Social Engineering

95% of cyber-attacks start with social engineering.

Optimising IT’s Head of Consultancy, Todd Gifford (CISSP), will be discussing Social Engineering, how it’s used to commit cybercrime and why it works by delving into the hacker mindset. Todd will take you through a cybercrime case study and you’ll learn how to identify cyber vulnerabilities in your supply chain.

Free breakfast and refreshments are provided with the chance to network with your peers in an open and friendly environment.
