No matter how much security technology we purchase and chuck into the data center, we still face the most fundamental of security problems, which is the hardest to overcome: people.  People are susceptible every day to charismatic tricksters seeking to separate organizations from their data and their money.

This webinar will explore the different levers that social engineers and scam artists pull to make us more likely to do their bidding.

Join us as we provide fun and engaging examples of mental manipulation in everyday life: from the tactics used by oily car dealers, to sophisticated social engineering and online scams. Additionally, We'll look at how to ethically use the very same levers when educating our users.
