Levers of Human Deception: The Science and Methodology Behind Social Engineering
No matter how much security technology we purchase, we still face a fundamental security problem: people. This webinar will explore the different levers that social engineers and scam artists pull to make us more likely to do their bidding.
Join Perry Carpenter, Chief Evangelist and Strategy Officer for KnowBe4, as he provides 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.
