Social Engineering Village


Social Engineering Village is an event to understand and apply hands-on the techniques of Social Engineering and is aimed towards security enthusiasts and professionals alike. It would consist of various challenges that cover all major attributes that Social Engineering involves today. Participants will be given a target and set of required flags (required piece of information) and allowed to use their systems and resources to perform extensive reconnaissance on the target. This will be followed by live calls and physical pen testing challenges to obtain the final set of flags. Hence, it would be a complete village for Social Engineering with hands-on flag capture techniques for participants to exploit and win.
