"The presentations included topics like incident response, social networks, working with law enforcement on cases, and using USB devices for attack. The last topic, presented by Steve Goldsby, was my favorite because we've all read about how malicious USB devices can be, and in the presentation, Steve gave live demonstrations of tools he uses during penetration tests.
