Why Hackers Still Get In

Cyber Hack Theatre

Thu 19th Oct 11:00 to 12:00

In this session, Trevor O’Donnal demonstrates the tools and techniques hackers use to defeat the expensive security safeguards used in many corporate environments today. Low tech and high tech methods will be presented in an effort to help attendees understand the true level of risk faced by their organizations and where the gaps may be in their defense perimeter. Topics discussed will include well-known attack vectors such as phishing and social engineering, but will also cover topics that may be less well known such as the ‘SMB Shakedown’, USB attacks, payload encoding, and the leveraging of common system misconfigurations.
