Welcome to Miami – Hacker Halted USA
The 5th Hacker Halted USA is now taking place in Miami under the slogan – Unravel the Enigma of Insecurity after hurricane Sandy passed Florida last weekend.
Day 1 is the keynote day, so luckily no splitted presentation-streams. After a nice conference opening by Eric Lopez (Conference Director), Jay Bavisi gave a good introduction about the challenges of the post-PC era. He described the evolution of the hardware landscape from classic PCs to small, mobile and smart devices and how the requirements for it-security change. Further this brings problems to forensics, more privacy risks and new social engineering attacks as well as other threats.
