I have never attended a Defcon convention before and I am very excited to be attending this year. I need some help in making sure I am prepared for the event.
- If I bring my laptop and connect it to the internet, will it get hacked?
- If so, is there a way I can secure my connection or computer to prevent hacking or make it hard?
I am hoping to be able to tweet and blog while at the convention but I also don't want my server hacked and all the fun that goes with that. If you also have any other general advice for a defcon virgin please comment over on my blog at http://geek.michaelgrace.org/2009/07/advice-for-a-defcon-virgin/ so this can focus on keeping my computer and internet connection secure during the defcon convention. All your input and advice is much appreciated. ;)
Equipment I plan on bringing
- MacBook Pro
- iPhone 3g
- Digital Camera
