Give me your data! - Dave Chronister (BSides Huntsville 2014) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Give me your data!
Dave Chronister

We hear new stories daily about a malicious hacker compromising the sensitive data of corporations, governments and individuals. But that is only half of the story. The genesis of this talk was from the idea that even today, data is still not stored securely. Ethical Hacker conducted a research project in which he wanted to find out if he could gain access to sensitive data. The catch? He would not hack any systems, all data must be collected legally. From buying devices on Facebook and bidding for Hard Drives on eBay, to monitoring public photo sharing sites; Dave will discuss the methods to retrieve the information. Dave will show his findings, some of which is very surprising.

Bio: Dave Chronister is the founder and Managing Partner of Ethical Hacking firm, Parameter Security. Growing up in the wild world of 1980’s BBSes and early Internet, Chronister obtained a unique firsthand look at the mind, motives, and methodologies of hackers. Chronister has provided ethical hacking services, auditing, forensics, and training to clients world-wide. Chronister’s expertise has been featured in many media outlets including; CNN, CNBC, CNN Headline News, ABC World News Tonight, Bloomburg TV, CBS, FOX Business News, Computer World, Popular Science, Information Security Magazine, St. Louis Post Dispatch, and St. Louis Business Journal, to name a few.
