About this talk

In honor of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we’re sitting down with Jenny Radcliffe, The People Hacker & Professional Social Engineer, to discuss how today’s hackers use the “human element” to gain access to sensitive data and take down organizations. With over 90% of cyber-crimes caused by the direct exploitation of employees and with the costs, both financial and human, of falling prey to hackers rising at an alarming rate. This discussion will offer real-life examples and practical guidance on how to help employees spot and avoid cyberattacks. Join us to learn: -How cons, scams, and frauds are constructed and how you can help your teams spot them -The psychology behind why users fall for spoofed identities and websites -The ins and outs of social engineering – and ways to mitigate this risk -Easy steps you can take today to ensure everyone is doing their part to keep your organization secure
