Workshop Title: Social Engineering: AI and Current Trends

Date: Monday, 20 May 2024

Social engineering remains one of the most potent and pervasive threats. However, the landscape of social engineering is rapidly evolving, thanks to the integration of Artificial Intelligence technologies. It's therefore crucial to understand how AI is reshaping the tactics and strategies employed by malicious actors.

The presentation aims to give the starting point to staying ahead of the curve by understanding these emerging threats and developing proactive defence strategies. Moreover, by leveraging AI ourselves, we can augment our cybersecurity efforts, utilizing machine learning algorithms to detect and combat social engineering attacks before they inflict harm.
