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), negotiation, persuasion and influence, and non-verbal communication, and deception—using her skills to help clients ranging from global corporations and law enforcement organisations to poker players, politicians, and the security industry. Exclusively represented by Leading Authorities International speakers bureau, Radcliffe is an impactful speaker who uses a combination of anecdotes, science, and humour to share lessons that help executives better read people and understand social clues, use subtle tactics to persuade others during negotiations, open up avenues of conversation that were formerly shut, and understand and protect against their own vulnerabilities.

Radcliffe 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 not only for business executives but also for security professionals of all types working to prevent attacks, scams, and cons of all kinds. Jenny shares how she, without technology, uses the “machine between our ears” to “psychologically pen-test” companies and find the weaknesses in their security measures with the goal of helping them bolster their human defenses against future attacks.

A regular keynote speaker at major security events—including Infosec, Rant, DISA, Nordic IT Security, ICS2, Trend Micro, Cisco, NTT, Bright talk, and Cyber Security Week—and a multiple-time TEDx contributor, Radcliffe has been a guest expert on security, scams, and social engineering for various television and radio shows as well as online media. She originally got involved in the sector when she was approached to do some penetration testing by a private security firm who needed a social engineer to talk their way into a bank. She has been working in management training and consultancy for over a decade.

Jenny is the host of the internationally successful podcast, “The Human Factor”, where she interviews people from all walks of life about social engineering, security, business, and life.
