Come and hear from the experts as to what the new hacking trends really are....

Thomas Olofsson is a leading information security commentator, analyst, and CTO of Defcom. He is delivering a session tailored to journalists that will provide an in-depth review of the current trends in hacking and how the new American and European laws, such as the EUCD (European Copyright Directive) affect the IT security marketplace and will change the landscape of future hacker attacks we are seeing as the most threatening.

This session will also cover:

· What type of new attacks are we seeing as most threatening at this stage;

· Application hacking;

· Man in the Middle attacks and other popular attack methods;

The latest threats and vulnerabilities, describing how they work and why they are still exploitable for the common attacker.
