How hackers used big data extraction techniques to pull off the most sophisticated cybercrime in US history

Credit cards belonging to eighty million Americans were exposed in the data breach at Target Stores last Christmas.  While the impact on consumers was widely publicized, details regarding the underlying sophistication of the attack have only recently emerged.  The Target Breach has ushered in a new phase in the war against cyber criminals.  This discussion, hosted by Reliant Security, will illustrate how hackers used big data extraction techniques in an automated attack that stole credit card data from thousands of Point-of-Sale terminals.
