Hacking Wetware: A History of Social Engineering

Hacking Wetware: A History of Social Engineering

Speakers

Most security incidents today start with social engineering, attacks on people, not machines. With stories and experiences from three decades in security and espionage, Lance explores how people and culture have always been cyber security’s front line. Using tales of personalities and exploits, Lance shows how security is primarily a cultural challenge rather than a technological problem. Participants will take away insights into better security that apply to their own lives and organizations.
