Computer attacks that target software flaws are becoming more common and last longer than most cyber security experts have anticipated.
Learn more about these active malware attacks during the presentation of Gone in 60 Minutes – Proof of Concept to Exploit being held Tuesday, Oct. 30, at 7 p.m. in 170 University Hall.
The keynote speaker for this free event is David Hoelzer, founder of Cyber-Defense, a free open-source software organization that releases network, system, and forensic security tools.
During this fast-paced lecture, Hoelzer will take only 60 minutes to show just how quick and easy it is for malware attacks, or any other forms of zero-day attacks, to exploit the vulnerabilities and flaws imbedded in computer software.
“Our computers are not as safe as we think they are, and I believe Mr. Hoelzer’s presentation will help shed some light on this problem,” said Joanne Sexton, ASU computer science professor and the event’s coordinator.
With over 25 years of experience in the field of cyber security, Holezer serves as the director of research for EnclaveForensics as well as a consultant for numerous Fortune 100 and Fortune 50 organizations. Hoelzer continues to share his expertise at numerous IT security conferences as well as conducting software penetration tests and web application security assessments.
This event is co-sponsored by the James M. Hull College of Business and the Greater Augusta ISSA. For more information about this free event, call 706-737-1418.
