 Our Review

The Layer 8 conference is one of the rare gatherings dedicated entirely to open-source intelligence (OSINT) and social engineering talks. Two tracks of talks on these issues will be given by world-renowned investigators and social engineers during the conference. Highly recommended especially if you work in the Social Engineering space and/or are a Penetration Tester.

Conference Event Summary

The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Thursday, July 8th 2021, or created by us.

The Layer 8 conference is one of the few events that is solely dedicated to open-source intelligence (OSINT) discussions and social engineering. The conference has two tracks of presentations on these topics from world-renowned investigators and social engineers.

Layer 8 Conference is an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Why Layer 8?

It comes from the OSI Model of networking. The OSI Model has 7 layers from the physical at layer 1, to the application at layer 7. We feel that when you go beyond this, the next layer of interaction is with the human. Since social engineering and OSINT is about the human, this would be Layer 8!
