Presentation Title: Social Engineering Fundamentals
Presentation Details:

** Presenting with Dave Mckay

“You might say there are two specialties within the job classification of con artist. Somebody who swindles and cheats people out of their money belongs to one sub-specialty, the grifter. Somebody who uses deception, influence, and persuasion against businesses, usually targeting their information, belongs to the other sub-specialty, the social engineer.” -Kevin Mitnik

In today’s world confidence scams present quite possibly the highest threat to security with in the business world. Control of information, withholding and leaking, can lead to massive failures and losses depending on how skilled the attacker may be. In combination with disinformation and propaganda, social engineering can as fatal as or even lead to loss of customer and shareholder confidence.
