Hacking 101: Social Engineering
Hacking 101: Social Engineering with JC Boysha
This 101 teaches attendees common social engineering techniques and how one can effectively deal with them. Social Engineering refers to the psychological manipulation of people for the purpose of getting them to give up confidential information. Individuals are targeted, and tricked into giving criminals their passwords, bank information, or access to their computers. Social engineering is commonly used because of the ease of exploiting human error compared to the difficulty of attempting to bypass software defenses, which requires big technical skills.
