 Our Review

The concept “social engineering” refers to a wide variety of harmful practices carried out through human interactions. It employs psychological tricks to persuade users to make security errors or divulge confidential details. Social engineering attacks are carried out in a series of steps. For electronic warfare/cyber security organizations, SCADA/ICS systems are a major source of concern. For a variety of reasons, these systems are especially vulnerable, including— but not limited to—the fact that many SCADA/ICS organizations have relied on protection by obscurity for so long. These industrial control systems are vital to a country’s infrastructure and, by extension, its economy. We’ll show you how to locate, hack, and monitor these systems in this section. For those with an interest in Social Engineering and SCADA/ICS systems, this webinar, organized by the fine folks at SmartGrid would be ideal, not least when you are looking for a job in Cybersecurity.

Conference Event Summary

The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Friday, April 23rd 2021, or created by us.

Optimizing employee cyber awareness programs to build a robust human firewall against power grid cybercriminals

Webinar: 16:00-17:00 CET
Wednesday 26th May 2021

CrowdCast Platform

It is estimated that 98% of cyberattacks are launched using social engineering techniques to gather intelligence, gain access to critical information systems, and target exploits where they will hurt an organization the most.

In this 60-minute webinar, we deep-dive into the social engineering techniques being used against power grid workforces and determine how these are likely to evolve in the next 2-3 years. We review a range of cyber awareness programs, cyber hygiene approaches, and incident response strategies that are helping proactive power grid cybersecurity leads to outsmart and thwart the social engineers’ efforts.
