Peter Katrinec has been working in the field of information security for more than 12 years. He gained experience at ESET in selling and managing a wide range of consulting services in the field of information security, technical audits and threat intelligence. He is currently cooperating with Flowmon Networks, acquired in 2020 by Kemp Technologies, a manufacturer of network monitoring and diagnostic solutions for network operation and security, and is also using its experience to manage the first Slovak bug bounty of the Hacktrophy project.
At ESET we have recently monitored an increase of specially altered harmful codes used for targete attacks on different types of organizations. We have therefore launched a project which will in the future help to detect occurrence of such a harmful code in initial phase of the attack at the organisation and warning the organisation of such a threat. The presentation will provide information on the project of early warning before targeted attack of a harmful code and description of information provided to the targeted organisation.

Subsequently, based on analysis it assesses the present-day security awareness of employees in companies in Slovakia and Czech Republic – based on real-life examples and experience with employee resistance to social engineering attacks. In addition, it looks at the potential consequences of an actual attack on organizations and the available approaches to increasing security awareness.
