SEE LIVE (Atlanta):How Hackers Attack and How to Fight Back

Cyber Security Atlanta

Where: The Keynote Theatre, Georgia World Congress Center

When: October 17-18, 2018

Keynote Speaker: Kevin Mitnick

It takes one to know one.

People are the weakest link. They can be manipulated or influenced into unknowingly helping hackers break into their organization’s computers. You’ll learn how easily you can be an unsuspecting victim who can be manipulated into handing over the keys the kingdom, if you haven’t done so already. In this engaging and demonstration-rich experience, Kevin Mitnick illustrates how a hacker’s thought process works and how they ply their tradecraft. You just might realize that you—like almost everyone else on the planet—have a misplaced reliance on security technology, which has now become ineffective against a motivated hacker using a technique called "social engineering."

Kevin is uniquely qualified to take you inside the mind of a hacker, as it takes one to know one. He was once the FBI’s Most Wanted, although he never stole for profit or damaged systems. He is the most elusive computer break-in artist in history because he hacked into the NSA and more than 40 major corporations just for the fun and adventure.  Kevin is `now a trusted security consultant to Fortune 500 companies and governments worldwide, and he leads the world’s top security penetration testing team and they maintains a 100 percent successful track record of being able to penetrate the security of any system they are paid to hack into using a combination of technical exploits and social engineering. 

Kevin is the worldwide authority on social engineering and constantly improves and updates this highly effective and acclaimed "security awareness" presentation that illustrates the latest threats and risks most people don’t even know exist.

What you will take away from the session:

You’ll learn how to detect manipulation and take steps to protect yourself and your organization. Gain the power to think defensively.
