Radcliffe has been recognized for her lifetime work in identifying and fixing human-centered security vulnerabilities. Radcliffe is the founder and director at Human Factor Security. This company aims to identify and fix security weaknesses within organizations.
During the keynote session, her presentation, “Facta non Verba – Six Life Lesons from a Sociologist”, will focus on her work in social engineering and infiltration and provide insights into the future of the information security industry.
Radcliffe said: “It is a tremendous honor. It feels like the human aspect of cybersecurity is being acknowledged as much as I am. The inclusion of social engineering in a mostly technical Hall of Fame demonstrates that the industry recognizes the value of working with people. The profession is on the rise, and there are many new people who bring their own talents, skills, and life experiences to it. That’s what’s most important. It doesn’t matter if you are trying to be like me or someone else. We need genuine people who care about one thing: keeping people safe.
Infosec is something I look forward to every day. It’s a wonderful opportunity to meet people from the industry and reconnect, and learn about the current issues and trends. More people than ever are eager to attend this year’s event and see all the sights, as well as to get to know everyone. It’s something very special.”
Nicole Mills, Infosecurity Group’s exhibition director, stated that Jenny’s philosophy perfectly captures the theme of Infosecurity Europe 2022: Stronger Together. Cyber-attacks are largely human. Many breaches begin with people who are more involved in security. We can counter threats only if we are people-centric and collaborate. This is why Jenny was chosen to be in our Hall of Fame. Jenny’s vision and energy have made a significant contribution to the industry. Her work is now more important and vital than ever.”
