Peter Wood, CEO, First Base Technologies LLP
Ethical hackers from First Base Technologies conduct red team tests to help organisations understand where they are vulnerable to advanced attacks. This presentation describes each step of a real-world exercise: planning and recon, spear phishing, telephone social engineering, building access, network exploitation and data exfiltration. As the story develops, you will discover how an attacker thinks, why they choose a particular strategy and what you can do to minimise your organisation’s vulnerability to advanced threats.
Peter is a world-renowned security evangelist, speaking at conferences and seminars on ethical hacking and social engineering. He has appeared in documentaries for BBC television, provided commentary on security issues for TV and radio and written many articles on a variety of security topics. Peter has worked in the electronics and computer industries for over forty-five years. He founded First Base Technologies in 1989, providing penetration testing and information security consultancy to major commercial and government clients.
