How to rob a bank - The Art of Social Engineering

27, Desember 2020

You do not need to have a gun or muscle gang to rob a bank! You tongue is enough!

This talk is 50% real audio from a social engineering engagement and 50% lessons learned from the call. During this call, Joshua talks a bank VP into giving up full access to his computer and eventually facilities. At one point during the call, the antivirus even triggers. This is an intense call with a ton of valuable lessons for any social engineer or defender looking to enhance tradecraft or better detect social engineering attacks.


In this talk we will go through:

- Importance of recon and how it can help in social engineering.
- How to spot the pretext.
- How to create a good pretext.
- Playing to selfish interests of the target.
- What to do when things go wrong – (During the call an antivirus triggers – very intense moment).
- The importance of never breaking cover.
- The importance of being aware of and spotting red flags.


How multiple social engineering attack vectors can be chained together for more effective social engineering engagements. And why it's important to know what information attackers can get about you and your organization and how this data can be used against your organization.


If you are working with security this is a important talk for you! This is an engaging talk that provides audience members with red and blue team social engineering strategies. Audience members will walk away better prepared to conduct social engineering assessments or defend against them.  


This talk will be held by Joshua Crumbaugh.
