“Hacking 5G Security” – Super Cyber Friday

Hacking 5G Security - Super Cyber Friday

Please join us on Friday, July 21st, 2023 for Super Cyber Friday.

Our topic of discussion will be “Hacking 5G Security: An hour of critical thinking about the looming explosion of IoT on 5G networks.”

>> Register for the event happening on 07-21-23 <<

Joining me, David Spark (@dspark), producer of CISO Series, for this discussion will be:

In preparation for our discussion, think about the following:

  • High level: What’s the excitement of 5G, what’s the fear?
  • In what ways has the attack surface expanded?
  • Will 5G completely swamp security? How will SOCs be able to do investigations on these incidents?
  • How have IoT botnets evolved in the last 4-5 years?
  • What are some of the horrible things that can happen to your 4G or 5G core?
  • What do DDoS attacks look like in 5G?
  • What are the control planes we’re dealing with in 5G that we didn’t have to deal with before?

It all starts at 1 PM Eastern/10 AM Pacific. At the end of the hour [2 PM Eastern/11 AM Pacific] we’ll switch gears to our meetup where everyone will get a chance to chat face to face.

HUGE thanks to our sponsor Nokia
