About the Talk
We will talk about the ways the people on CBS's "HUNTED" used technology to escape, evade, and even taunt the trained hunters pursuing them. We will use these clips to talk about security techniques, methods, and real world applications for today's information security professional.

About Hunted
Hunted follows nine teams of two in a real-life manhunt as they attempt the nearly impossible task of disappearing in today’s vast digital world as highly skilled investigators combine state-of-the-art tracking methods with traditional tactics to pursue and catch them. From searching their targets’ homes and scouring their internet and cell phone histories, to identifying behavioral patterns, Hunters in the field and Command Center investigators work together to identify clues to potential hiding places and collaborators that can ultimately lead to capture. A grand prize of $250,000 will be awarded to each team that successfully evades being caught for up to 28 days.
