|PRESENTER:||Wim Remes, Managing Consultant for IOActive|
|PRESENTATION:||Cultural Learning Of China To Make Benefit Glorious Profession Of Infosec|
|LOCATION:||The Imperial Riding School Vienna, Austria|
|DATE & TIME:||Thursday November 21, 2013 at 9:10am|
The current debate about China’s role in international hacking incidents and corporate espionage has largely been framed in a US-centric narrative. This fails to account for the fact that China was familiar with innovation, economic, and societal (im)balances long before Christopher Columbus accidentally landed in the New World. Wim will take the audience on a rollercoaster ride spanning more than 5,000 years of China’s history and cultural heritage. Attendees will understand the reality of advanced persistent threats (APT) and state-sponsored hacking as seen through the lens of China’s culture. This will enable attendees to better assess and protect against a variety of high-risk security threats of which they and their organizations may be a target.
