The mind’s lie: How our thoughts and actions can be hacked and hijacked 
Perry Carpenter, Chief Evangelist and Strategy Officer, KnowBe4 

Discover the art and science behind deception… and why you may still fall for dirty tricks even after you understand how they work. From the slight-of-hand used by magicians to the slight-of-tongue used for social engineering, we are all wired to deceive and to be deceived. See how threat actors use these techniques against your users and how security awareness training can help them spot deceptions before it’s too late. 

Join Perry Carpenter, KnowBe4’s CSO, as he shows you how easily we can be deceived and how that relates to our understanding of social engineering scams that come our way. During this intriguing session, Perry will share his insights into the answers to these questions: 

  • Are we wired for deception? 
  • Why are some more susceptible to manipulation than others? 
  • How do hackers use these techniques to create scenarios to entrap your employees? 
  • How can you ethically leverage these techniques to bring about desired behavior change?

Andrew Costis, Senior Cyber Threat Consultant, EMEA,  AttackIQ 

New and emerging threats in the form of malware are prolific in our industry today. Malware analysis is a great skill for threat researchers, SOC analysts and incident responders to possess.

Malware analysis is highly advantageous and can aid with purple teaming, continuous security control validation and ultimately improve your overall security and defensive capabilities within your organization and beyond.   

Attend this session to learn:  

  • The who, what, where, when and why of malware analysis 
  • A walk through the recent DarkSide ransomware that impacted the Colonial Pipeline  
  • How malware analysis can drive collaboration to adopt a purple teaming strategy 
  • How malware analysis can drive continuous security control validation and beyond
