Thinking Like a Cyber Criminal

When:  Oct 12, 2021 from 11:30 to 12:30 (ET)
Associated with  New England Chapter
We read about hacks and breaches on a daily basis, but what do we actually know about these cybercrime groups and how they conduct these attacks? In this session, we will dive into basic hacking techniques, demonstrate what types of tools hackers are using today, examine the scope of these attacks, and discuss best practices on how to protect ourselves and our businesses. The session will include multiple OSINT demos as well as security framework utilization. It is only once you understand how the attacker operates that you can defend forward against these attacks
