Let’s Talk about Social Engineering
Ellen Cram Kowalczyk, Microsoft

Let’s talk about Social Engineering. What works and what doesn’t. Why are some more susceptible than others. Could it be the cute cat pictures? Well, the internet was created by and for cats, right? Let’s talk about the traps that we sometimes fall into when trying to drive security into organizations and groups. What can we do differently, besides giving up to all the cats? BSidesChicago is a purrfect place to socialize and chat about it.
