Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 Power Edition (How to)

I recently got a Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 Power Edition and I had a few issues with setting things up and running. After researching on the Internet many others had similar issues and a number of opinions and solutions were being suggest but without definitive answers. 
Due to the fact I had to spend a lot of time trying to find out who is right and who is wrong on the forums, I decided to make this non-security related blog-post because I believe it will really help a lot of people when it comes to that particular drone.

IP EXPO EUROPE 2016 (..and winning a drone)

I had the opportunity to be at IP EXPO last week, in London. For those of you who are not familiar with the event, IP EXPO Europe took place at ExCel London (5-6 October 2016). 

The interesting fact about IP Expo is that you can find vendors and services across the whole spectrum related to IT. More specifically, under one roof you will find anything you need related to Cloud and Cloud services, Cyber Security, network and infrastructure solutions, data analytics, DevOps, and Open Source

Compared to InfoSecurity Europe, it is a smaller event but this ended up being good. The exhibitors had a standard booth size allocation and it was much easier to get around, talk to people and faster to find what you were looking for. Maybe it made more sense this particular layout to my OCD I guess

Towards a Cyber Resilience strategy (Cyber Security Awareness Month – Oct 2016)

As most of you already know, October is Cyber Security awareness month. The aim of the Cyber Security awareness month is to raise awareness across the international community about cyber threats, discuss best practices, and educate the public and private sector, on how to stay safe online.

Cyber Security is promoted extensively during this month and many events are being organized with the sole purpose to engage and educate public and private sector entities, while provide them with the necessary tools and resource to stay safe when connected online. Given the opportunity let’s talk about the UK’s Cyber Security Clusters and how you could get to engage, participate, network and most importantly ask any questions that you currently have regarding your organizations cyber security posture and staying safe online.

New laptop with a noisy (annoying) fan

I will keep this short. If you bought a new laptop and the manufacturer did not make sure the fan is completely silent (and you really want to punch them in the face because it is not 1998) then I suggest you download this little utility before you start breaking things around the house. 

(at the time of writing this blog post the version of the utility was 1.4.2)

Hope this helps but make sure you keep an eye on your temperatures via an utility like HWmonitor to make sure the cooling still works properly.
