Cybersecurity breaches and unauthorised access to sensitive personal data is any company’s worst nightmare and a reality many must ensure adequate security for.
Join the Futures Law Faculty, who will be hosting Marcus Weinberger, a self-taught, 16 year old ethical hacker from the UK, who can hack into your firm, right there on stage.
Marcus’s onstage hacking demo will be followed by Cobus Jooste, a lecturer from the University of Stellenbosch, who will help us navigate ourselves to safety.
The event is followed by wine and a harvest table.

More about Marcus Weinberger:
Marcus is an ethical hacker who, in his spare time, enjoys finding vulnerabilities in technology. Given his relatively young age and experience, he considers himself a beginner; nevertheless, he has achieved a level of knowledge, skill, and understanding that enables him to execute sophisticated penetration testing, security assessments, and audits.
Marcus also is a self-taught programmer and has written various programs and tools which he leverages in his work. He recently presented a session at the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) 2018 LegalSEC conference in Arlington, Virginia, where he gave a live demonstration of various security vulnerabilities. He was subsequently invited to deliver an encore presentation of that session at ILTA’s annual conference, ILTACON 2018.
