nsec - Offensive Cloud Security

Event date 27 May 2021 – 28 May 2021

Join NCC Group’s Xavier Garceau-Aranda, managing security consultant, at his training session on offensive cloud security for nsec on 27 and 28 May.

While security awareness and collective experience regarding the Cloud has been steadily improving, one common difficulty is applying theoretical knowledge to real-life scenarios. This training’s goal is to help attendees bridge this gap by understanding how conventional technologies integrate with Cloud solutions. The training is scenario-based and focuses on applied exercises. Attendees will experience first-hand how security vectors that exist in such ecosystems present opportunities for abuse. Throughout the training, we will also cover detection and mitigation of the attacks covered in the course.

The training is structured as a sequence of scenarios, which mix theory and practical exercises. The theory is imparted gradually, and attendees are given time to think for themselves and work through the exercises.

Xavier is a managing security consultant at NCC Group, with experience in both academia and the private sector. He has worked as a developer, security researcher and consultant. Xavier currently spends most of his time focusing on application and cloud security, as well as driving the development of Scout Suite (, an open source multi-cloud security-auditing tool.

Xavier holds the AWS Certified Security – Specialty, Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP), Offensive Security Certified Expert (OSCE) and Offensive Security Wireless Professional (OSWP) certifications.
