Hacking in the Age of AI: How AI, Voice Cloning, and ChatGPT Has Changed the Way We Hack

In the past year, we’ve witnessed a paradigm shift in hacking with the advent of powerful AI algorithms, AI voice-cloning capabilities, and the accessibility of ChatGPT. These AI innovations have revolutionized the way hackers operate, presenting both unprecedented challenges and opportunities for the cybersecurity community. Join us as we explore live AI hacking demonstrations, discuss the implications of these hacks on your organization, and how you can still catch these hackers in the act – even in the ever-changing landscape of cybersecurity.

How I Would Hack You: Live!

This live demo is one of Tobac’s most sought-after events. YOU pick a team member—ideally someone with a social media presence and a sense of humor! SHE will hack them LIVE—in-person or virtually—but with zero real-world consequences or harm to their social identity or your organization’s cyber security. As she hacks them, Tobac explains, step by step, what a real hacker would do, how they would do it and why you would be unlikely to see it coming. As the audience, you and your team get a chance to step into the shoes of a hacker and see spear phishing and other trending hacker techniques in action (but in a safe and controlled environment). It’s a fun and powerful way to make everyone on your team aware of the importance of cyber security while highlighting both the risks we face and the responsibilities we all have as individuals and organizations in the digital realm.
