G. Mark Hardy: How the West was Pwned SkyDogCon 2013 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

G. Mark Hardy: How the West was Pwned
SkyDogCon 2013

Can you hear it?  The giant sucking sound to the East?  With it are going more than just manufacturing jobs -- it's our manufacturing know how, intellectual property, military secrets, and just about anything you can think of.  If we're the most advanced technological nation on Earth, how are the People's Republic of China (PRC) and others able to continue to pull this off?  Why do we keep getting pwned at our own game?

There has been much talk about "cyberwar," but there may not be a war.  If a victor can extract tribute from the vanquished, war isn't necessary.  Today, intellectual capital is a proxy for tribute.  We'll look at some specifics, including who is compromising our enterprises and how they're doing it.  We'll also look as some of the geopolitics, and see if maybe it's true after all that God has a special providence for fools, drunks, and the United States of America.
