In 25 years of information technology and security, I have dealt first hand with social engineering attacks, hacking, phishing, scams, and awareness training to address some of these threats. Seeing the same thing happen over and over again, tends to make one become jaded, cynical, always looking at the negative side of life, criticizing, and finding faults to make fun of, which I find myself victim to at times.
In this talk we will see that social engineering is not unique to modern times, and that the jaded feeling of spinning one's wheels is not unique to me. In fact, one of the earliest social scams is recorded in the Bible and it occurred about 4,000 years ago when between brothers (twins) from which different nations arose.
Come for an informative session on how social engineering, a old trick still have many applications in this day and age that we live in.
When not in front of a digital screen, David spends his time raising five rambunctious teenagers - including two sets of twins. His family enjoys archery, raising animals, and simply enjoying life in the Texas hill country.
