We all know a business’ cybersecurity is only as strong as its people. And that’s where Jenny Radcliffe comes in.
Known as the People Hacker, Jenny is a psychologist and social engineer who helps her clients assess their security by breaking into their organisations, often without technology.
In the very first episode of Phishy Business, we discuss:
- Stories of Jenny’s work in physical penetration testing, including her strangest break-ins and some close calls with the law
- How a childhood kidnapping experience shaped Jenny’s career
- How you can learn the trade without becoming a criminal yourself
- Ways for businesses to work with their people to stay secure
Jenny is clear that victims of cybercrime certainly aren’t stupid – and it’s up to businesses to put the technology and communication in place to keep people and systems safe.
