Physical aspect of penetration testing
In this presentation Catalin is going to show techniques and tricks to get past doors, windows and locks with the final goal of getting physical access to ICT infrastructure, devices and business or personal data. If an attacker is able to gain physical access to your devices and ICT infrastructure by entering your computer room, hotel room or your house, the access to the data on your devices becomes quite easy. IT people normally do not have to deal with physical security as that is usually another departments’ responsibility. Penetration testing must take into account physical security. After this talk, you will be able to detect some physical flaws or weaknesses in order to get them fixed.
