VP Sales, UK & Europe, PhishMe


David has 19 years’ experience in software sales and sales leadership roles, of which nearly 10 years have been in the Security and Cyber Security industries. During this time, he has helped many organisations to secure their employees and their data. Most recently, at PhishMe, he has been showing customers how to protect their employees from human-targeted attacks.


Collective Security – Meerkats vs Humans

As the security industry has continued to under invest in the human element of security, phishing has become the top attack vector for cyber criminals. Breaches continue to occur in record numbers, identification takes an exorbitantly long time, and the most preferred target is an organisation’s human assets. Empowering human assets to provide vetted intelligence into your incident response teams is often overlooked. Every organisation has these human sensors, and there’s a natural desire for these employees to want to help.

In this presentation, David Janson will discuss:

  • Why the cyber security industry is broken
  • How to reduce susceptibility to human-targeted attacks
  • How to empower users to become human sensors to recognize and report suspected attacks
Artificial Intelligence? Isn’t it time we all harnessed REAL Intelligence to combat Cyber Attacks?

Phishing and spear phishing remain the No. 1 attack vector threatening organisations world-wide, continuing to challenge IT security teams as threat actors evolve their tactics to gain access to corporate networks, assets, and consumer data. Now, more than ever, organisations must be able to understand and identify the successful types of email attacks, themes, and elements used to successfully phish employees so that we can determine how best to prepare and condition them to identify and report suspicious emails to internal IT security teams. Perimeter defences, however robust, cannot and will not stop all phishing emails. Sooner or later, someone will click, so how can the time to detection of an initial infection be brought down, to lengthen the opportunity to prevent a larger attack.

In this session you will:

  • Learn the latest methods being used in phishing attacks
  • Discover which phishing themes and emotional motivators users find the most difficult to recognise and report
  • Learn how Behavioural Conditioning can be utilised to form a Human Phishing Defence
