Good tools gone bad: Are we on a slippery slope to communications chaos?

Chester Wisniewski, Sophos

Abstract: 

As offensive "red team" tools become more available, both commercially and open source, they are becoming ever more sophisticated. While this is a boon for the good guys, it is also helping our adversaries mount increasingly advanced attacks at a velocity many are unprepared for. We are also beginning to see tools for hacking medical devices, cars, drones and other tools available to the masses, but will this improve our security or create chaos?
