Layer 8 Conference 2020: Saturday June 6, 2020, RI Convention Center
The Layer 8 conference is the only one that is solely dedicated to social engineering and open source intelligence (OSINT) discussions. We have two tracks of presentations on these topics from world-renowned social engineers and investigators.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization!
Also in 2019, we had:
- Lockpicking Village run by The Open Organization of Lockpickers (TOOOL) where you can learn how to pick a lock and even try it yourself!
- OSINT Village run by Trace Labs and in partnership with the RI State Police where we will use OSINT skills to locate missing persons.
- Mental Health Hackers Village with its own track of talks and tips on improving mental and physical health. Plus free massages!!
- Training! Social Engineering and Open Source Intelligence Workshop with world-class instructor Joe (@C_3PJoe) Gray on Friday, June 7th.
- Diversity sponsorships for speakers, provided by Mimecast!
- A two-hour improv workshop run by the Providence Improv Group to help social engineers work on their improvisational skills.

Note: This conference was formerly known as “Social Engineering – Rhode Island” or se-ri.org. The change was made during the 2018 conference to better reflect the goals of “Hacking the Human” and its reference to the 7 layer OSI Model, where the human is Layer 8!
