Psychology of a Social Engineering Attack

Wednesday, February 21st I 2:00 PM CET


Social Engineering attacks, in the form of phishing, BEC, and Ransomware attacks are becoming ever more commonplace. The number of cyberattacks that start by manipulating a human into allowing access to protected systems or sensitive information steadily increasing.

And a large part is due to the way we, humans, are programmed to operate. It is the power of our own minds that is at the root cause of this problem.

In this talk, Jelle Wieringa, Security Awareness Advocate at KnowBe4, helps you better understand how cybercriminals leverage the power of your own mind to make you do their bidding. And how a better understanding of yourself can help to better protect against this.

Get actionable insights on:

  • The tricks cybercriminals use to manipulate you
  • How psychology plays a vital role in social engineering
  • How to better protect yourself
