The Pirate Queen’s Techniques to Social Engineer Her Targets (and how you can do it too):
You can have great firewalls, IPS/IDS, have your perimeter locked down, your web applications secured but it doesn’t stand a chance against social engineering tactics of Grace O’Malley; Sharka’s social engineering alter ego and pirate queen from the 16th century!
Sharka describes how she uses facial expressions, body language, Chinese medicine, the whole psychology behind influence and persuasion to manipulate targets into believing her pretext and comply with her (evil) plans.
She explains what are some of the behaviors and pretexts to avoid and will step over to the defensive side to defend against the attacks she described.
The Many Hats Club is an information security focused group of individuals from all walks of life. They offer the infosec community a place to share ideas, learn, build new connections, and have open conversations with a vast cross-section of the global community. No matter your experience, as long as you have a passion for everything infosec you will find a warm welcome there.
