10 Ways I Can Hack Your Website (and Why I Would Want To)

During this seminar you will learn the 10 commonest ways your website can be hacked, why a hacker would want to, and how to reduce the likelihood that a hacker will succeed.  It’s a sad fact that during the COVID-19 pandemic Leicester was locked down tighter than most business websites. Hackers target small business websites because they are less well protected than those of large companies and organisations. They may be looking for client information (names, addresses, email addresses, credit card details) or using these sites to spread malware and ransomware.
I have 25 years’ experience developing and building websites for SMEs and small office/home office businesses. Over the last 5 years I have helped companies recover from hacked websites and tested company websites to expose the vulnerabilities and suggest how they can be fixed, before the bad guys get in and abuse them.
I am professionally accredited by CREST, IISP (now Chartered Institute of Information Security) and GCHQ to perform penetration testing on websites, web applications, network infrastructure and wireless networks and I start a PhD in Cybersecurity in October.  

The event is aimed at micro and small business owners, IT managers or larger companies.  Attendees will gain an understanding of why a hacker might want to hack a website - even a simple brochure style one and what simple steps can be taken to reduce the chance that a hack attempt will be successful.
