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

November 14 | 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 2022, we are introducing new content in a modernized virtual environment and updated tactics, techniques and tradecraft.

Whose Crime Is It Anyway?

Hollywood has glorified the cliche hacker stereotype; but what does a modern cybercriminal really look like? Is there a mastermind underneath the hoodie, or a person you would never expect?

Strap in for an interactive session where we’ll pull back the curtain on today’s threats, look at some real-life recent attacks and discuss what dangers your business faces. With a “game-show” take on our adversaries, this session is jam-packed with education accessible to any member of your team.

0% Chance of 100% Coverage

Buzzwords are designed to grab your attention, but some can be harmful when overused. In this live group discussion, our panelists share their hot takes on the latest trends and industry shills. Is “Zero Trust” all that it’s cracked up to be?

Will “artificial intelligence” stop all unknown threats? We’ll seek to reclaim the sales and marketing conversation for the community to help you navigate the slew of sales pitches and hold the industry accountable.

Hacking Hijinks & DLL Hijacks

For the hack_it finale, we get our hands dirty with recent vulnerabilities discovered in RMM tools—and fair warning, we’ll be pushing the envelope to find even more flaws!

Join us for a hands-on session cutting through code and building payloads to compromise an endpoint. You will learn the process of hunting for DLL hijacking bugs, and gain new resources to aid your own security research.

Are You Smarter Than a Script Kiddie?

What goes on inside the mind of a malware author? Who is hiding behind their hacker handle?

Filled to the brim with audience participation, this interactive session will get you and your whole team guessing how cybercriminals do what they do—and if you really know your enemy.

Sideloading Cybercrime with DLLs

In this technical, hands-on session, you will learn the process of hunting for DLL sideloading vulnerabilities and their impact. Put to the test, we will validate vulnerabilities and exploits recently found in modern RMM tools, and develop our own payload to escalate our privileges and compromise the target.
