Webcast: Modern Social Engineering Part II – Top 5 Ways to Manipulate Humans Over the Wire

| April 15, 2009

eh-net_tv.jpgIn Part I, Modern Social Engineering – A Vital Component of Pen TestingChris Nickerson & Mike Murray adeptly covered the generalities of Social Engineering, and how it is a repeatable process perfect for inclusion in penetration testing. So let’s go a little deeper into crafting these attacks. What are some of the tricks of the verbal trade that make people far more likely to fall prey to those phishing attacks or that fraudulent web site? What tools can I use to test and eventually utilize to attack… er… audit my target organization? This 1-hour webcast dives deeper into the process of Electronic SE (eSE) and offers real-world examples of combining the skills of the social engineer with the toolkit of the ethical hacker.

So, please mark your calendars and join us for this continuing series on Social Engineering. You can also meet all of us and many more industry experts at ChicagoCon, the World’s Only Ethical Hacking Conference. And at only $100 for 2 days on May 8 – 9 with talks, CtF, breakout sessions, food, swag and more, it’s a steal!

Join world-renowned social engineers, Chris Nickerson of TruTV’s Tiger Team and noted expert and international speaker, Mike Murray, as they prepare you for the future of pen testing. This webcast on Thursday April 30, 2009 at 12:00 Noon CDT continues your education in the world of "Modern Social Engineering."

The $100 Ethical Hacking Conference is May 8 – 9, 2009


As mentioneded in Part I, InfoSec is changing. Web apps are the vector-du-jour, but that well is also drying up for organized crime. Creeping up the OSI Model looking for easier ways to steal your corp assets, they’re quickly making it to the unspoken 8th layer, the end user. So what’s next in the escalation of this cyber war?

We must do as Sun Tzu and "Think like our enemy!" That is, after all, the primary tenet of penetration testing AKA ethical hacking. After years of hardening, we have come full circle to a new dawn of attack. People are now the target of the advanced hacker, and the cross-hairs are focused squarely on their foreheads… literally. It’s only a matter of time before corporations feel the pain of wetware hacking. 

It has become imperative to assemble a world-class team of experts to train professionals on the technologies and methods of the most dangerous and costly attackers, social engineers. ChicagoCon has responded with the first ever offering of the Social Engineering Master Class, developed and taught by Mike and Chris from May 4 – 8, 2009. For more information, please visit www.chicagocon.com/2009s/semasterclass.html.

If you are looking for a class to show you a new way to ask for a password or silly parlor tricks to mess with someone’s head, then this course is not for you! If, however, you desire to uncover advanced level material of both a technical and psychological manner, and learn the repeatable methods to gather intelligence, execute attacks, manipulate situations, and formally track a company’s susceptibility to social engineering… and be able to mess with someone’s head, then there simply is no other course like this in the world.

After the live event, come right back to this thread to talk to Chris and Mike.
