Event Description

Sharpen your awareness of social engineering techniques, and learn how to protect yourself and your systems.

When most people hear about a hacked company in the news, they usually assume that it was some type of technical failing that led to this exploit. More often than not, this assumption is wrong, since the attacker targeted the most vulnerable and often-overlooked security measure: the people.

In this virtual Tech Talk, you’ll learn how to prevent this and protect yourself online, because no matter how strong your security may be, humans will be the primary attacking point.

What You’ll Learn

  • Social engineering techniques and how to protect yourself from them
  • How attackers actually gain access to systems
  • How to protect yourself online, and by extension, your systems
