Layer 8 Conference is the first conference in New England that is focused on social engineering and intelligence gathering. The conference will be held on Saturday, June 8, 2019 at the Rhode Island Convention Center.
Note: This conference was formerly known as “Social Engineering – Rhode Island” or se-ri.org. The organizers decided to change its name during the 2018 conference to better reflect the goals of “Hacking the Human” and its reference to the 7 layer OSI Model, where the human is Layer 8!
Other features of the conference will include:
- A Lockpicking Village that is run by The Open Organization of Lockpickers (TOOOL) where you can learn how to pick a lock and even try it yourself!
