PLEX Demos Wireless Fake Access in Mississippi

On September 30, 2015, Senior Vice President, Stan Nolen, and PLEX CTO, Terry Bradley, spoke to a group state of Mississippi government IT officials along with a couple of special agents from the Jackson, MS, FBI field office about cybersecurity. The presentation, sponsored by VSS, focused on prevention (implementing NIST’s Cybersecurity Framework) and response–specifically, incident response.

PLEX ended the talk with a quick demo of Immunity Inc.’s SILICA wireless attack suite. Terry Bradley ran a fake access point attack to show how effective (and unexpected) wireless attacks against mobile devices are. This never fails to get an audience excited…it was fun to watch them falling all over themselves trying to turn off their iPhones.
