Introduction to Cyber Security and Cyber Crime : Understanding the cyber threats from criminals, hacktivists, terrorists and spies
This training session will provide security professionals, police investigators, intelligence analysts, incident responders and managers a strategic understanding of the cyber threat landscape across the spectrums of actors, from hacktivists and terrorists to cyber spies and criminals. The participants will learn through a series of case studies the various cyber attacks that have targeted critical infrastructures sectors, such as government, transportation, finance, water and energy. An overview of recent “hacks” against cell phones, cars, airplanes, traffic lights, physical access control (i.e. RFID cards), building HVAC systems, waste-water treatment, pipelines, and the electrical grid will be reviewed. The trainer will also provide insight into different threat actors, which will help to identify what type of threat that an organization might be facing. Finally, the participants will work through a series of exercises to learn how to identify forged emails, phishing sites and targeted attacks.
