Speakers: Karen Ng & Bill Graydon
Topic: Let’s get physical: Breaking in like a pro to take security beyond cyber

Physical security is a critical set of skills cybersecurity pros need to learn. Let’s discover how to break into physical offices, industrial sites and so on in order to identify vulnerabilities. This talk will show tools and techniques to defend in the real world. Particularly as offices across Canada open back up, we need to spot and remediate physical security gaps. What you’ll learn during this talk:

  • Threat modelling in the physical world, and cyber mindsets you need to ditch to do it properly
  • The spectrum of physical vulnerability assessment techniques, culminating in a full red teaming
  • How-to for a “DIY” physical vulnerability assessment / pen test
  • The full process a professional pen test involves, from scoping and intelligence gathering through to execution and follow up
  • Trends in the industry and how COVID has impacted physical security.
