||Welcome & Introduction
||"Stealing Calm and Channelling Fear in modern Social Engineering"
In this talk, Jenny Radcliffe discusses how negative psychology is at the heart of
malicious social engineering. She discusses how the principles of deployed in ancient occult practices are still
used today to manipulate the emotions of potential targets. The talk looks at the different "tribes" within
organisations, and how cognitive bias and psychological factors can contribute to attacks on organizations and
individuals, and what might be done to overcome them.
The talk covers the use of fear as a weapon in people-based attacks and explains how an
understanding of the mechanics of this often misunderstood principle emotion, is as essential in modern times as it
always has been, in defending against malicious social engineering in all its forms.

||Q&A and Discussion
||"Lessons from a red team exercise"
Rob shares how a red team exercise for a large organisation simulates a real-world criminal
attack under controlled conditions. Rob will introduce his talk with the words "The story you are about to hear is
true; only the names have been changed to protect the vulnerable". Ethical hackers from First Base Technologies
conduct red team tests to help organisations understand where they are vulnerable to advanced attacks. This presentation
describes each step of a real-world exercise: planning and recon, spear phishing, telephone social engineering, building
access, network exploitation and data exfiltration. As the story develops, you will discover how an attacker thinks,
why they choose a particular strategy and what you can do to minimise your organisation's vulnerability to advanced threats.
