Title: Bias, Conformance, and Hypnosis: Psychological Tricks to Hack the Mind for Social Engineering

Speaker: Dr. Chris Hazard



Dr. Chris Hazard


Individuals leave a wake of information in their trails and increase the attack surface of an organization via their own psychology.  Dr. Hazard will discuss and demonstrate various ways to build and exploit trust, leverage bias and confidence, and exploit psychological tricks and tradecraft knowledge that attackers can use when attempting to gain unauthorized access via social engineering.  He will also discuss reasonable steps that organizations can defend against these techniques and insider threats while minimizing paranoia.


Dr. Christopher Hazard is the CEO and founder of Hazardous Software where he designed and created the Resequence Engine, which is widely considered to be a disruptive technology for strategy-level serious gaming.  He holds a PhD in computer science from North Carolina State University in artificial intelligence, specifically on the science and mathematics of building, measuring, and exploiting trust and reputation systems.  Dr. Hazard has consulted for many organizations on serious games, been a software architect of CDMA infrastructure at Motorola, and worked on robot coordination and supply chain management at Kiva Systems (now Amazon Robotics) and North Carolina State University.  He has lead serious gaming projects related to cyber security, logistics, economics, and psychology, and is a certified hypnotist.  Dr. Hazard is also known for his 2011 game Achron, which won GameSpot's Best Original Game Mechanic award, and for his research on game design, AI, and human-computer interaction, for which he has given keynote speeches at major conferences and been featured in mainstream media.
