Dean is a computer security researcher from Portland, Oregon. He has attended all the Toorcamps so far, and even spoken at some of them on topics such as wireless hacking, surveillance, and hacking cryptocurrency smart contracts. Lately he has been working external Red Team and Penetration Testing engagements for various companies across several industries, so that's probably the sort of thing he's going to be talking about this time.
Modern criminals don't hack computers, they hack people. Emulating modern techniques requires modern tooling. This talk takes you on a journey from being an outsider to full domain compromise of a modern corporate network, with a focus on identifying and leveraging human targets at each step along the escalation path, all using freely available open source tools.
