// Keynote: Think and Act Like a Hacker to Protect Your Company’s Assets

The reality here is as follows: attacks happen and they will happen as long as there are humans on this planet. However, they should not happen if you protect your infrastructure properly.

Is there a weakness right now in your IT security system? Wouldn't it be better to find it before an untrusted source or hacker does? Even a small-scale security breach could leave your business in poor condition. Every day, you can apply some basic behaviors to protect your company from attack. It is really surprising how often a hacker can use the same paths to enter your system!

In the end, information security is not an IT department's problem, it is a business issue!

Let’s put you into the hacker's role, and perform all the activities they would to better understand the threats.
