EC-Council’s #Hacker Halted #Conference Shines a Light on #Cyber Warfare

Hacker Halted, EC-Council’s largest annual information security, attracted over 1,200 attendees to hear from the world’s foremost security experts. The event began with a Kung Fu style dance routine presented by Atlanta Chinese Dance Academy. After the acrobatic dancers, Jay Bavisi, EC-Council’s President, addressed the record-breaking crowd with his keynote entitled “From Hackers to Professionals: The Evolutions of an Industry.” Bavisi’s talk also unveiled the new EC-Council penetration testing certification program, LPT (Master).

Next, the audience was treated to the “Hackers, The Media, Truth, Trust, and Alternative Facts” debate moderated by Winn Shwartau, Founder of The Security Awareness Company with panelists Gregory Carpenter, COO of Pragmatick IO, Inc. and Hollywood Producer Michael Masucci. The debate included lively exchanges on the important issues surrounding the responsibilities of law enforcement, privacy concerns of citizens, corporate security programs, and the hacker perspective on where the nature and importance of truth.

For those hackers looking to test their skills, there was a Capture the Flag game presented by Core Security running throughout the two days of the conference where competitors scored points for penetrating the game’s defenses. Along that same theme, there was also a lock picking exhibition run by Augusta Locksports where attendees’ physical security skills were put to the test.

A special addition to this year’s event was IBM’s sponsorship of women’s entrance fees to attend the conference. The sponsorship covered 460 women’s tickets, leading to improved representation of women at the event.

The two days of speakers included luminaries in the hacking community, including Chris Roberts, Chief Security Architect of Acalvio Technologies, presenting his talk entitled “Leave your zero days at the door, leave your latest hacks behind, AND bring your playbook for the blue team” to a packed room. Another draw was Georgia Weidman, Founder and CTO of Shevirah. Weidman delivered a stellar talk on “Bypassing iOS Security Using Enterprise Provisioning Hooks.”

The first day concluded with a happy hour and hiring fair, sponsored by CyberSec Jobs, which included another appearance by the Atlanta Chinese Dance Academy Dancers.

On the second day, Derl Heiland, Research Lead (IOT) for Rapid7, keynoted with his talk entitled “IoT Security – Executing an Effective Security Testing Process.”

Conference-goers kept track of sessions and interacted with each other using the Hacker Halted app. They also used the app to rate each speaker and ask questions to the group. Over 400 attendees used the app while at the conference, helping make new comers and Hacker Halted veterans alike feel welcome and connected.

The theme for next year’s event, September 13 – 14, 2018 in Atlanta, GA; has already been announced and will be “The Ethical Hacker’s Guide to the Galaxy: Life, the Universe, Everything … Hacked.” Registration is now open for the 2018 event.
