May 2017 Privacy Lab - Privacy on the Blockchain: An Introduction to Zcash

Zcash is the first open-source and decentralized cryptocurrency offering strong privacy in the form of shielded transactions, which are made possible by a novel form of zero-knowledge cryptography called zk-SNARKs. Like Bitcoin, Zcash payments are published on a public blockchain, except the sender, recipient, and amount of a transaction may remain fully private. In this talk, we will provide an uncomplicated overview of Zcash, how it works, the history of the protocol and its conception by a talented group of academics, cryptographers and scientists in the original "Zerocoin" paper, what’s happened since it finally launched in late 2016, and what’s in store for the future of ZEC. We'll also look at the current state of the network and discuss the remarkable way we generated the public parameters required to construct and verify shielded transactions, in the so-called parameter generation ceremony.

Detecting and Blocking Bots and Non Human Visitors (Workshop)

Women in Security and Privacy (WISP) is proud to partner with PerimeterX to offer a 90 minutes hands-on web security workshop that discusses the threats from the latest generation of malicious Bots (nonhuman automated tools) and puts you into the drivers’ seat to learn on how to protect your web application.

Today up to 50% of a company’s web traffic can come from Bots and create a real threat to websites and applications. Bots are ideal workers for repetitive and complex tasks and can easily and efficiently run on different hosts and cloud services—or invisible as malware on infected machines. Bad Bots are participating in different types of attacks impacting all types of applications and businesses—performing the entire scale of attacks from web scraping, account abuse (account creation or account takeover), credit card and coupon guessing scalping, and click fraud. Bots range in complexity and abilities from simple scripts to full browser-based tools that can render complex pages and even solve CAPTCHA challenges.

Please feel free to invite your fellow privacy and security colleagues, but hurry! Space is limited.

Privacy by Design workshop (Seattle May 2017)

Enterprivacy Consulting Group’s Privacy by Design workshop is a half day workshop to help companies build privacy considerations into their product offerings. Privacy by Design is an international concept championed by regulators and industry alike as a means of building trust into interactions with consumers.

The half day workshop consists of training around the conceptual foundations of Privacy by Design, followed by training on a practical process to achieve it. The process is based on the 5 i’s: Identifying the Individual,the Invader, and the Invasion and then Implementing controls to mitigate that privacy invasion. Participants will learn how to identify invasions from a particular use case and then control selection based on risks to the individual, proportionality of the risk to the benefits and legitimacy of the use. Several case studies will be presented and discussed.

Workshops are limited to 20 participants.
