Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the system used for routing traffic across the internet. It identifies efficient routes for transporting data and information and keeps us connected to our networks. Just like a courier service, it will choose the best route to deliver the goods. For BGP, it delivers data from one IP address to another, in the most efficient way. <br><br>What happens when our BGP data gateway is compromised? As more of us are connected than ever before in this digital age, hijackers can take control of IP addresses and direct internet traffic the wrong way through the manipulation. This malicious activity can lead to vulnerable internet users being monitored, intercepted, or be directed to fake websites to have their credentials stolen. <br><br>Join ACS with our senior cyber security expert, Mathias Gartner, as we take a deep dive into understanding BGP protocol and routing issues. Learn from real case studies on BGP hijacking and what is being done to increase cyber security and outsmart the hijackers. <br><br><b>Key takeaway:</b><br>- Understanding of how the “Internet” works<br>- Understand how Routing-Hijacking can be done and the challenges<br>- A case study underlines the techniques used to reroute traffic (as heard in the media, recently 30. May 2019, Public DNS in Taiwan as latest victim).<br><br><i>Join the conversation on <a href="" target="_blank">LinkedIn</a>,  <a href="" target="_blank">Facebook</a> and <a href="" target="_blank">Twitter</a> using @ACSNSW and #ACSNSW </i><br><br><b>Getting here</b><br>If arriving by train from Wynyard, take exit 4 towards Barangaroo from the west end of the station.
