Join us for a deep dive on the dark side of social engineering attacks.

The average organisation is targeted by over 700 social engineering attacks per year. Join experts from Claranet and S-RM to learn how attackers deliberately manipulate their victims, and you can build crucial defensive measures to safeguard your organisation against these attacks.

Get to grips with social engineering with Simon Kubicsek (Offensive Security Senior Manager) and Tom Kinnaird (Cybersecurity Practice Lead), as they teach you the tactics attackers use, and how you can defend yourself against them.

Join Simon and Tom on this eye-opening journey, which includes:
