HackerFest - Seminar


Zveme vás na Security Day* Ultimate Hacking and Forensics Experience for IT Pros, který proběhne 17. 9. 2019 pod vedením mezinárodně uznávané bezpečnostní expertky Pauly Januszkiewicz.
Security Day* není součástí HackerFestu. 

Are there any attacks that are effective, reliable and almost always work? Of course! Even though an organization manages well the infrastructure, patches are regularly installed, network is monitored – there are attacks that are still working perfectly as it is really a matter of misconfiguration rather than serious security vulnerability. Could cloud technologies help it? Are Office 365, Azure secure? How to measure it? Is it worth to move some of the services to the cloud and mitigate the risk of breach? The problem is that some infrastructure mechanisms relay on type of communication used within the attacks and they use it for the normal communication: single sign-on authentication, service accounts, network sharing etc. and in vast majority of organizations that can be leveraged! Join Paula during this seminar to become familiar what are the biggest mistakes in infrastructure security that from the attacker perspective can be pretty much always exploited and leave the conference with suggestions & ideas how to reach the next level of security in your workspaces.

Note: Security Day is seminar BYOD type (nothing pre-installed is needed, no virtual labs), students will have an opportunity to follow Paula’s live hacking demos and after the Security Day participants receive certificate and recognition from world renowned CQURE Academy. There is a recommendation to participants to have some knowledge of security concepts, such as operating system services and architecture. However, all required concepts will be covered throughout the Security Day.


Authors’ unique tools, presentation slides with notes, seminar instructions. Materials will be sent till the end of October 2019.


Target audience
Network administrators, infrastructure architects, security professionals, systems engineers, network administrators, IT professionals, security consultants and other people responsible for implementing network and perimeter security.


At the end participants will receive the online Certificate of attendance signed by the CQURE Speaker.
