Spear Phishing: From Linkedin to Loggedin

Spear phishing is on the rise, and the more our lives are displayed online, the more information a hacker has to target us. This talk will describe our journey for a spear phishing attack, detailing how to pick and research vulnerable targets via social media, and then how to construct emails based on the information discovered.

We will use real-life case studies from social engineering engagements, supported with statistics from the attacks and the resulting real-world consequences.

After this talk attendees will understand:

The effectiveness of social media in planning spear phishing attacks
How to recognise common spear phishing attack vectors
How to protect themselves and their organisation against spear phishing
