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 once again 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.
