Colin Tansley, a career investigator, former police office and now MD of Intelect Group will explore the tactics that cyber criminals are now employing to gain access to your data. Using real life examples, Colin will focus on social engineering; the art of exploiting human psychology, rather than technical hacking techniques, to gain access to buildings, systems or data and arm you with the knowledge to spot the signs so that you can keep both your personal data and company data secure.
