SMMUG event in Portland, ME: Confessions of a Social Engineer

September 19 @ 4:30 pm - 5:45 pm

Confessions of A Social Engineer

Your employees are an important first line of defense against a cyber-attack. Unfortunately, they are also your weakest link. Social engineers are very adept at tricking people to get what they want. Whether trying to acquire sensitive information or gain access to a restricted area, they prey on our basic human nature by building trust and confidence.

This session will educate you about the threat that social engineering poses to your organization and the types of fraud that you can expect from this type of attack. Veteran social engineer, Max Greene, will tell you stories of his experience in the field and arm you with the tools to stop and prevent these common types of attacks.

Our Subject Matter Expert: Max Greene, SEPP
Max is a Social Engineering Pentesting Professional (SEPP) and educator at Tyler Technologies. In this role, Max develops a variety of social engineering scenarios that he executes over email, by phone, and onsite. He delivers post-engagement briefings to clients where he reviews applicable findings and presents an action plan that details recommended remediation activities. Additionally, Max presents highly engaging and entertaining workforce training on topics such as cybersecurity awareness and social engineering tactics. Max is a graduate of Eckerd College.
