Meet the Hacker
Every week we see hackers getting access to our information. We can have the best technology in the world but if our staff are not aware of how easy it is for hackers to access the system, we are doomed. This week the major banks in SA have been hacked and critical information has been accessed by scrupulous individuals. Tomorrow it could be you. Join APPETD in this one hour session where we will hear from The Cyber Academy and the work that they are doing preventing hacking in organisations. Hear true life accounts of how it’s done and how to prevent hacking in your business. The Cyber Academy has agreed to provide each attendee with free access to their Cyber Awareness short course that covers: Social Engineering; Physical Security; Malware and Ransomware; Personal Security; Mobile Security / The Internet of Things; Password Protection; Real Examples.
Meet the hacker: We cover (in less technical jargon) the basics of keeping information safe both within the company, and in your personal lives. Presented from the point of view of the “hacker”, we illustrate with examples, different exploits used in order to gain unauthorized access to resources. While heavily focused on Social engineering, it also covers many of the other vulnerabilities users present.
