Please join your fellow ISSA Des Moines members for a chapter sponsored evening that includes complimentary cocktails, dinner, and a special speaker flown in specifically for this event! Free CPE’s! Seating is limited, so reserve your spot ASAP! (this dinner will replace the January lunch meeting).
Our guest speaker is Rachel Tobac. Rachel is the CEO of SocialProof Security where she helps people and companies keep their data safe by training and pentesting them on social engineering risks. Rachel was also a winner of DEF CON's wild spectator sport, the Social Engineering Capture the Flag contest, 3 years in a row. Rachel has shared her real life social engineering stories with NPR, Huffington Post, Business Insider, TWiT, USA Today and many more. In her remaining spare time, Rachel works as the Chair of the Board for the nonprofit Women in Security and Privacy (WISP) where she works to advance women to lead in the fields.
She'll be speaking on her nonlinear path to infosec, how she went from the neuroscience rat lab to hacking some of the largest companies in the world for a living, emerging cyber security threats, and best practices for keeping small and large business safe from human hackers like herself!
