Jenny Radcliffe - aka "The People Hacker"
Jenny Radcliffe is a force to be reckoned with. She can diffuse a crisis situation, talk her way into a secure building and spot a psychopath at a hundred paces. She has been called a mind reader and a 'human lie detector', and likened to a Jedi Knight. In reality, she is an expert in Social Engineering (the human element of security), negotiations, non-verbal communication and deception, using her skills to help clients from corporations and law enforcement, to poker players, politicians and the security industry.
Jenny speaks, consults and trains people in the skills of "people hacking" and explains how "Social Engineering" using psychological methods can be a huge threat to organisations of all sizes. She reveals how that same knowledge is a valuable tool for security professionals of all types in the prevention of these attacks, scams and cons of all kinds.
Jenny is also the host of the podcast "The Human Factor" interviewing Industry Leaders, Bloggers, experts and fellow Social Engineers, about the human factor of security.
