It’s hard to believe that the "HackTech Conference" is just around the corner — in only a few days to be exact! The whole team in Ahmedabad getting ready and seriously, this is going to be a fantastic event.

Now we'll be sharing an exclusive interview with one of our Keynote Speaker, speaking at "HackTech Conference". Today, we're featuring "Vanshit Malhotra".

Q. Tell me something about yourself ?

I am Vanshit Malhotra , an information security Enthusiast and Infosec reseacher having a 5 + years of Experience in Information Security Industry and currently working with Aujas Network as a full time penetration tester,which means hacking gives me my salary. I am also a Security Researcher , Infosec Trainer and Cyber crime investigator . I am also an active bug bounty hunter , listed in hall of fame , and an active blogger .  

Q. What do you love and hate about working in the cyber security industry ?

Love : Everything . How a few lines of code can be used to breakdown the security of a sophisticated operating system. Shellcodes, Malwares, wireless attacks, cracking the perimeter of most secure infrastructures ... love it all ..

Hate : Absolutely Nothing... But sometimes its anoying when people argue for convenience over security 

Q.AWARDS, PRESENTATIONS ALL OVER THE WORLD, PUBLICATIONS… IS INFORMATION SECURITY YOUR PROFESSION OR YOUR PASSION ?

I am an extremely passionate guy when it comes to my work, Information security . I have been doing small time hacks since my school days and have been evolving since. So luckily , I have found my profession in my passion.

Q. Can you give us any hints about your topic ?

Attendees can expect to see Live Demonstrations on step by step bypassing of the AV engines ! I will be showing how to bypass the most popular AV engines for a well detected malware ... simply fooling the Antivirus solutions through out the talk.

Q. IN WHAT WAY DID THIS EVENT HELP ATTENDEES ?

Almost all the endpoint security is dependent of Antivirus Solutions . We trust the Antivirus to protect us against the malwares, ransomwares and other threats. But how often do you really test the capabilities of the AV engines ? Even the tightest Penetration Tests and security Assessments do not test the AV engines for their effectiveness . I will be showing how penetration testers can target the weakness in the Antivirus engines and bypass them. 

Q. WHAT ARE YOUR EXPECTATIONS FROM THE CONFERENCE ?

They Say and I quote "Sharing is Caring" ! I am looking forward to loads of knowledge sharing among the speakers and audiences from different domains of Information Security. As Security Consultants our job is to spread Infosec awareness and speaking at confrences is an excellent way to do that .I am also keen to meet infosec community and have an opportunity to attend the talks by other speakers.
