About this talk

It has been said time and time again that humans are the weakest link when it comes to organisational security. When it comes to social engineering, this is most certainly true. Social engineering relies on human error to gain access to confidential information. When social engineering is at an all time high - 98% of cyber attacks rely on social engineering (Purplesec) - making sure your employees are educated and informed should be your first line of defence. Join us in this session as we discuss: - How to educate your employees about cyber security - Why social engineering is so prominent today - The most common types of social engineering, and how to avoid them - What to expect from cyber criminals in the next year
