TITLE: "Social Media Hacked – Analyzing the Art of the Attack”

SPEAKER: Scott A. Wells, Ph.D.

DESCRIPTION: Studies done by McAfee, Norton, and Gartner indicate that social networking is among the biggest threats to information security, and will continue to be a major threat for years to come. With a network like Facebook, which boasts more than 1 billion users globally, hackers are focused on accessing the wealth of information that users often voluntarily disclose about themselves and their organizations. Social media is also the preferred platform for spreading malware and launching phishing and evil twin attacks to access sensitive information. In a recent study by McAfee, half of organizations surveyed admitted to a security scare resulting from social media. While most IT professionals are aware of the dangers of social media usage, only about a third of corporations have a breach prevention and response strategy in place.
This technology presentation explores privacy assaults, data leakage and identity theft challenges via access-point spoofing and session hijacking as organizations continue their heavy use of social media. Dr. Wells delves into the attack surfaces exposed by social media and examines social engineering vectors as well as the technical vectors in breaching the security layers of the popular social media platforms.
Through an analysis of well publicized Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn attacks, Dr. Wells will illustrate the techniques used by hackers and the appropriate countermeasures that need to be implemented to reduce the risk of compromise.
This presentation includes live hacking demonstrations as a proof of concept.
