Exploring The Invisible Internet

At Forrester's Security Forum 2011 in Miami, November 9-10, we will be reprising the wildly successful "Hackers Vs. Executives" track session. There will be two leading security professionals sitting on the panel representing the executive viewpoint, and they will be joined on stage by two noted researchers who will provide a hacker's-eye for this session. Rodney Joffe of Neustar will give us a live guided tour of the “Invisible Internet” – the IRC chat rooms and carder forums where the underground cybercrime economy lives.  Michael Hamelin of Tufin Technologies – a noted white hat hacker and multiple winner of the DefCon “Capture the Flag” competition – will do another demo to help us understand how attacks work. We will then turn to our panelist representing the executive viewpoint to start an interactive discussion about current and future threats and how best to understand them and protect against them.

Last year this session was packed. It was highly interactive with lots of provocative questions coming from the audience. I encourage you to join us in Miami, November 10th from 11:35 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. for this unique and informative presentation.
