Presented by

Steven F. Fox, CISSP, QSA, Security Architecture and Engineering Advisor, U.S. Department of Treasury

About this talk

Social engineering is the art of creating social illusions that result in the sharing of sensitive information or physical access to secured areas. This webinar will review the psychological framework that informs a social engineer's reconnaissance, pretext formulation, and social exploit activities. A case study will illustrate the use of the Social Engineer's Toolkit, Maltego, and Google Hacking to collect information that contributed to a successful engagement. Attendees will learn to identify social illusions and respond to protect their personal and professional data. They will also learn how to frustrate the efforts of social engineers.
