International Keynote Address 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 talk will explore the different levers that social engineers and scam artists pull to make us more likely to do their bidding. Perry Carpenter will 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, he will look at how to ethically use the very same levers when educating your users:

  • The perception vs. reality dilemma
  • Understanding the OODA (Observe, Orient, Decide, Act) Loop
  • How social engineers and scam artists achieve their goals by subverting the OODA Loop's different components
  • How we can defend ourselves and our organisations
