Manufacturers’ Association has invited Stronghold Cyber Security founder and CEO Jason McNew to speak about the Dark Web at its ‘Business Espionage’ morning half-day forum on Thursday, February 22. The event will feature discussions on ransomware, cyber-theft, the Dark Web, and IoT hacks.
McNew will be discussing “The Dark Web: The Bad Guy’s Craigslist“, an encrypted, “hidden” part of the web inaccessible by traditional search engines. He will be showcasing some of the unsavory products and services that can be found on the Dark Web, which can include purchasing bulk batches of personally identifiable information (PII), drugs, weapons, and more. Back in November 2017, McNew discussed the Dark Web on WGAL 8 news with Brian Roche.
Other topics discussed will cover cover employee theft of intellectual property and financial information, case histories and ‘bad actor’ profiles of actual prosecuted federal cases, insight on current and future malicious email attacks, network threats, and will also provide a look into the susceptibility of your connected production equipment by outsiders via the Internet of Things (IoT).
This event will be hosted at Shipley Energy in York, Pennsylvania. Admission is $15 for any employee of a member company, and Manufacturers’ Association partners, $20 for non-Association attendees and the general public.
