The Evolution of Security Attacks and Threats

When someone says they have a secure system, someone will invariably try to prove them wrong. It all started in the early 1900s when Marconi claimed his wireless telegraph was secure and Nevil Maskelyne said "Would you be a kind old chap and hold my beer".

This jouney through the history of security attacks will show you the evolution of security attacks and people's response. You will learn that history repeats itself, how some of the most simple things in the world can be used to hack all the things
