Have you always wanted to know what type of decisions are required for a Social Engineering engagement but never get the opportunity to find out? Well look no further!
The Office of Danger: A Choose Your Own Adventure Story lets the audience make real world decisions on a social engineering engagement.
Will you be able to bypass security and reach your target? Or will your choices get your caught as soon as you enter?
The choice is in your hands!

The Office of Danger: A Choose Your Own adventure story! This session will put the audience in the driving seat of a real-life social engineering engagement against a high security office building in central London.
Simulating the high-pressure environment of a social engineering engagement, the slides will present the audience with a choice that must be made quickly to avoid detection, unlock new areas of the office and achieve their objective.
So, what will you do?
• Head for the stairs or the elevator?
• Sweet talk the receptionist, or try and blend in with the crowd?
• Run as quickly as you can from Security, or hide in the toilet?
You are presented with two options to take each adventure in a unique direction, with over 30 different choices to be made, resulting in a different and unique presentation each time!
This is the first of its kind talk, which puts you in the driving seat and shows the level of quick thinking that is needed to avoid detection and reach your targets!

Phil is a professional penetration tester working in the UK.. He has been a pen tester for the past four years and has completed numerous engagements across different sectors for all sizes of clients. He has written dozens of blogs covering different areas of testing, including: introductions to hardware hacking; threat modelling; owning a company through admin password reuse; and an investigating into an anti-5G USB key which caught the attention of the mainstream media. Phil was also co-speaker at DEF CONs Aviation Village discussing hacking legacy in-flight entertainment systems in retired 747s.

Phil has completed several social engineering jobs: breaking into buildings both big and small, well protected, and not so much. Forever wondering “what is behind that door” has somehow turned into a job, and a quizzical mind combined with quick thinking has allowed him to bypass some brilliant security measures and gain access into some very interesting areas.
