Event Details

Session Overview:

We live in a world where information is freely and widely available online. Since the internet was born, hackers used it to share their knowledge and tactics with each other or even with anyone who would like to learn hacking!

Today, we have tons of articles on how to hack, programs that help adversaries create their own virus to take control over your computers, YouTube videos that help them learn what exactly to do to take over your account (whether it may be a bank account, email or social media), all available online. Adversaries can even purchase hacking gadgets online and have them delivered to their home. Adversaries can go to the extent of hacking people who work in charitable organizations to steal money that was meant to go to a cause! Learning how to hack has become so easy that a 12 year old can do it, even against a secure company.

Unfortunately, as the adversarial hacking community grows, their victims (the families and hard working individuals) tend to remain unaware of the threats that they might be subject to and cannot identify the red flags that they are being targeted.

Security awareness courses are expensive and commonly available for companies and corporations. We think that the individual has the right to learn how to protect themselves against hackers. We should educate ourselves against getting hacked, cause if we don’t, hackers are educating themselves to hack us.

This session will follow a “know your enemy” approach, where we explain and demonstrate different hacking techniques in layman's terms. This would help the individual identify the red flags and be able to notice potential malicious activities and that they’re being targeted.

The Agenda:

  • Why do you need to understand how hackers work?
  • How can you educate yourself to protect against hackers?
  • Some common hacking tactics:
  • How hackers steal your password
  • How hackers make you pay for ransom
  • How hackers target you via email
  • How hackers can physically break into your computer
  • How a 12-year-old can take over your computer, spy on you, switch on your camera and more
  • Sometimes it's not your fault to get hacked:
  • Hacking the cloud (iCloud, DropBox, Google Drive ....etc)
  • Here's how hackers can rob a bank from the comfort of their own home!!
  • Here's how hackers can stalk you and your family
  • Topics for next session
  • Final words
