Tech Segment: Kati Rodzon & Mike Murray of MAD Security on Social Engineering War Stories
Social Engineering War Stories
Social engineering is the art of coercing -let face it manipulating- someone into giving you information, allowing you access, or doing something for you. It's basically the art of behavior modification and moment-to-moment training.
Fresh off of a physical penetration test for a major company, Michael and Kati will talk about the psychological techniques that do and do not work. When is it time to blend it? When is it time to stand out? What patterns of behavior can be used to your advantage?
Many of the techniques talked about are taken from basic social psychology as well as behavior analysis and modification theory. Even though these topics are traditionally small scale, Michael and Kati will discuss how they are applied on a larger scale in a pentest.
- We are in the process of archiving and cataloging our technical segments, please visit the PaulDotCom Technical Library and we indexed all of the interviews we have conducted. Also, please follow us on Google+ The PaulDotCom Google+ Community, The PaulDotCom Google+ Page and Paul's Google+ Page.
