Social Engineering: the devil is in the details
The speaker, Ivano Somaini from Compass Security, was a member of the amateur acting group at the Cantonal School of Graubünden at Chur. With his Master in Information Security at ETH Zurich, he found the perfect way to combine those interests: Social Engineering.
You will learn more about the methodologies of a professional Social Engineer as well as the newest attack vectors available. Ivano Somaini will present you several attack scenarios he successfully executed in real companies during his five years of Social Engineering experience. All those scenarios exceeding known approaches such as e-mail phishing by far. He will explain how even the smallest and seemingly least relevant information revealed is enough to break into financial institutions and steal industrial Know-How.
