Most organizations today consider themselves “security-conscious” and may spend significant budget dollars on technology to protect themselves and their networks from intrusion. However, technology alone cannot protect your systems from your biggest vulnerability – the people who work for you. “Social Engineering” is the practice of gaining information or access to protected systems by tricking insiders into providing it. Most people who fall victim to a social engineering attack are people who would never consciously reveal confidential data, but can provide a skilled hacker with the knowledge they need to destroy files or entire systems. In this presentation we will show you how to think like a hacker trying to infiltrate your organization so you can better protect yourself from social engineering attacks.
