Presentation: Social Engineering, or “hacking people”
Just as a chain is as weak as its weakest link, computer systems are as vulnerable as their weakest component – and that’s rarely the technology itself, it’s more often the people using it. This is precisely why it’s usually easier to exploit people’s natural inclination to trust than it is to discover ways to hack into computer systems. As the art of manipulating people into them giving up confidential information, Social Engineering has been a hot topic for many years. This session will discuss some of the most common Social Engineering techniques and countermeasures.
