Join Brent White as he discusses proven methods of bypassing popular physical security controls and employees, using only publicly available tools and social engineering. You'll hear war stories from assessments, and the frightening simplicity of gaining unauthorized physical access to many things from server rooms to Top Secret Ops rooms. These assessments will be broken down to discuss the various social engineering and physical security bypass methods and tools used, as well as remediation recommendations.
