The Red Pill. Become Aware: Squashing Security Misconceptions and More.

  • My-Ngoc Nguyen
  • Wednesday, January 31st, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

"You take the blue pill, the story ends. You wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes." -Morpheus, to Neo [src]

Take the red pill, come join us down this rabbit hole, and get your head out of the sand to better protect yourself, your company/organization, and the things that matter to you (e.g. your loved ones, your finances, your identity). In this presentation, you will get insights into common misconceptions and trends that led to many breaches, especially those that were headlined. We'll touch on some details from those headlined breaches to show commonalities, address the main misconceptions, describe attackers' approaches, provide some statistics, and most importantly, provide helpful tips applicable to all members of the audience.
