I am pleased to announce that I will be speaking again at NDC London in January 2017. For this conference my talk is called Hacking Humans : Social Engineering Techniques and How to Protect Against Them.
Social engineering is one of the biggest threats to our organisations as attackers use manipulation techniques to coerce people into revealing secrets about our companies to allow attackers to gain access to critical systems.
In this talk we will look at some of the techniques used in social engineering and look at how to guard yourself against them. We will cover subjects like pre-texting, elicitation and body language as techniques for manipulating people.
I am really looking forward to doing this talk and I think it will be a lot of fun for the audience as we explore techniques for manipulating people and then how to protect against them.
