EH-Net Live! Sept 2018 - Basics of IoT Hacking for the Career Pen Tester - Sept 27, 2018

IoT is not only a hot buzzword, but the sheer number of devices shows that it’s living up to the hype. The benefits can be a game changer for any organization. But at the pace with which the technology is being adopted, we as security professionals know all too well what happens when speed to market is the highest priority. As Trinity said, “You have been down there, Neo. You know that road. You know exactly where it ends. And I know that’s not where you want to be.” On the other hand, this gives us a huge opportunity in the field of IoT security research and bug hunting.

IoT devices are beautiful not only because of their capabilities in such a small package, but also because they are a wonderful merging of several technologies. But with each new added feature, the attack surface gets that much bigger. And anywhere there’s a way in for an attacker, there’s also a paying gig for a security professional… before, during and after a product is released.

Join the experts from Independent Security Evaluators (ISE), the people that bring you IoT Village at DEF CON, DerbyCon, RSA and many others, as they guide you through the inner workings of this great field of ethical hacking with a live demo, discussing career paths, and additional resources to keep you educated in this rapidly changing industry. From those in the maker movement to InfoSec professionals, IoT hacking isn’t just a fun skill, but a lucrative one!

    Hi, this was an awesome presentation. I missed the first 30 minutes but I stayed until the end. The presenter, Jake, was very generous with his time and information presented. Thank you!

      Good thing you missed the beginning. We had a video issue, so you only hear me talking. But it was straightened out after about 8 minutes. D’oh!!

      We’ll fix it in post. 😉

    Great Webinar.
    How many CPE credits are earned with this webinar?

    • #169368
       Don Donzal 

      Depends on where you’re applying them. As an example, ISC2 asks for number of hours. The webinar and Q&A went 2 hours. Phew! 😉 So just follow the instructions on what type of CPE it is, and punch in the hours.
