Masterclass ???Security??? ??? Hackner Security Intelligence #crime

leave a comment »

Last Saturday I was invited to go to a Physical Security Workshop organized by Independent Films to promote the movie Flypaper[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1541160/]. The workshop was given by Thomas Hackner of Hackner Security Intelligence[http://www.hackner-security.com/], an independent security auditing company.

The workshop started with a large amount of statistics on the current rates of crime in Austria, and a discussion of the methods by which property crimes are commited. Next there was some practical analysis of the security measures which are currently implemented in securing different classes of objects – houses, office, secure facilities, etc – and the various security measures that are implemented to ensure a certain level of security.

And as with any workshop there was a destructive and non-destructive practicum for most of the items discussed: windows, doors, locks, chains and social engineering. Besides from lockpicking and designing tools to circumvent security non-destructively, we also got to break into a door by destroying the lock and manually manipulating the locking mechanism.

It was great fun!
