Modern Social Engineering Webcast

Figured I'd pimp out what should be a really good webcast by Chris Nickerson and Mike Murray. They will also be doing a Social Engineering Course at the next ChicagoCon.


Webcast: Modern Social Engineering - A Vital Component of Pen Testing

eh-net_tv.jpgThe world of Information Security is changing. Budgets are tighter, attacks are more sophisticated, and the corporate network is no longer the low hanging fruit. That leaves web-enabled applications as the vector-du-jour, but that well is quickly drying up for organized crime as well. As they creep up the OSI Model looking for easier ways to steal your corporate assets, they are quickly making their way up the stack to the unspoken 8th layer, the end user. So what is the next step in the never-ending escalation of this cyber war?

To find out, we must do as Sun Tzu taught. "Think like our enemy!" That is, after all, the primary tenet of penetration testing AKA ethical hacking, isn't it? After years of hardening physical systems, networks, OSs, and applications, we have now come full circle to a new dawn of attack. People are now the target of the advanced hacker, and the cross-hairs are focused squarely on their foreheads... literally. It is only a matter of time before corporations feel the pain of wetware hacking requiring a new approach to testing and defense.

Join world-renowned social engineers, Chris Nickerson of TruTV's Tiger Team and noted expert and international speaker, Mike Murray, as they prepare you for the future of pen testing. This webcast on Tuesday March 10, 2009 at 11:00 CST is your primer to the world of "Modern Social Engineering."
