Monday, July 26, 2021 - 1:00 PM UTC, for 8 hours.

Workshop (pre-conference)

Room: 1


The vast majority of cyber attacks are relatively easy to defend – yet most applications and networks remain vulnerable. In fact many developers aren’t even aware of how simple these attacks are to execute. Spoiler alert: it’s really, really easy. During this day-long workshop we’ll learn a variety of concepts and tools enabling us to hack our way into vulnerable HackTheBox machines. We’ll cover a variety of approaches for exploiting vulnerabilities we encounter: everything from SQL injections to password cracking, and we'll attack both Windows and Linux machines. Be prepared to learn, laugh and cry as we explore common security flaws. You’ll leave this workshop with hands-on experience in penetration testing methodology, a deep understanding of the current OWASP best practices, and a broad appreciation for cybersecurity professionals. If you can’t protect your applications from hackers, who will?
