The Unpatchable Element

Think Tank - 11:15 am - 11:40 am

We have become extremely good mitigating technical attacks on systems by implementing numerous technology-based countermeasures. 

As a result, attackers are shifting their focus and are increasingly targeting people through the use of social engineering methods, often with some success by getting unnoticed access to computer systems and sensitive data. 

An atacker may have to invest a lot of timet in breaking a system, but it would be much easier to persuade a person to allow admittance to a secure area or even to disclose confidential information. 

Takeaways: 

  1. Social Engineering gets hidden in the closet as a "taboo" subject, whereas the fact is that no matter who a person is, he / she is susceptible to a Social Engineering attack. 
  2. We should never forget the Human Factor in CyberSecurity
