    14:15 Web Application Database Compromised
    In this demonstration a malicious attacker has managed to compromise a web application and gather customer information stored within its database. The database held important personal customer information which an attacker could use to hack into other accounts that user has. Our certified ethical hacker will demonstrate how easy it is for an attacker to exploit a vulnerable web application and compromise the database. With the GDPR coming into force in May the financial and reputational damage that an organisation faces if a breach similar to this scenario happened can be very significant.
