Well that's Vegas done. 8 days of absolutely non-stop events that's now pretty much robbed me of my voice but hey, I got a flying cow! Scott and I both spent BSides, Black Hat and DEF CON doing "hallway con" or in other words, wandering around just meeting people. The personal engagement you get from these ad hoc meetups really can't be beat and I appreciate everyone who took the time to come over and say hi. Just a sample of our week is below:


  1. Just in case these events seem like nothing but glamour, a quick reminder of what goes into a long trip like this (pretty sure that's still my longest blog post ever...)
  2. The Canva data breach is now in HIBP and it's massive! (137M unique email addresses with 44% of them already in HIBP)
  3. The StockX breach went in today and it's "only" 6.8M records (but also MD5 password hashes in 2019, seriously...)
  4. Big thanks to strongDM for sponsoring my blog over the last week! (see why Splunk's CISO says "strongDM enables you to see what happens, replay & analyze incidents. You can't get that anywhere else")
