RF hacking basics & how to use your cool gadgets
Ever wondered why your internet always cuts off just before dinner time or how your Flipper is able to open garage doors?
Radios are everywhere, and RF technology is applied in places that you might not even have thought of, and this usage is only going to grow. Come learn how basic Radio technology works, what you can transmit and receive, as well as the legalities you need to keep in mind before blasting the entire CBD with RF interference (hint: don't).
As a bonus, you'll learn to use a whole bunch of cool gadgets that you may have to dig up out of the bottom of your drawer or even inspire your next revolutionary project idea! I'll be doing a couple of live demos with the Flipper Zero and an SDR.

Hi, I'm Amy - I'm currently the Security Engineer at Cydarm, an incident response startup, working closely with a broad range of teams to develop the core platform. By night, I am an Assistant Lecturer at Sydney University teaching an intensive 26-week cybersecurity bootcamp to educate newcomers and re-skill professionals transitioning into the cybersecurity industry.
I come from a very strong background in SIEM/SOARs (specialising in Splunk), development in a variety of programming languages and applications and fluency in the Japanese language. I regularly apply these skills on personal projects and contributing to the Security community, including hosting workshops, volunteering at events and building out CTF platforms and scenarios.
