Social Engineering - a self-defence workshop

  • Facebook 4 Grand Canal Square Dublin, County Dublin Ireland (map)

Have you ever come across a phishing email trying to gain access to your account? What about a phone call from a hacker looking for a wire transfer?

Rachel Tobac executes these attacks for a living! But she's not a criminal, she's a white hat hacker -- launching successful social engineering attacks to train others on the up-to-date methods criminals use to gain access to your money, data, or systems, before the bad guys get there first.

Rachel's fun and fast-paced hacker stories from the field will arm you with current examples of real attacks and the skills, scripts, and best practices to catch hackers like her in the act.

About Rachel: Rachel is the CEO of SocialProof Security where she helps people and companies keep their data safe by training and pentesting them on social engineering risks. Rachel was also a winner of DEF CON's wild spectator sport, the Social Engineering Capture the Flag contest, 3 years in a row. Rachel has shared her real life social engineering stories with NPR, Huffington Post, Business Insider, CNN, USA Today and many more. In her remaining spare time, Rachel works as the Chair of the Board for the nonprofit Women in Security and Privacy (WISP) where she works to advance women to lead in the fields.
