Cyber security harkens to mind the hardening of networks, the deployment of code, and the fast typing fingers of armies of hackers and anti-hackers, all mixed into a war-like ecosystem of digital penetration and defense. What most people forget, however, is that there is a critical vulnerability to any cyber security plan, network or software architecture that can never be 100% secured: the human being.
This panel will explore the human domain in cyber security by discussing how humans hack other humans to penetrate a network. Panelists will compare principles of social engineering, digital influence, and the tradecraft employed by different adversarial entities to penetrate networks both social and hardware-based. Panelists will also discuss why adversaries attack organizations and humans using social engineering. Finally, panelists will offer recommendations for securing humans against socially engineered cyber attacks.
