In this talk “People Hacker” Jenny Radcliffe discusses the ongoing and persistent threat of Social Engineering, or human-based attacks, on businesses of all types and sizes. The talk covers how the cultural and human elements of an organization can help inform and shape the nature of these attacks and how glitches in our own thinking can be exploited to facilitate the cons, scams and attacks used by malicious social engineers.
Jenny will talk about her own experiences as an ethical Social Engineer and will discuss the tricks, tactics and methods she uses to attack organisations via their people. She will discuss why the “human element” is still such a popular way to “hack” into organisations, and why it is so difficult to “patch” this area of a company.
