Advanced Social Engineering and OSINT for Penetration Testing
Today, we keep hearing about massive data breaches and companies being hacked. While some of the bigger breaches do not have a Social Engineering angle, many do and do not even know it! The presentation will provide attendees with advanced tools and techniques to use in penetration testing to help save them plenty of time in data gathering and increase the success rate of phishing and pretexting. The goal of a penetration test is to gain access, the techniques in this presentation and demonstration will help take your penetration tests to the next level. Also discussed are the ethical considerations of OSINT and Social Engineering as well as how to train users to prevent these attacks from happening.
