This will be a one of a kind presentation guiding you through and deconstructing a variety of attacks to show how social engineers utilize psychological principles to exploit an organization’s weakest link, the employees. Our objective is not to simply describe psychological principles, but to help you understand what social engineering is, how you can pursue a career in social engineering, and arm you with countermeasures to combat these powerful attacks. This is not a presentation you want to miss.
