CEO and Best-Selling Author, "The Trust Edge"

Trust is both a fundamental business issue and the biggest asset of a company. Without trust, companies lose reputations, relationships, and revenue. With trust, organizations enjoy greater creativity, productivity, and results. Through extensive research and experience, David Horsager learned what it takes to gain — and keep — the “Trust Edge.”

As a security executive, you know how many disparate pieces of information can together leave you vulnerable to hackers. Framed photos. Letters from family. Personal documents tucked away in a drawer. For 50 minutes, you’ll try on the black hat, assuming the role of a hacker trying to access an organization’s most sensitive data.

The catch—you only have 40 minutes to gather all the correct intel to gain access to the data, and you’re limited to the clues around the room.

In this session, be prepared to:

  • Hack a Facebook account using information left behind on employees’ desks
  • Identify which sensitive documents commonly found on employees’ desks can be used to access important accounts
  • Learn a new way to gamify insider threat training
