TechXChange: The art of manipulation

WITWA Diversity Champion marks IWD2019

What if we told you that hacking wasn't all about computers, dark rooms and black hoodies? That instead of infiltrating networks and stealing credentials, there was a way to hack humans instead? Welcome to the world of social engineering - a discipline that uses charm, manipulation and deceit to gain access to secure systems and sensitive information.

Our next TecXChange Networking event will be held on Wednesday 3 April and hosted by event partners Woodside Energy.

Cyber Security Risk Advisor and WiTWA 20in20 Award Winner Cairo Malet will take us through what a social engineer does, the tools and attacks they use to get into systems (and our heads!), and how an awareness of these techniques can be used to build better, more secure organisations. Cairo’s presentation will be followed by a lively panel discussion. Registration is now open and a limited number of free sponsored tickets are available thanks to the support of the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science.

To celebrate International Women’s Day 2019 we are thrilled to unveil our Diversity Champion Program.

Be listed on our Inspiring Role Models page as a supporter of diversity and equality to lighthouse your role in enabling positive change. You will also receive our Diversity Champion badge for use on your website and social media.

Our Diversity Champion Program is intended as another easy mechanism through which to enable our supporters and champions to demonstrate their commitment to the WITWA 2019 theme “If you can see her, you can be her”.
