SkyDogCon is proud to announce that Joe Gray will be speaking at SkyDogCon 7.  Joe is a veteran of the U.S. Navy and a SANS instructor.  Who better than someone who teaches hacker techniques to speak on "Better OSINT for Better Social Engineering".  Oh, by the way, Joe WON the SECTF at DerbyCon 7.0.


Social engineering attacks remain the one of the most effective way to gain a foothold in a targeted organization. But those attacks are only as good as the information used to create them. This presentation will arm you with the latest open-source intelligence (OSINT) tools and techniques needed for gathering detailed information on your targets, turning your social engineering ops into carefully targeted precision strikes that can greatly improve your results. We'll also cover steps that you can take to reduce your own OSINT exposure, protecting you and your organization. You'll see techniques for phishing, vishing, pretexting, impersonation, and more. Tool demonstrations will include how to make the best use of OSINT Websites and standalone. There will also be a section for lessons learned in competing in the DerbyCon Social Engineering Capture the Flag (SECTF).
