November 6th, 2018 1:00PM ET

No matter how much security technology we purchase, we still face a fundamental security problem: people. This webinar will explore the different levers that social engineers and scam artists pull to make us more likely to do their bidding.

Join us for this webinar where we'll share fun and engaging examples of mental manipulation in everyday life: from the tactics used by oily car dealers, to sophisticated social engineering and online scams. Additionally, We'll look at how to ethically use the very same levers when educating our users.

Key Takeaways:
  • The Perception Vs. Reality Dilemma
  • Understanding the OODA (Observe, Orient, Decide, Act) Loop
  • How social engineers and scam artists achieve their goals by subverting OODA Loop's different components
  • How we can defend ourselves and our organizations
