How to Hack Humans and Unfluence People

Most security breaches are due to the failure of the human element: the intruders hack the humans to hack the systems. You can hack more systems in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get in through technology. This session talks about how malicious hackers influence - or in this case “unfluence” - their victims using manipulation and coercion and exploiting the bugs in the human hardware. Security professionals need to understand how they can be vulnerable to the factors of unfluence, so they can detect, deter, and deliver countermeasures. Additionally, attendees will learn the importance of human factors, psychology, and leadership for security professionals. The speaker will cover social engineering through examples, demonstrations, and case studies to make sure you and your employees aren’t under the unfluence.
