GISEC Academy 1 [Workshops]   Hands-On Physical Security Essentials Synopsis: Organizations spend millions of dollars to keep their assets safe with physical access controls, but these are not without flaw. This course is designed to help you assess, strategize, and navigate your way through the complex world of physical access controls from small to large enterprise organizations.

Many organizations rely on a group of people, apart from Infosec, to make decisions about how to restrict access to facilities, assets, and critical operations. Unfortunately, the process for evaluating technology that is implemented at the door is often very different than how Infosec selects vendors, and the criteria for doing so it far less regulated. Electronic physical access technology is highly proprietary, and as a result, the technology functions quite differently than what Infosec professionals are used to, leaving many questions or blind spots in the security coverage.

Key Learning:

This course is all about understanding physical security from a holistic view and methods to defeat many popular access controls. In your journey to the controlled area, you need to access and defeat various hardware locks, access card readers, security sensors, and often the access cards—all of which we will cover and perform hands-on exercises. We will also discuss and demonstrate how blended technical and social engineering attacks can be utilized in defeating access controls. Laptops are not required for this course. Attendees will rotate through various ""stations"" with pre-configured equipment and tools to gain hands-on experience and sharpen their skills.

GISEC Academy 1 [Workshops]   Decoding different Shades of Phishing Attacks Synopsis: With an estimated 3.4 billion spam emails generated daily, phishing is the most prevalent type of cybercrime. The most frequent reason for data breaches is the use of stolen credentials. Internet users in the Millennial and Gen-Z generations are especially susceptible to phishing scams. Phishing is a form of cybercrime in which attackers send unsolicited emails with links to malicious websites or malware in an attempt to trick recipients into downloading it or visiting fake websites. The main method used by phishing attacks to target victims is email. Globally, there have been 16.5 compromised emails for every 100 internet users on average during the past three years. Cybercriminals can buy these compromised databases from dark web black markets and utilize the addresses for spearheading phishing attacks. What precisely constitutes a phishing attack will be illustrated through live demonstrations from the attacker's point of view, including automated bots, use of open relay servers, takeovers of Instagram, YouTube, and Gmail accounts, and other publicly available open source software. Our live demos will provide learners with the expertise to recognize and foil these digital deceptions by showcasing real-world examples.

Key Learning:

Participants will gain heightened awareness and practical skills to recognize and combat diverse phishing attacks. The session offers a comprehensive understanding of the evolving phishing landscape, incorporating real-world scenarios and live demonstrations to illustrate the methods employed by cybercriminals.
