HOPE 2020 (2020): "Source Code to the Human Mind - The Science Behind Social Engineering" (Download)
Thursday, July 30, 2020: 2000. Social engineering is one of the hottest talked about topics at conferences around the world. What makes social engineering so popular and why is it so successful? Why is social engineering so dangerous? In this talk, Christian goes beyond discussing popular techniques and exploits that are used in the hacker community. He will dive deep into reverse engineering the human mind and understanding how our DNA is coded to allow us to be so vulnerable. This talk is for anyone looking to hone in on their social engineering game, as well as those who want to improve their training programs and tactics to fight this threat.
Regardless of what side you're on, you will enter this talk as a social engineering script kiddie and leave as a master of manipulation. There is no going back; you will not see the world the same way again.
