QuBit Conference Belgrade 2017 – Vulnerabilities on Social Media and more

QuBit Cybersecurity Conference, an annual cyber security event gathering security professionals, is one of the LIFARS‘ valued alliances, and it will come to Belgrade, Serbia this October 18th and 19th.

Social Media, an inseparable part of our everyday life.

But be careful! it is not only the ideal way for establishing relationships but also a perfect hunting ground for illegal activity.

People are the biggest vulnerability on social media as they show an inherent trust. Cyber threat is no longer only about clicking on some link or downloading dangerous files. Today there are various infected adverts, malwares, ransomwares and other ways to harm the user. The most known is malware also called as a gateway into the computer system. Once, criminals have an access to the infected computer, the whole access is put up for sale. Criminals can then install a software that reads users usernames and passwords. Aleksandar Mirkovic, CISO at Opportunity bank in Serbia and a speaker at QuBit Conference Belgrade 2017, will demonstrate how to get a full control over private banking accounts or even company resources with knowing just a twitter profile. Is it really possible to get a full control only with some social engineering practices, trojans, and some most common post-exploitation technics to stay at the victim forever?

Cyber security is not only limited to Social Media security and privacy. During two days on October 18 – 19, QuBit Conference Belgrade 2017 will focus on other important topics in the cybersec area: Technical & Threat Intelligence Sharing, Building Cooperation & Skills in Area of cybersecurity at (Inter)national level and Legal & Organizational Cybersecurity. The conference will gather and connect more than 130 delegates mainly from SEE region to share their best practices, experience, and information.
