Jenny Radcliffe

“The People Hacker”,

Jenny Radcliffe  - aka “The People Hacker” - is a force to be reckoned with. She can diffuse a crisis situation, talk her way into a secure building and spot a psychopath at a hundred paces. She has been called a mind reader and a ‘human lie detector’, and likened to a Jedi Knight.

In reality, she is an expert in Social Engineering (the human element of security), negotiations, non-verbal communication and deception, using her skills to help clients from corporations and law enforcement, to poker players, politicians and the security industry.

Jenny speaks, consults and trains people in the skills of “people hacking” and explains how “Social Engineering” using psychological methods can be a huge threat to organisations of all sizes.  She reveals how that same knowledge is a valuable tool for security professionals of all types in the prevention of these attacks, scams and cons of all kinds.

Using a mixture of scams, psychological tactics, advanced profiling and non verbal communication skills, Jenny highlights how criminals, special interest groups  and others with mal-intent, can talk or trick their way into gaining access to  personnel, buildings and confidential information.

Using a blend of anecdotes, science and humour, Jenny is an exceptional and highly impactful speaker.  A regular keynote at major security events (Infosec, Rant, DISA, Nordic IT Security, ICS2, Trend Micro, Cisco, NTT, Bright talk, Cyber Security Week) and multiple TEDx contributor, Jenny has been a guest expert on security, scams and social engineering for various television and radio shows as well as online media.

Jenny is also the host of the podcast “The Human Factor” interviewing Industry Leaders, Bloggers, experts and fellow Social Engineers, about the human factor of security.
