Overview:

Time and time again, we see how easy it is to dupe users into opening email attachments and clicking on links that they shouldnt. In fact, most cyber espionage campaigns and financial stealing-malware infections begin with a clever or even ridiculously simple phishing email. Chief Human Hacker Chris Hadgnay, a social engineering expert and author from Social-Engineer.com, sees this scenario play out every day while working with corporate clients to help them prevent their users from falling victim to social engineering attacks and ultimately, data breaches.

Hadnagy, who hosts the annual Social Engineering Capture the Flag Contest at DEF CON, will discuss the latest trends attackers are using, including those ploys used in the DEF CON contest where employees at major retailers gave away plenty of potentially sensitive information to callers posing as their IT department and others. Hadnagy also will give a postmortem on the DEF CON contest, where Home Depot was among the most socially engineered targets.
