3rd Party Data Burns

Arron Finnon

0 vote(s)

Data-Loss via 3rd party data-breaches is a subject that most have little time for, yet the impact of what has been lost in recent years is yet to be fully understood. From work related emails, to corporate passwords, its all out there. Billions and billions of individual pieces of data are floating around the internet, none of them really have any value individually but when put together and indexed they can become very costly.

This talk looks at the journey one can take to build a data-dump search-engine, that is fast, efficient and plentiful in results, and of course all the bumps along the way. It is so much more than just passwords, its a peak behind the curtain of what is really waiting for us in the next few years.

You'll walk away from this talk knowing what to expect from data-driven hacking attacks, and get an understanding for how dangerous this passive OSNIT enumeration can actually be.
