Why Social Engineering is BS
Social engineering is involved in most 'hacks', with phishing the number one threat to organizations. In this keynote, Dr. Jessica Barker explores the psychology, neuroscience, and sociology of scams.

She explores the emotional bait that criminals use to manipulate us and the human biases that make us all vulnerable. Using real-world examples of phishing emails, messages, and calls, Jessica walks through how criminals push the emotional buttons of their targets and get us to click before we think.

Participants leave with a greater awareness of how and why we are manipulated, helping them spot scams and be more vigilant against cybercrime.

Why Culture is Key to Cyber Security
Cyber security culture eats breaches for breakfast. In this session, Dr. Jessica Barker explains what this really means: what actually is security culture and why is it so important?

Jessica makes cyber security culture real: it is not something intangible but rather something that we can define, understand, measure, and influence. She explains why it is the foundation of an organization's security posture.

Participants leave this session with a greater understanding not only of what culture is but also of how they can play a part in building a positive security culture. Jessica shares practical advice to help everyone stay safe online at home as well as at work.

How a Hack Works: Demonstrating a Phishing Attack
Year after year, phishing attacks keep on growing. It is now the biggest online threat to organizations. This session brings the who, how, and why of phishing to life.

Dr. Jessica Barker explores how phishing attacks work, the human factors behind them, and what we can do to mitigate them.

Including a demonstration of a spear-phishing email attack (from the attacker and victim side), participants leave with an insight into the reality of cyber insecurity and both the human and technical elements at play. This session can be delivered in partnership with FC.
