No matter how much organisations spend on security products, they are still vulnerable to targeted attacks. Why does this happen? It’s because most organisations don’t know how to look for real-world vulnerabilities. It’s time we learned how to build our defences using our imagination as well as technology; to examine and test our systems, buildings and people as though we were a criminal, not the developer or the architect. Criminals use technical, physical and human attacks to achieve their goals - unless we understand these attacks we will continue to be the victim. This presentation will show you how Pete and his team conduct real attacks that invariably succeed and offer ideas for defending against them effectively. Be prepared to laugh, cry and perhaps learn something!
