Event description
In this class I will introduce you to the world of social engineering, show you what it is, how it works, why it works and what we can do.

About this Event

I designed the lessons and content that I will provide over the next 3 hours to maximize your comprehension and retention by constantly framing the videos in a way that makes this information relevant and actionable. This class will be useful to those of you who want to learn practical social engineering skills as well as to those of you who are taking this to gain a higher level of awareness of this skillset.

Here’s what's on our agenda:

What is SE? In this module, I will define what social engineering is and what it’s not.

Foundations. In this module I give you my recommended starting point for anyone who wants to get a deeper understanding of social engineering.

Vectors. Here we lay out the most common attacks used and we put them under our microscope to break each one down in detail.

Why they work. In this module we take a look at the principles of influence and expand our understanding of the psychology that makes SE such a powerful tool.

OSINT. Open source intelligence is the first skillset we will learn. OSINT is the first step in any campaign, be it a technical attack or through social engineering. Well begun is half done, and your OSINT is how we start building our picture of the target.

Soft Skills. SE isn’t just phishing emails or compliance tactics. Communication skills, rapport building techniques, active listening. These are important not only to the social engineer, but to everyone.

Non-verbals. More information is being transmitted through paralanguage, aka non-verbals, than from the actual words being spoken. We will look at some myths regarding body language, learn to spot important tells, and dip our toes in the world of microexpressions.

Pretexts. The pretext is the character or persona the social engineer adopts. We will look at how to pick the best pretexts, how to develop them and some common mistakes.

Socks. Not the kind for your feet. Here we explore the world of sock puppets. We’ll define what a sock puppet is, how to spot one, and how to set up and maintain your own.

GOPhish. This next module is our first technical walkthrough. Now that we built our foundation we can move on to application. We’ll cover getting GOPhish installed and setup and how to get started with the first of the SE tools we’ll cover in this course.

SET. The Social Engineering Toolkit is the OG and no SE course would be complete without a thorough overview.

King phisher. We then wrap up our tooling exploration with King phisher. The goal in this section is to give you a springboard to get started utilizing the common tools in this arena, or give you the technical understanding to defend better against them at your organization.

Physical SE. How to do the thing in person. We cover tailgating, shoulder surfing, dumpster diving, and impersonation.

SE tools. I will show you all the things the successful social engineer should have in their tool bag including props, disguises, and deploying technical tools such as hardware keyloggers or remote access tools.

Advanced study. This module will cover next steps for those who want to take their understanding of social engineering to the next level. I recommend the books, classes and training needed to become an elite social engineer.
