Some of the highlights of the Black Hat Asia 2014 Briefings include:

Exposing vulnerabilities within our homes and cars from abusing the "Internet of Things" to spy from baby monitors and orchestrate blackouts to taking over the CAN (controller area network) bus at the heart of most modern cars with a device constructed for only $20, allowing an attacker to control it remotely.

Preventing attacks on critical infrastructure with talks around Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) hacks, the mandatory tracking system used worldwide on commercial ships for identifying and locating vessels, and the exploitation of access control and facility management systems in modern corporate office and utility buildings.

Analyzing targeted international attacks looking at vulnerabilities with Open Government Systems and Open Data Laws that reveal confidential political and personal information, as well as examining the range of attacks being carried out on journalists as the newest target for sensitive information including the meltdown in South Korea as a result of the "Wiper" malware in 2013.

These world class Briefings will come after two days of high intensity and deeply technical Training courses taught by the industry's most renowned instructors. These separate technical deep-dives will cover topics ranging from the latest in penetration testing to exploiting web applications and even defending and building SCADA systems.
