If You Can’t Trust the Phone Company: A Mock Trial

Posted on in Presentations

A confluence of errors—the carrier clones a SMS-token phone; a doctor’s password is compromised; a vulnerability is exposed only to authenticated users of a medical laboratory; ransomware blocks access to critical test results; the ransom is paid but in the turmoil an unnoticed exfiltration of medical records reveals the dire medical condition of a corporate titan. Millions are lost. Whose fault?

Pre-Requisites: General familiarity with authentication technologies, web services vulnerabilities, ransomeware, and data breach is useful but explanatory material on the technology will be presented to the presiding judge. These explanations will be tutorial in nature. No programming or design skills needed.
This session will participate in polling. To participate please be sure to download the RSA Conference app prior to the session.
