What does hacking truly mean? We hear the term every day, but what does it actually look like? One of the biggest impediments to cybersecurity is the confusion around what the bad guys are really doing. During this session, three legal technologists who have built dozens of applications and had to protect against hackers, will demonstrate how people actually “hack” into something. From simple JavaScript manipulation to SQL injection, the speakers will hack a fake website set up to show just how easy it is and how damaging the results can be. Audience members are encouraged to bring a laptop and attempt some of the exploits along with the presenters. All audience members will walk away with a better understanding of what “hacking” looks like as well as various methods of preventing the exploits they just witnessed. Audience members will also be able to see if some of their own websites contain the same vulnerabilities and be able to talk confidently with their IT staff/vendors.
