Context will once again be sponsors and exhibiting at CYBERUK 2018.
Dan Cater, Lead Security Consultant at Context, will be presenting his talk 'Hacking an ISP's home router from the web' on Day 1 in Track 1 from 17:00 - 17:40 in the Exchange Auditorium. This talk demonstrates how a remote attacker can compromise this ISP-provided router using web-based methods only - no screwdrivers or soldering irons required. Multiple vulnerabilities are chained together to compromise the router, leading to subsequent attacks such as being able to connect to the customer’s Wi-Fi, hijack their DNS results, or read their sensitive files from an attached USB memory stick.
Andrew Scott, Regional Assurance Lead for Scotland at Context, will be presenting his talk 'Penetration Testing - Checking Controls Not Systems' from 12:25 - 13:00 on Day 2 of Cyber UK In Practice. Maturing penetration testing from a tick box or gateway inspection in a product life cycle to using it to inform strategic development of controls and their improvement plans. While each vulnerability identified in a Penetration test needs to be dealt with on its own merits, an astute information security leader can amalgamate data from a collection of tests to identify controls that are not as effective as they could be to focus improvement efforts on. Join Andrew to look at how.
