IT-Defense 2019Hacking and Hardening Hybrid Environment

Hacking and Hardening Hybrid Environment

Fully booked!

Security Tips from Expert who has access to a Source Code of Windows!

Instructors: Paula Januszkiewicz

Duration: 2 days

Everyone has heard about hackers. It is commonly known that their jobs differ from system administrator jobs. However, things they do in their darkened rooms are definitely interesting and worth knowing. Many of the techniques they use are very useful in everyday administration tasks. Is it that easy to get into systems? What about Windows and hybrid environments – are all of these security features preventing all of the attacks possible before? Well no! And we need to know how to implement features properly in order to be on a safe side!

Windows solutions and Azure are designed to protect against known and emerging security threats across the spectrum of attack vectors but this can be achieved only when configuring these settings properly! A Hackers' knowledge is considered to be valuable, both by system creators and common users. Administrators do not have to be taught how to be a hacker; it is often enough to show them one simple, but very interesting tool or technique, to change the point of view on their own IT environment. 

Topics covered in this seminar help you to walk in hacker's shoes and evaluate your network from their point of view. Be careful – this workshop is designed for IT and Security professionals who want to take their skills and knowledge to the next level. After this workshop, you will be familiar with hacker techniques, which can be useful to protect yourself against. This is a two days training with demos and reasonable and smart explanations.

Paula says: Pure coolness with a value! This training shows how to overuse mistakes that are made nowadays in the infrastructures. It is great to learn from other people’s mistakes, right?
