A whole lot of Spiders at DEF CON 19

Next week members of Trustwave's SpiderLabs team will be headed to Las Vegas to attend DEF CON 19. Members of the team from every corner of the planet will be attendance.

We are fortunate this year to have 15 members of our team presenting between the main talks, workshop, and even DEF CON Kids. Below is a list of the talks along with links to the DEF CON website so you can read more about the talks and hopefully decide to atttend some of them.
