Jenny Radcliffe | The Human Factor – James Gosnold

The Human Factor – James Gosnold

Join Jenny as she interviews James Gosnold about his fascinating career in security and beyond, including his years as a professional fruit machine player!  They talk about bringing other disciplines into security, the importance of understanding why people do what they do and about James’ brilliant book “The Magic Zablet.”  James wrote the book for his daughters but the lessons, explanations and warnings it contains are excellent for people of all ages wondering about the dangers and opportunities of  cyberspace.  Thanks for a brilliant interview James!

Jenny Radcliffe

I am an expert in the psychology and tactics behind Social Engineering attacks, as well as negotiations, nonverbal communication and deception. I have a strong academic and corporate background, and was a senior procurement leader before becoming a consultant and trainer in both negotiation and procurement strategy and skills. I lecture at several business schools at Masters level in many business topics and am a guest lecturer in both security and procurement disciplines. I help clients in different ways from psychological pen-testing, to breaking security systems, from coaching and training, to strategic assignments, crisis situations and professional investigative work. I can assist with leading negotiations on behalf of clients or coaching individuals and teams to excel in this area. I am a professional speaker, and appear regularly at conferences, webinars and company events,(Rant, InfoSec, Disa, NordicIT) and I talk about how “people hacking” using psychological methods can be a huge threat to organisations of all sizes. I help security teams and professionals to use the tools of human hackers to enhance awareness campaigns, persuade and influence their stakeholders and understand how culture contributes to organisational vulnerability. I offer consultancy, training and coaching services ranging from skills assessments and corporate psychological profiling, to masterclasses in all of my areas of expertise including non-verbal communications, lie detection, social engineering, rapid rapport building and public speaking.
