Dec0ding Humans Live - Chris Hadnagy Derbycon 2015 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Dec0ding Humans Live
Chris Hadnagy
Derbycon 2015

Research says that much of what we communicate is nonverbal. While we've not found the human equivalent of a lie detector there are indicators of facial muscular movement, gestures, voice and speech that uncover ‰ÛÏhot spots,‰Û or signs that something is amiss; that the full story is not being told. Typical hot spots are momentary conflicts between the words spoken and the sound of the voice, the gesture, or the facial expression. Body language is vital for social engineers in order to understand what is communicated without words and gives the power to understand emotions regardless of what an individual says. This talk will provide an in-depth analysis of body language of a real and controversial news event selected one week prior to the conference. Live on stage, the HumanHacker will identify signs of comfort, discomfort, deception and confidence that will reveal what people are REALLY saying.

Chris Hadnagy is the founder and CEO of Social-Engineer, Inc. Chris possesses over 16 years experience as a practitioner and researcher in the security field. His efforts in training, education, and awareness have helped to expose social engineering as the top threat to the security of organizations today. Chris established the world's first social engineering framework at www.social-engineer.org, providing an invaluable repository of information for security professionals and enthusiasts. That site grew into a dynamic web resource including a podcast and newsletter, which have become staples in the security industry and are referenced by large organizations around the world. Chris also created the first hands-on social engineering training course and certification, Advanced Practical Social Engineering, attended by law enforcement, military, and private sector professionals. A sought-after writer and speaker, Chris has spoken and trained at events such as RSA, Black Hat, and various presentations for corporate and government clients. Chris is also the best-selling author of three books; Social Engineering: The Art of Human Hacking and Unmasking the Social Engineer: The Human Element of Security and Phishing Dark Waters: The Offensive & Defensive Side of Malicious emails.
