This is a three day adaptation of the very popular 5-day course, "Social Engineering for Penetration Testers". In this 3-day class the focus is on the psychology of social engineering more than the tools involved.
This is a very hands on class where we will cover all the ways to build rapport, elicit information and read nonverbal body language. The tools given to the students will enhance their ability to communicate effectively and get the most from your interactions whether that is with your boss, fellow employees or suspects.
We will cover:
- Personality Assessments
- Rapport Building
- Information Gathering
Each day will involve homework in the evening that will help you hone your skills and practice the lessons of the day.
Each student will need to bring a laptop, although there is limited usage in this class, it is important to have the laptop for day 2 and 3.
In addition, the student will need to devote time in the evening to be part of team exercises.

Chris Hadnagy, aka loganWHD presently focuses on the "human" aspect of technology such as social engineering and physical security. Chris has spent time in providing training in many topics around the globe and also has had many articles published in local, national and international magazines and journals.
Chris is an student of Paul Ekman's training classes on Microexpressions and has spent time learning and educating others on the values of nonverbal communications. He is also the lead developer of Social-Engineer.Org as well as a the author of the best-selling book, Social Engineering: The Art of Human Hacking.
He has launched a line of professional social engineering training and pen testing services at Social-Engineer.Com. His goal is to help companies remain secure by educating them on the methods the "bad guys" use. Analyzing, studying, dissecting then performing the very same attacks used by malicious hackers on some of the most recent attacks (i.e. Sony, HB Gary, LockHeed Martin, etc), Chris is able to help companies stay educated and secure.
Chris runs one of the web's most successful security podcasts, The Social-Engineer.Org Podcast which spends time each monthly analyzing someone who has to use influence and persuasion in their daily lives. By dissecting what they do, we can learn how we can enhance our abilities. That same analysis runs over to the equally popular SEORG Newsletter. After two years, both of these have become a staple in most serious security practices and are used by Fortune 500 companies around the world to educate their staff.
