In what promises to be an interesting evening, Owen is going to talk to us
about the anatomy of an attack:


*Stories of organisations getting hacked are becoming so frequent that it
would be easy to believe that there’s no real way to avoid being the next
target. I will outline what we know, what incident data tells us and what
the typical motive is behind these hacks. Furthermore, I will walk you
through the three stages of an attack (footprinting, scanning and
exploitation) and discuss some recent hacks and what we can learn from
them. *
