CSI and Blackhat Scorpions: From Hollywood to Keyboard
- Robert M. Lee, Instructor, SANS Institute
- Thursday, July 9th, 6:00pm - 7:00pm
With movies like Blackhat and shows like CSI: Cyber and Scorpion, reality often gets hyped up for a bit of good Hollywood effect; but sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. This past year there have been a number of high-profile intrusions impacting almost every identifiable sector, from aviation to banking to healthcare. These intrusions have showed creativity, shocked the public, and presented a challenge for forensic analysts in different fields. This talk will take a look at some of the most interesting intrusions faced this past year, where digital forensics excelled, and what we as a community learned - all in the theme of lighthearted Hollywood flair.
