The Creation of a Hacker

Mar 15, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

Younger, less technical individuals are the new face of cyber crime. Through a live demonstration, this session dives into the relatively unexplored world of gaming and showcases the growing role it’s playing in luring younger individuals to get involved in cyber crime as a service. Adam explores the emerging business models within the dark web and the consequences for the misrepresentation of hackers in mainstream media. Recent case studies shine light on the evolving cyber criminal identity and participants will walk away with new critical insights to mitigate risk at both the individual and organizational levels.
