0-Day: A Virtual Hands-On Hacking Training Lab

October 25, 2021 | 12pm4pm ET

Optional Session

Cost: $99 USD

When two opposing sides face off, each has its own offensive and defensive tactics in play. The former usually focuses on exploiting your opponent’s weaknesses, while the latter is designed to protect your interests.

As the good guys in the cybersecurity world, we often find ourselves playing defense and reacting to the moves of our opponents... but what if we could bring a bit more offense to the table?

In this half-day session, we’ll dig into both sides of the cybersecurity game. Join us and discover whether defense can actually win championships—or if the best defense is in fact a great offense.

For hack_it 2021.2, we are introducing new content in a modernized virtual environment and updated tactics, techniques and tradecraft.

1:00pm - 2:20pm ET: Offense Part 1: Making Hackers Earn Their Access

Cast Your Own Phishnet: Macro Malware Campaigns

Team members and personnel know now to hover over the link in an email, or to look for the HTTPS or an official domain so they aren’t a victim of spear phishing… but are those cheesy tricks all that the hackers have up their sleeves? 

In this technical session, we will walk through not only how you can prepare your own internal phishing exercise but how you can cook up some mean macro-enabled malware and phish like the pros. This demo-driven presentation—and knowing that a strong offense is the best defense—will show just how hackers trick your IT staff with the ol’ hook, line and sinker!
