Most people associate hacking with dark rooms and shady characters. Live hacking is a different story. Here, security researchers demonstrate how a black hat hacker is able to exploit existing security vulnerabilities. The aim of this project is to make the public aware of how systems can be sabotaged and sensitive data can be spied on.
During live hacking, an expert sensitizes his audience to otherwise very abstract areas of IT security. After all, in IT, hacking is a permanent threat that affects all areas of business. Unlike a Black Hat, an Ethical Hacker does not exploit the vulnerabilities revealed. Rather, the aim is to increase general IT security, including cloud security.
Cyber attacks are now commonplace, although they can be kept to a minimum through targeted pentesting. Nevertheless, there are certain hacking attacks that occur again and again. We would be happy to work out an individual scenario for you.
Such a hacking event brings a clear advantage for companies: It helps to sensitize employees to the potential dangers. While regular training with regard to the General Data Protection Regulation is already mandatory, it is not very tangible. Especially for employees who do not work in the IT sector, cyber attacks are still too abstract a topic. Even when they have already been able to witness some attack simulations.
Our employees regularly publish articles on the subject of IT security
