The IT Program will be sponsoring a seminar on "Real World Attacks Dissected: A Walk Through of Attack Investigations and Forensic Evidence" on Oct. 3. Speakers Nick Pelletier (IT Alumnus), Brice Daniels and Willi Ballenthin of Mandiant will engage students by providing real-world scenarios that illustrate much of the information they have learned, or will learn, during the course of their curriculum. This talk encompasses the initial attack vectors, privilege escalation, maintaining persistence and data theft phases of an attack. By illustrating academic points with real world information, students and all attendees will better understand how to apply preventative and investigative skills in the real world. The seminar will take place in the Campus Center Ballroom B at 2:45 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
