Sponsored Speaking Session:

Better Than Mr. Robot
Who: Charles Henderson, Global Head, X-Force Red at IBM and Steve Ocepek, Regional Lead of North America, X-Force Red at IBM
When: Thursday, July 27 | 11:00 a.m. – 11:50 a.m.
Where: Business Hall Theater B
What: Most people don’t have movies and TV shows made about their jobs. X-Force Red does. X-Force Red is IBM’s elite team of what the security industry calls penetration testers but most people call them hackers. It’s a common misunderstanding that “hacker” refers to a computer criminal. Our team attacks networks and applications from technologies such as cloud, mobile, IoT, and just about anything else before the bad guys. In many ways, penetration testing is more challenging than what criminals do. Criminals only need to find one way in, but X-Force Red testers aim to find all the flaws in their target, then help the client fix them. Come to this session to hear some real-world stories of legal hacking… some funny, some scary.
