Much in the same way that to secure a house it helps to know how to break in, knowing how to attack our systems will help us secure them. You have a lot of data in your organisations. Whether you think it's sensitive or not, it has value. Whether an attacker wants data for profit, a grudge, or just for fun we need to ensure that we don't just leave the door open for them to take what they want.

In this session we'll start to think like a hacker. The what, why, who, where and how of an attacking mindset will leave you with practical steps you can take away and use to start protecting your systems a little better.

What will the audience learn from this talk?
The audience will learn the things an attacker thinks through when looking at a system. "What do I want? Why do I want it? Who has it? Where is it? How do I get it?"

Does it feature code examples and/or live coding?
There may be some basic code examples - and no live coding
