Hacking 101

During this course attendees will learn basic principles as well as common and more advanced tricks to break modern security mechanisms. The subjects of this workshop cover network security, low level software exploitation, reverse engineering, web application mocking and more.


Attendees will learn to think and act with the mindset of an attacker. Understanding their routine, tools and procedures will enable you to gain a novel outside perspective onto your current setups and deployments. With this knowledge, you will find yourself capable of locating and addressing the most pressing threats faster and more efficiently.
