IEEE ICTfest 2022


 “Cyber”, as the 5th domain of warfare, is getting more awareness recently.  Our unpreparedness is also becoming apparent.  In this talk, we will revisit some recent developments in the sector and discuss the underlying fundamentals of the problems we are seeing.  How can we increase our cybersecurity posture as individuals and organisations?  Simple cybersecurity awareness changes, combined with some common sense and essential critical thinking, can already bring us quite far.  We will discuss some examples of offensive methods and understand how to build the required defensive culture.
