This talk will take a look at how inadvertently leaked technical information from businesses, can be used to successfully trade stocks. This results in making huge profits. We look at different methods of influencing the stock market, such as DDOS attacks (at critical time periods) and simple techniques such as Phish-baiting CEO's to acquire sensitive, relevant information that can be applied in the real world to make massive gains in profit.

We will also take a look at historic trends. How previous hacks, breaches and DDOS attacks have affected stock prices and investor confidence over time. Specific reference will be made towards listed companies and a POC will hopefully be completed by the presentation date.
