As you get ready for Black Hat Asia in Singapore next month, organizers want to ensure you don’t miss out on some of the Briefings and Trainings for cybersecurity professionals concerned about the most pressing threats of 2019.
Most notably, veteran cybersecurity expert Mikko Hyppönen will be at the show this year to present the keynote Briefing on “The Next Arms Race.” You’ll want to see Hyppönen examine how many countries are investing in offensive cyberpower; he’ll give you an eye-opening look at the very beginning of a new arms race.
For more intense hands-on training to prepare for today’s cybersecurity challenges, check out the “Tactical OSINT For Pentesters” 2-Day Training. You’ll learn how to use OSINT (Open-Source Intelligence, collected from publicly-available sources) data along with the significance of this data, and how it can be enriched and used offensively for attacking and compromising modern digital infrastructures.
Those who sign up for this Training will be given a framework to manage and prioritize all the data collected during the course along with private lab access good for one month so you can practice skills learned during the training.
“Pentesting Industrial Control Systems” is another fantastic 2-Day Training that offers a similar degree of practical, hands-on training in how to find and exploit vulnerabilities in industrial control systems. Sign up for this Training and you’ll learn everything you need to start ICS pentesting, from the basics of ICS vulnerabilities to the ins and outs of exploiting Windows & Active Directory weaknesses to take control of ICS systems, most of which rely on Windows.
The Training will end with a challenging hands-on capture the flag exercise: the first CTF in which you capture a real flag! Using your newly-acquired skills, you’ll try to compromise a Windows Active Directory, pivot to an ICS setup, and take control of a model train and robotic arms.
Finally, close out your time at Black Hat Asia 2019 with “Locknote: Conclusions and Key Takeaways from Black Hat Asia 2019,” the perennially popular end-of-show Briefing that Black Hat founder Jeff Moss uses to close out the event. It features a candid discussion between Moss and members of the Black Hat Review Board, which is a great opportunity to catch up on all the key takeaways of the show and get a condensed overview of what to expect in the year ahead. Don’t miss it!
Black Hat Asia returns to the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore March 26-29, 2019. For more information on what’s happening at the event and how to register, check out the Black Hat website.
