Women Level Up

Diversity in Tech: Women Level Up is a meetup aimed at empowering software engineers and web developers who identify as female, non-binary, and/or are from underrepresented backgrounds, through education, networking, and mentorship. While there is a plethora of amazing tech meetups available, we noticed a need for something geared towards people who identify as mid-level or have some experience already working as a programmer.

Maybe you graduated from a bootcamp a few years ago and have already had a couple jobs. Maybe you’ve been junior awhile and want to be mid-level. Maybe you’re mid-level and want to be senior. Maybe you want to be the next team lead. We want to help you get there! We intend to build out the technical component of our meetup to really challenge you and level up your skills.

Listening to Internet Background Radiation: A Cyber Security Workshop
Luna Frank-Fischer and Mia Gil Epner || Software Engineers at Expanse
close Listening to Internet Background Radiation

Malicious actors on the internet are constantly probing and scanning for potential vulnerabilities. Their activity generates a huge amount of "noisy" packets that are not legitimate attempts to connect to services but may be the first scouting step of a cyber attack. This "internet background radiation" is persistent, consistent, and loud. In this workshop, we'll support participants in standing up software to observe internet background radiation from AWS machines, and we'll enable them to perform basic analyses on what they see and report out on those findings. Participants will walk away with an understanding of how internet scanning fits into the landscape of cybersecurity, as both an omnipresent source of attacks and as a powerful defensive tool.
