Advanced Phishing Tactics Beyond User Awareness SkyDogCon 2012 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Advanced Phishing Tactics Beyond User Awareness
SkyDogCon 2012

 Martin Bos & Eric Milam

Over the past 10 years, organizations have spent time, resources and considerable financial investments to protect their external perimeter from potential information security threats. Most advanced threat agents know if and when they bypass the hardened perimeter, successfully compromising assets within the internal environment is trivial, with very few controls in place to stop a focused and motivated intruder.

This talk will discuss why spear phishing penetration testing is a necessary exercise for all organizations. We will walkthrough and demonstrate live our methodology that has proven extremely effective on numerous engagements. We will also focus on why advanced techniques should be used to assess internal user environments as a whole and that approaching a social engineering exercise as a user awareness exercise is not beneficial for an enterprise.

Eric is a senior security assessor on the Accuvant LABS enterprise assessment team with over fourteen (14) years of experience in information technology. Eric has performed innumerable consultative engagements including enterprise security and risk assessments, perimeter penetration testing, vulnerability assessments, social engineering, physical security testing, wireless assessments and extensive experience in PCI compliance controls and assessments. Eric is a project steward for the Ettercap project as well as creator and developer of the easy-creds and smbexec projects.
