LMG Security Overview And What A Career In Infosec Looks Like - Dan Featherman (CTO, LMG Security)

In this talk Dan (CTO of LMG Security) will give an overview of what exactly LMG Security does and talk about the skills needed to succeed in an infosec career.

How the Dark Web Works - Matt Durrin (Security Consultant, LMG Security)

What makes the dark web so dark? In this talk, we’ll show you how the dark web works, and then explore “carder shops” and other sites where criminals buy and sell your stolen data. Learn about “onion routing,” and see how criminals set up Tor and use it to browse the myriad of offerings. We’ll also show you how much your data is currently worth on the black market, with brand new screenshots of the current shops. Finally, we’ll discuss how the current underground trends relate to the latest threats, and how to protect yourself in the coming year.
