Upcoming Events

Integrating LOL Binaries with LimaCharlie When: December 13, 2023 @ 10:00am PT

We have an upcoming episode of our Loud & Clear webinar and training series. These events are directed at helping folks understand how to utilize some of the key features and capabilities of the LimaCharlie platform. In our December 2023 episode, we’ll look how ways to integrate Living-Off-the-Land, or “LOL”, data in LimaCharlie. LOL binaries are native applications that adversaries like to hide behind, hoping their activity will blend in with other system noise. We will examine some of the top LOL uses across Windows, Linux, and Mac, as well as how to detect this activity in LimaCharlie.

Register for the webinar, live on December 13, 2023. Also, come join us in the LimaCharlie community Slack to join the discussion and get real-time feedback from the LimaCharlie team. We hope to see you there!

Cybersecurity Cares Telethon When: December 15, 2023 @ 6:00am - 6:00pm PT

Each year, the team at LimaCharlie works to rally the cybersecurity community to raise funds for people in need through an initiative called Cybersecurity Cares. This year, we are helping in the fight to end domestic violence by driving donations to Becky’s Fund. So far this year we have raised USD $13,680 and with your help, we can do much more. To wrap up our fundraising efforts, on December 15th, we will be hosting an all-day, live-stream telethon, and we would love for you to join us. The telethon will be aired on LinkedIn and YouTube. You can sign up here to get notified.

Join us every Friday as we delve into the dynamic world of information security, exploring its defensive side with seasoned professionals from across the industry.
