THE MAN WHO DISCOVERED VULNERABILITIES IN FACEBOOK, GOOGLE, TWITTER, YOUTUBE AND OTHER WELL-KNOWN ONLINE APPLICATIONS

Jamie began his computer hacking career when only 9 years old. While studying information systems at Bangor University, he successfully hacked Facebook as part of a student competition. As his capabilities evolved, he hacked into Kim Kardashian’s site, uncovering flaws that were putting her fans’ data at substantial risk.

Today, global blue-chip companies commission him to discover vulnerabilities within their computer networks, websites and servers. A ‘poacher turned gamekeeper’ he also teaches companies how to train their staff to avoid being exposed to security breaches. Highlighting the human aspect of hacking, he demonstrates how he once impersonated a Domino’s pizza delivery person at a large financial institution to gain access to its server room.  He also impersonated a chef, a waiter and an airline cabin crew in other situations to quickly access data.

Jamie Woodruff is a director at Technology Insights Consulting, a cyber security company specialising in training, penetration testing and recruitment. An expert in social engineering, he is a safety advisor for the Cyber Smile Foundation that focuses on the prevention of online cyber bullying.

A humorous and fascinating speaker, Jamie suggests there is no “typical hacker” and involves the audience to understand how they can be manipulated and in turn, protect their systems and network security.

Going forward, Woodruff advises companies “Adapt and evolve. Cyber security is part of that process.
