(InfoSec 201) How do we know our information security defenses are working? One way is to hire an outside firm to hack us! In this session, we will discuss the spring 2020 Red Team engagement at Princeton (a simulation that was designed to measure how well the University could withstand an attack from a real-life adversary). Join us to learn about the Red Team’s successes and failures, and how this exercise led to overall improvements in our security posture.

Please note this session will run from 2:05 - 2:50 pm.
