Challenging the industry norms and pushing past limitations is a shared founding principle of INE and Pentester Academy. At a time when data breaches, ransomware, and exploits represent an existential threat to the world, being at the leading edge of the newest offensive and defensive techniques are critical to stopping these attacks.
About Vivek Ramachandran
You've heard of the classic caffe latte, but we're here to talk about Vivek, who discovered the Caffe Latte attack. For those who are unfamiliar, the Caffe Latte attack was a cyber attack that targeted Wi-Fi insecurities and was named for its’ swiftness, as an attack could be conducted in the time it took to have a single cup of coffee.
Vivek discovered this attack sequence in 2007, and founded Pentester Academy in 2011. Today, he is one of the most influential voices in the world of cyber security and has taught thousands of students around the world.
A previous user of INE himself, Vivek has been part of the INE journey for years. We’re excited to see what he and Pentester Academy bring to the playing field and look forward to increased collaboration efforts.
