Geek Week 2024
Sandy Springs, Georgia

Shea Nangle, the director of risk advisory services at Echelon Risk + Cyber, is set to deliver a presentation titled "Humanizing Assessment Interviews: Shifting Focus from Engineering to Social Strategies" during this year's Geek Week organized by ISACA Atlanta. The talk delves into the dynamics of assessment interviews, emphasizing the essential relationship between the assessor and the interviewee. Often perceived as adversarial, this dynamic hinders open communication and sharing of information. Nangle's presentation explores effective strategies to dismantle these barriers, drawing insights from personal experiences, law enforcement, and intelligence/counterintelligence. Attendees will gain practical techniques for establishing rapport and fostering a cooperative relationship with interviewees. Additionally, participants will be alerted to potential pitfalls in assessment interviews that may jeopardize assessor independence.
