Description

About the lecture

Social engineering (also called "Human Hacking") is an essential tool in every computer hacker's toolkit. Yet its origins extend long before the digital age. This talk explores the evolution of this concept from its origins in public policy to its current application to cybersecurity. Dr. Hatfield's research includes interviews with famous hackers and offers a framework within which social engineering attacks can best be understood.

This event is sponsored by IWP's Cyber Intelligence Initiative.
