People give little thought to the "scraps" of information that they leave scattered around the web. Even worse, when an attacker approaches them and uses these bits of information against them, they fall for it too often. In this talk, we teach how to use the internet and freely available information to craft perfect social engineering attacks. We have used these very tactics to compromise employees as high-level as corporate VPs with 2FA in place! After showing how to create these social engineering scenarios and dupe victims, we show how security professionals can train their clients to beware of the data they leave so that they are aware of attackers intents. After all, changing the tide is what it's all about. Attendees will take away: a better understanding of where and how to find intel for social engineering, tactics for creating scenarios that seem super legitimate, and tips for training their clients post-engagement how to not repeat the same mistakes.
