It starts with this file: The first one who solves the challenge will receive a free access to the event which includes:

  • 2 days of top-quality international speakers
  • Workshops
  • The opportunity to meet your peers and make new ones
  • Food (breakfast, lunch & dinner)

Good luck!

Telling fortunes in information security?


I’m actually in London to attend BSidesLondon and InfoSecurity Europe. I had the great opportunity to write a guest blog article for the InfoSecurity blog. My article has been published here. Happy reading!

You have a SIEM! And now?

Cyber Threat Intelligence

The 2014 edition of is over. I was invited and received a speaker slot. I talked about one of my favourite topic: log management and SIEM but from another perspective. For a few years, SIEM solutions were pushed in front of the stage! Presented as the “security threats killer”, we must be honest: Still today, it’s very difficult to get the best of such expensive tools! Not that they are bad but they remains “tools”. Creating and maintaining correlation rules or filters is an endless game. Based on my experience, I reviewed the current situation and explained why SIEM solutions failed. The second part focused on ideas to improve the detection of threats inside the organisation.

The slides have been publised on

BruCON 0x05 Challenge


Since the first edition (already five years ago!), I participated to the Belgian security conference: BruCON as a member of the crew! Organized by a bunch of super-motivated infosec guys, the conference has now its place amongst the best security events around the world.

We are getting close to the next edition which will be held in Ghent on 26 & 27 September 2013. They are still tickets available but I’ve a good news for you: This year, TrueSec is a (small) sponsor and I got one free ticket. I decided to offer it to one of my readers/contacts but… you have to solve a small challenge first! Tempted? It starts here:
