Secure Data Erasure and Wireless Security WEBINAR

Wednesday 3rd October, 2018 1:00 pm – Wednesday 3rd October, 2018 2:00 pm

At your desk, Delivered Live Online

When it comes to exposure of personal data, people tend to imagine Vitamin D-deficient cybercriminals flogging bank details hacked from someone’s account. However, each day, people sell or disclose their most personal information for minimal economic gain. Dr Patryk Szewczyk will discuss a 5 year project based on purchasing and forensically examining second hand storage devices. In this talk, Patryk will highlight the types of data recovered and the poor cyber security practices end-users are engaging in. In the second half of the session, Patryk will conduct a presentation, showing how thousands of Perth users connected to his experimental Wi-Fi network, and undertook confidential online transactions – disregarding the lack of security or explicit warnings that were in place.
