Are Your Users Getting Swindled?
Tonia Dudley, CISSP, CISA | Strategic Advisor, Cofense
Abstract: By now most of us have heard or seen the latest NetFlix documentary The Tinder Swindler. Romance scams are scary and looking from the outside, we often see the obvious signs. But did you know that Business Email Compromise (BEC) is one component of an intricate crime network? This talk will provide the history of BEC, how its linked to Romance Scams and what you can do to protect your organization. We’ll even provide some tips on how to identify your family members may be caught up in this network.

What the Institutions Leave Out: Getting the full picture in a worldwide conflict.
Jon “Cochise” Buzin, Red Teamer, Managing Partner of the Neon Temple
Abstract: No matter what beliefs you hold, a lot of us can agree that the mainstream media as a whole has failed in its roles as disseminators and curators of information; journalism has gone from a process of discovery and reporting to a metaphorical TLS star cert. The media can choose what to report, but they have also used much of their discretion in what NOT to report too. This discussion is not an attack on the media (as much as they deserve it) so much as an opportunity to learn about rolling your own first-hand sources and using every tool at your disposal to find out actual situations. Join Cochise as we spend some time learning about global forms of social media and documentation to avoid getting gate-kept.
