The Effectiveness of Microsoft's EMET

  • Stephen Sims
  • Monday, May 18th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

In this talk we will take a look at Microsoft's Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) and how it stops exploits from working. This free tool has a low adoption rate inside of companies, but has the ability to stop 0-day attacks from being successful. We will cover the effectiveness of the various controls, how they work, as well as techniques used to bypass the tool in targeted attacks.
