Hear in by using WebEx from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 12, as Ocean County School presents its next cybersecurity seminar, led by Maddie Stone, a safety researcher on Google Job Zero.
The undertaking delves into “zero day” exploitation, which takes place “when an attacker abuses a vulnerability that the defenders really don’t yet know about,” OCC clarifies. “This tends to make it quite really hard to shield in opposition to zero day exploits and also would make these vulnerabilities hugely precious.”
So how do we defend towards the exploitation of not known vulnerabilities? It begins with understanding every thing we can about zero working day exploits.
Stone has expended the previous two several years learning zero days that are actively exploited by attackers in the wild. In this chat, she’ll talk about these exclusive, considerably exceptional, exploits, together with comprehensive illustrations from 2021.
Prior to her present situation, Stone was a reverse engineer and lead person on the Android Security staff, focusing predominantly on pre-mounted and off-Google Engage in malware. She retains a bachelor’s of science, with a double major in computer science and Russian, and a master’s of science in laptop or computer science, from Johns Hopkins College.
