10:45 "Keep your friends close and your Enemies Closer: Social Engineering, Insider Threats and Smiling Assassins"

In this talk Jenny Radcliffe discusses how Social Engineering can manifest from within an organization rather than as a result of an external threat. She talks about what can make a normal employee "turn" and become a risk to an organization whether through mistake, malice or mischief.

She links cultural factors and understanding how people think and work to growing insider threats and gives advice on how to prevent, mitigate and manage the problem from a practical perspective.

11:30 "ELK, Desperately Seeking Ashley"

We'll spend some time enjoying each other's company and playfully discuss adult dating website data dumps. My collected data is well-endowed, and some might even say it's big. If we get along I'll show you just how I can take control, with elasticsearch, and index Ashley Madison and AdultFriendFinder data dumps, I can just visualise it all. After that, we can enjoy some data-analytics and discover some interesting stories.

You'll be the type of person that is interested in the bigger picture and not so focused on individuals. You'll have a good sense of humour, and not be easily offended by innuendos in talk abstracts. You'll also enjoy debates about security and people. Our encounter must be discrete, but who knows where it could lead. You must have good (password) hygiene, and appreciate risk in its broader context.

13:45 "Almost all you needed to know about GDPR but were too afraid to ask..."

Jonathan's talk will look at the forthcoming GDPR legislation which will have a huge effect on the way businesses and security professionals do what they do. Jonathan will give an overview of the legislation concentrating on its security provisions. He will also talk (using real examples) about how security professionals can increase their status within an organisation using GDPR. Additionally he will look at some recent cases, including the two regulatory actions against TalkTalk, and how they provide intelligence on how GDPR will be enforced.
