The Covid pandemic has led a sudden and large shift towards online services worldwide. People are spending more time online and depending more on digital communication. Such heightened online activities have unfortunately attracted malign actors and significantly increased cyber-attacks in the past few years.

This workshop will examine a range of cyber-attacks that have recently emerged. Each of the identified attacks will be analyzed to understand its characteristics, associated threats and risks. Demonstrations and hands-on exercises will be given to illustrate how these cyber-attacks could be carried out in practical settings and their corresponding damages. Available mitigations and suggestions will be provided and discussed to combat/ avoid the attacks.

The workshop will look into a number of specific cyber-attack areas including location spoofing, deepfake attack, risks associated with SMS OTP, weakness of 2FA, rise of the Dark web as well as offline to online attack. We will look into and study the attack vectors employed by the hackers and find out if there is any countermeasures available to defend such attacks. Attendee will have opportunities to experience some of these attacks first hand for a more in-depth understanding of the associated risk and damages. We will also analyze the level of risk mitigation and trade-off such as privacy, inconvenience, cost and loss of productivity associated with these countermeasures.
