Social Engineering: Are You the Weakest Link?

Social Engineering has been around for as long as the crooks have but in a modern online world, running a con game has never been easier. And that’s why we need to be savvy.
A social engineer can research you on Facebook and LinkedIn; read up about your company on its website; and then target you via email, instant messaging, online surveys…and even by phone, for that personal touch. Worse still, many of the aspects of a so-called “targeted attack” like this can be automated, and repeated on colleague after colleague until someone crumbles.
Greg Iddon will take you into the murky world of targeted attacks, and show you how to build defences that will prevent one well-meaning employee from giving away the keys to the castle.

What you will take away from this session

  • Hear of the scale and variety of techniques social engineers use against their targets
  • Improve your awareness of the signs of a social engineer
  • Better protect yourself and your organisation against the extreme dangers of social engineering
