How not to be hacked: an inside view...

Join us and spend a day with our ethical hackers to see first-hand how targets are identified, selected and attacked, and some of the things you can do to defend your key assets. Effective defensive strategies first need an understanding of the techniques used by attackers and that’s what this event is all about – learning from technical experts who will give you the insight to better prepare your organisation’s protection.

  • Phishing, smishing, and vishing
  • Breaching physical security
