Colin Hadnagy

Colin Hadnagy is a Human Risk Analyst for Social-Engineer, LLC. His interests include Open-Source Intelligence gathering (OSINT), and the physical aspects of penetration testing. He also demonstrates lock picking and handcuff shimming at various conferences, and he’d be very happy to teach you. Colin’s early roots with the company beginning in 2015, give him the unique perspective of seeing both the growth and changes in the company and the industry.

Colin is constantly trying to learn new things, and to use new techniques from the best of the best. He weaponizes niceness and endeavors to fit as much truth as possible into his social-engineering style. Communications and profiling are an aspect he looks to expand on in the near future.
