Inaugural meeting of the IISP in the East Midlands

Hosted by De Montfort University and Nexor

 

18th September  -  18:00-20:00  -  At De Montfort University

 

A talk will be given by Jay Abbott, Managing Director of Advanced Security Consulting Limited, and Chair of the Competitions Group Board for the UK Cyber Security Challenge.

 

Cyber Attacks & Live Hacks

This presentation brings home the simplicity of hacking and how it has become accessible to the general-public with limited knowledge and understanding of the tools and techniques. The presentation takes a non-technical audience on a journey through how the threat landscape has changed from sophisticated adversaries targeting major corporations to literally anyone with the slightest motivation and a home computer.

The presentation includes a live demonstration of the simplicity of hacking where every day mobile technologies are targeted for the user’s credentials. This attack brings home the simplicity and accessibility of the attacks as well as demonstrating the level of exposures mobile devices have.

Finally, the session goes on to provide a practical approach to thinking about security within your own personal and organisation perspectives, offering practical advice and logical methods of staying secure.

 

Following the presentation, there will be a networking opportunity – during this we will canvas opinion among the attendees of what you would like to get out of the East Midlands branch, and how to move it forward.
