Psychology of the Phish: Leveraging the Seven Principles of Influence
Fri, October 30, 2020 4:40 PM - 5:30 PM

Learning Objective:

• Understand how phishers leverage psychology; by understanding the mind of the attacker, we can devise better protections for our environments 
• Identify multiple security controls to combat phishing, leveraging the concept of Defense in Depth 
• Learn from my mistakes and lessons learned


According to the X-Force Threat Intelligence Index 2020, produced by IBM X-Force Incident Response and Intelligence Services, phishing is still the number one attack vector in use today. Security professionals often overlook the "social" aspect of "social engineering", focusing on tool deployment instead. The success of phishing is predicated on exploiting normal human behavior for nefarious purposes. This session looks at phishing through this psychological lens, specifically on how the Seven Principles of Influence as expounded by Robert Cialdini are leveraged by attackers. 

Session includes the following: 

  • Why phishing is popular 
  • Seven principles of influence 
  • How phishers exploit psychology 
  • Security controls against phishing 
  • Tales from the trenches - real-life phishing anecdotes from my experience
