The Fappening and Snappening Exposed: Implications for the Information Security Industry

In September, the industry went into meltdown after news broke that hackers managed to steal explicit private photos of over 100 celebrities and Hollywood stars and leak them online.

A month later, the internet rumour-mill has gone into overdrive once again as news emerged of another potential leak of intimate private photos, this time of Snapchat users.  Users on 4Chan, the image board via which many of the iCloud celebrity photos were shared, have been abuzz with what has been dubbed ‘The Snappening’.

This webinar will provide an in-depth analysis of both hacks and get to the bottom of the truth behind the headlines.

Panellists will discuss the nature of the hacks, the real-world consequences, and explore how these leaks could have been prevented.
