This definitive and comprehensive workshop, which was held in Johannesburg between March 8th and 10th, was based on Dr. Ali Jahangiri’s book ‘Live Hacking: The Ultimate Guide to Hacking Techniques and Countermeasures for Ethical Hackers and IT Security Experts’.

During the workshop attendees are introduced to the world of hacking and information security and given the knowledge they need to thwart the criminal elements in cyberspace. The South African attendees learnt how to hack and crack using the techniques and tools of real hackers.

“The workshop was great, we had participants from many different industries and governmental organizations. I would also like to thank InfoCure, our local partner in South Africa, for making this workshop a success” said Dr. Jahangiri at the end of the workshop. “I am pleased to announce that there will be a second Live Hacking South Africa Workshop in August.”

Places are limited for the second Live Hacking South Africa Workshop and there are only a few seats remaining. During the workshop Dr. Jahangiri will reveal the “tricks of the trade” while drawing on his many years of academic, professional and practical experience to equip you and your organization with the know-how you need to defend your data against the rising tide of ubiquitous and persistent cyber criminals.
