Jenny Radcliffe On Hacking & Fear

Jenny Radcliffe On Hacking & Fear


Jenny Radcliffe, a social engineer known as "The People Hacker," tells us what it takes to hack a human.

In this video, she shares her confessions as a people hacker—using human behavior, emotion, and fear to get past and get in and to manipulate people. She hilariously describes brilliant tactics on how even the most aware people can be tricked into becoming victims of hacking, using behavioral science to help us better understand security and scams.

Jenny Radcliffe—aka “The People Hacker”— 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, 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, non-verbal communication, and deception—using her skills to help clients ranging from global corporations and law enforcement organizations to poker players, politicians, and the security industry. Radcliffe is an impactful speaker who combines anecdotes, science, and humor 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.
