Below are a series of presentations I've given over the years, though not a fully inclusive list. Many are too sensitive (FOUO/LES/S/TS/SAP/EIEIO) to store, and others have been lost to digital decay. But, the remainder have been recovered and digitally remastered for your enjoyment.
Walking the Green Mile: How to Get Fired After a Security Incident:Abstract: Security incidents targeting corporations are occurring on a daily basis. While we may hear about the large cases in the news, network and security administrators from smaller organization quake in fear of losing their jobs after a successful attack of their network. Simple bad decisions and stupid mistakes in responding to a data breach or network intrusion are a great way to find yourself new employment. In this talk I'll show you in twelve easy steps how to do so after, or even during, a security incident in your company.

Intelligence Gathering Over Twitter:This was a basic-level presentation geared for a law enforcement audience. It taught the basics of how to use Twitter but also delved into specialized tools to collect and analyze large amounts of data, to help infer relationships and associations. This slide deck is slightly redacted, as much of the good stuff was given orally in the presentation.
Notable Venues: DoD Cyber Crime Conference
Information Gathering Over Twitter from Brian Baskin
P2P Forensics:Abstract: Years ago I began working on an in-depth protocol analysis talk about BitTorrent so that traffic could be monitored. This grew into a BitTorrent forensics talk which grew into an overall P2P Forensics talk. At one point, it was a large two-hour presentation that I had to gently trim down to an hour. Given at multiple venues, each was modified to meet that particular audience (administrators, criminal prosecutors, military).

Casual Cyber Crime:Abstract: We're living in an age of devices and applications that push the boundaries of dreams, an age of instant gratification, but also the age of Digital Rights Management and Copyright laws. With questionably illegal modifications becoming simple enough for children to use, where does the line get drawn between squeezing more functionality out of your digital devices and software and breaking felony laws? In this talk attendees will explore the justifications and rationales behind the use of questionable hardware and software modifications and understand the mentality behind why their use is rapidly catching on in the general population.
