Give me your data! presented at BSidesMemphis 2014

by Dave Chronister,

Summary : We hear new stories daily about a malicious hacker compromising the sensitive data of corporations, governments and individuals. But that is only half of the story. The genesis of this talk was from the idea that even today, data is still not stored securely. Ethical Hacker conducted a research project in which he wanted to find out if he could gain access to sensitive data. The catch? He would not hack any systems, all data must be collected legally. From buying devices on Facebook and bidding for Hard Drives on Ebay, to monitoring public photo sharing sites; Dave will discuss the methods to retrieve the information. Dave will show his findings, some of which is very surprising.
