Sacramento Meetup - The Mindset of a Hacker - Tackle Digital Security Together
Sutter Center Patrick Hayes Learning Center
2700 Gateway Oaks
Sacramento, CA 95833
We have an adversary in common: the hacker. This cat and mouse fight with no end in sight brings out the good, the bad and the ugly, and the hacker will likely succeed at some point. You don't even have to be a target to become a victim -- they may just get lucky! Every one of us shares this concern, so we need to be in this fight together. While we will sometimes lose a battle, together we must win the war. But how? Where can we find an edge?
Knowing your enemy is a great place to start. Join us as we discuss the hacker's mindset, and how understanding it will be of value to all of us. We'll also cover how working together enables you to stay focused on digital security.
