Remote Access Security: An Ethical Hack Demo

1:00pm - 2:00pm Thursday, February 14
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W230A

Description

Our society demands immediate access to information, from any location, and the healthcare industry is no different. But how do we throw open the doors to those with a right to see the information while keeping them closed to those who don't? This session will feature an ethical hacking demo to demonstrate the risks of open connectivity and will show how to secure those risks. The speaker will show how hackers connect to an inadequately protected computer, get past an insecure password, put malware on the system, and use that malware to siphon sensitive data. The demo will take place in virtual machines walled off from other devices at the conference, so attendee devices will be safe. At critical points, the presenter will highlight the vulnerabilities that allowed the hack and discuss security controls you can put in place to reduce the chances of a hack. The nature of a live ethical hack demo makes it appealing to all audiences, but this session is primarily intended for people who are not necessarily technical.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Recognize the risks associated with remote access
  • List common vulnerabilities related to remote access that are targeted by hackers
  • Identify security controls that should be in place to reduce remote access risks
  • Discuss possible security solutions with information and technology personnel
