Ethical Hacking is the best way to find vulnerabilities the way real hackers do: by using their tools and processes. This session explores how hackers work and how they begin their attacks through careful planning. You'll learn how a hacker decides your assets are hack-worthy and how they begin to attack your systems without sending you a single packet. You'll also see how hackers build a network map of your enterprise… just like your own IT department does but for planning and attacking your systems. This session will include demonstrations of live hacking including social media scanning and external network footprinting. On the ethical side, you'll learn the legality of these techniques and where to draw the line between IT professional and criminal. This session ends with discussion and demonstration of hacking a mobile phone… whether it's iOS or Android, you'll have to attend to find out!
At the end of this session an attendee will be able to:
Apply hacker techniques to examine a network
Determine and prioritize optimal targets for hacking
Select the most appropriate attack for a given asset
Create and implement an attack plan using hacker methodologies
Adhere to boundaries for legal and ethical activities
