Event Details

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.
