What is Social Engineering for the Blue Team?

In this building better relationships edition of the Exploring Information Security podcast, I discuss my new presentation and workshop content for this year, Social Engineering for the Blue Team.

I've already written a couple blog posts on the topic:

I've also created a GitHub page to track all my resources I intend to use in the presentation and training. The idea of the content is that we can use social engineering (like the red team) in our day-to-day interactions at work. We can use the same techniques to build better relationships and build better security mindsets in our organization. If you prefer soft skills.

In this episode I discuss:

  • What is social engineering for the blue team
  • How I came up with the idea
  • How can this be applied
  • What techniques we can use to build better relationships
