SNOHOMISH, WA – Cyemptive Technologies, an award-winning provider of cybersecurity solutions including American Security Today (AST’s) Homeland Security Platinum Award for Best Anti-Malware Solution, today announced it will host a webinar on “Hardware Attacks: from the sublime to the ridiculous!”, a live discussion on the dangers of “attack” hardware devices and how to protect against them, on Wednesday, May 25, at 11 am Pacific Standard Time.
The webinar will feature Cyemptive Chief Forensics Officer Adrian Santangelo and Cyemptive Chief Compliance Officer Gerges Hana, as they host a live discussion with Mike Grover, Founder of Offensive Mischief Gadgets (O.MG), and Marcel Lange, Penetration Tester & Red Team Operator from Exploit Labs.
Among the topics the webinar will cover include:
- How hardware attacks can be more damaging than software cyber-attacks, as they can be difficult to detect and are often more trusted in a computing environment.
- How cables, USB devices, micro-drives, single-board computers, and other simple computer hardware accessories present a security threat by being converted or created into malicious attack hardware, where keystrokes, low-level firmware, and credentials can be at risk.
- How to utilize and defend against hardware attacks that stress the vulnerabilities in a network.
- Why creating an attack is easier than one may think.
“This webinar is designed to help people understand the dangers and pitfalls of hardware attacks, and to protect against them,” said Santangelo. “Creating an attack using hardware is easier than many think, and the scope of what is possible with hardware attacks can be shocking.”
The webinar is free of charge. To register, click here.
