Off to Helsinki to learn how to be a hacker

I'm off to Helsinki for a couple of days next week with Stonesoft to learn how to be a hacker (kind of). Here's the itinerary so if you happen to be an editor, maybe there's something you might be interested in commissioning (hint, hint):

Brief introduction to The HACK THE LAB experience
Dive deep into hackers' minds and motives - 60-minute presentation on the latest global trends in hacking: nationalisation, industrialisation and hacktivism.

The HACK THE LAB experience starts
Introduction to hacker tools and techniques (30 min) - a hands-on, step-by-step guide to the most common current techniques - and how to mitigate risk and protect against them.

Let's hack! It's your turn. We have created three typical hacking scenarios to cover the typical motives of cyber-crime, hacktivism and advanced nation-state hacking. With real-life simulations and technical guidance you can experience how it feels to hack and to be hacked.

  1. E-crime: Hacking into a database to steal user account data and credit card information.
  2. Hacktivism: Spying and loss of privacy - hacking into personal computers to take total control.
  3. Nation state cyber-attack: Hacking into critical infrastructure to disturb the supply of utility services and demonstrate the potential effects on people and society.

After the Hack the Lab experience you can book one-on-one discussions with Stonesoft experts about the threat landscape, Advanced Evasion Techniques and any other IT security issues which are currently on your agenda.
