The SE-Conference is open to the public and presentations will be geared from novice to expert. The conference does not require a cyber security or information technology background. It will address social engineering from multiple perspectives.

Social engineering, in the context of information security, refers to psychological manipulation of people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. A type of confidence trick for the purpose of information gathering, fraud, or system access, it differs from a traditional "con" in that it is often one of many steps in a more complex fraud scheme.[1]

The NJ Chapter of (ISC)2, friends and sponsoring NY/NJ/CT Metro are associations are excited to present leading edge insights, discussion and exchange of innovative, future focused ideas and solutions to address technical and business related social engineering.

The high-quality program offers prevention, detection, mitigation, response and recovery educational programs for emerging issues facing today’s businesses, governments, educators, and cyber security practitioners.

The best of frameworks, devices, and applications can be compromised if the people managing and using them are, this conference is to highlight how easily people can be manipulated and how to avoid falling prey.
