The Social-Engineer Podcast

Welcome to the Social-Engineer Podcast: The SE Etc. Series. This series will be hosted by Chris Hadnagy, CEO of Social-Engineer LLC, and The Innocent Lives Foundation, as well as Social-Engineer.Org and The Institute for Social Engineering. Chris will be joined by his co-host Patrick Laverty as they discuss topics pertaining to the world of Social Engineering.

Today Chris and Patrick are joined by Shelby Dacko. Shelby is a Human Risk Analyst with Social‐Engineer, LLC. Her specialties include vishing, OSINT work, educational material production, and public speaking. Notably, she has made over 20,000 vishing calls in her career. She holds a Certified Ethical Social Engineer (CESE) certification and has spoken for Fortune 500 companies.

Coming from a background that includes teaching English, and interpreting American Sign Language, Shelby has always had an interest in communication. That interest led her to the Foundational Application of Social Engineering (FASE) class, which she now co-teaches with Christopher Hadnagy.

On her days off, Shelby enjoys volunteering for the Innocent Lives Foundation and painting.

Today we are joined by Andi Schmied. Andi is an urban designer and visual artist. With her installations and printed work, she explores the architectural framing of social space, and uncovers urban anomalies. These vary from areas that have deviated far from their originally planned function, utopian architectures or spaces of extreme privilege.

 

Schmied graduated as an urban designer from the Bartlett School of Architecture (UCL, London) and is currently a PhD candidate at Moholy Nagy University of Arts and Design. Her latest book, Private Views: A High-Rise Panorama of Manhattan won the first prize in visual arts category of the Most Beautiful Czech Books competition. Her work, among other places, has been shown from London to Vienna and everywhere in between. [August 14, 2023]

Today on the Social-Engineer Podcast: The Security Awareness Series, Ryan and I are joined by John Young. Like many security experts, John started out on the wrong side of the law by manipulating the AT&T phone system as a teenage phone phreak in New York City before he was scared straight by the FBI. His career started four decades ago in 1982, and by 1987 Young became the network director at McDonnell Douglas's $41.8 billion C-17 program. He eventually retired from IBM after a 30-year career in the corporate cyberwar trenches to launch his own company, CyberDef.

 

Regarded as one of America's top corporate cybersecurity experts and thought leaders, Young's published dozens of articles, appeared on countless podcasts, and is designing a video course for people based on his book so that they can thrive in cybersecurity.   [May 15, 2023]
