Hacking your mind and emotions!
Most admins will agree that users tend to be the weakest link in the maintenance of security in an environment. People are easily manipulated by their very nature. Social Engineering techniques are used on us every day, and I will demonstrate how you can learn to recognize those techniques and build some strong defenses in your environment. I will discuss and demonstrate some basic psychology, social engineering theory and actual implementation at several levels: Remote interaction, Indirect manipulation, and one-on-one engineering. I will also discuss some defense against these attacks through the use of effective policies and awareness training.
