The Circle of HOPE (2018): "Social Engineering" (DVD)
Friday, July 20, 2018: 4:00 pm (Vaughan): One of HOPE's longest running traditions, this panel is a fun gathering where stories of social engineering triumphs and failures are shared. Social engineering is, of course, the subsection of hacking that focuses on obtaining information out of people by gaining their trust and lying through your teeth. As long as there's a human somewhere in the equation, this method of compromising security will always be possible. Techniques will be shared and an experiment or two will be performed live over our trusty landline.
