talks about his back-to-back conferences for security researchers and hackers, emerging threats to cyber security and how hacking works. >> you have to remember, now it's pretty hostile everywhere. it used to be just hostile during defcon and black hat. now every airport seems to have a fake cell tower operating. fake wi-fi catchers, because if you're going to steal somebody's log-in, why not at the business lounge in the international airport. that's where the high-value targets are. if you monitor your wi-fi signals when you are traveling you'll see fake base stations. amtrak station. d.c. has a fake cell tower outside of it a couple of times. this is the way that it is. and if you are a criminal and you can build a backpack to int intercept information and leave the backpack plugged in somewhere. that's more low risk than trying to rob a bank. >> tonight at 8:00 eastern on c-span 2.
