Join the South Yorkshire branch to take a look at cyber security case studies and how you can protect yourself!
Watch the video
The Queens cover a range of recent case studies! Their main focus will be on how Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) has been used by the black hats to gain access to unauthorised information specifically through the use of GitHub. The stress will be on how easily it can be for your information to be leaked and what we can do to protect against such issues!
About the speakers
Security Queens Intro (Joint)
We’re the Security Queens – friends who study and work in cybersecurity. Founded at BSides London in 2019, we built Security Queens with a common goal to encourage and promote growth and inclusion in the cybersecurity field, whilst documenting our learning, and hopefully supporting other people in their journeys to break into this space.
Since starting our blog amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, we have published over 50 blog posts and won "Best New and Up-and-Coming Blog" at the European Cybersecurity Blogger Awards 2020 and "Most Educational Blog for User Awareness" at the European Cybersecurity Blogger Awards 2022.
Sophia McCall works as a security consultant in the cybersecurity industry and is a founding member of Security Queens, a brand created to promote inclusion and diversity in tech. Sophia is also a chapter administrator for the Ladies of Cheltenham Hacking Society, captained Team UK at the European Cyber Security Challenge 2019 and is also a Cyber Hunter on Channel 4's Hunted. With a keen interest in automotive security and threat intelligence, her awards from the industry include “Best Newcomer to Security” (2017), “Best New Security Blog” (2018), Highly Acclaimed “Rising Star” (2019), “Cybersecurity Student of the Year” (2020) and most recently was a Top 21 winner of “Most Inspiring Women in Cyber” (2021).
Sarah works as a security consultant for NCC Group and helped to co-found Security Queens alongside Sophia McCall. Sarah is also a chapter lead for the Ladies Hacking Society and is active in the cyber security community, particularly in the conference scene where Sarah won the Best Rookie Award back in 2019 (where has the time gone!). This was the start of her Android fascination and her curiosity has continued to develop in the creation of blog posts and workshops.
