In this talk, we will revisit some of the scariest stories we faced during over 50 penetration testing and security research projects, with a twist.

We will go through a journey of critical findings in different targets and the constant battle between penetration testers, developers, and mid to upper management.

TThe current state of deep fake detection, social engineering attacks, and security incident response benefits will be highlighted at the DeepSec security conference this year. Of course, there are many more presentations that are indispensable for digital defence. Language models do not think, they forge Attacks through phishing emails and social engineering bypass technical measures through communication. By imitating victims’ language, attackers try to get them to support the attack with their own actions. Artificial persuasion is the speciality of AI language models, as they are designed to simulate conversation. Alexander Hurbean discusses which tools are available for these attacks and how
