The Hacker Playbook: How to think and act like a cybercriminal to reduce risk
Presenter: Paula Januszkiewicz, Microsoft MVP | Technical level: 300
Successful attack prevention strategies quite often lack proper implementation. We hear, “We do pen-tests twice a year! How can it be that we were hacked?!” The reasons include time, resources, politics…the list goes on. The basics of security management remain the same; the process must be well designed, tools easy to implement, and somebody must be directly responsible for it. Some of the best strategies we’ve seen is to rely on experience and learn from actual hacks! Join this pre-day session to learn how to identify vulnerabilities, strengthen your systems, and stop the data breaches that litter the news sites today. Learn about the latest threats and solutions—including the newest security features of Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.
