The Original Internet Godfather,
Former United States Most Wanted, Brett “GOllumfun” Johnson, referred to by the United States Secret Service as “The Original Internet Godfather” has been a central figure in the cybercrime world for almost 20 years. Mr Johnson built and was leader of ShadowCrew, the precursor to today’s darknet markets. He was instrumental in developing many areas of online fraud while helping design, implement, and refine modern Identity Theft, Account Take Over Fraud, Card Not Present Fraud, IRS Tax Fraud, and countless other social engineering attacks, breaches, and hacking operations.
Upon his capture, the United States Secret Service hired Mr Johnson to work as a consultant and informant. Johnson worked with the Secret Service for several months before going on a cross country crime spree, being placed on the US Most Wanted List, being captured again, sent to prison, escaping prison, being captured yet again, and finally accepting responsibility for his actions.
Today, Brett works as a security consultant and public speaker. He has worked with groups such as the FBI, Microsoft, eMailage, NextCaller,IDology, AARP, BBWest, TIB, The ACFE, The Card Not Present Group, The Identity Theft Resource Council, PRO, Universities, and many others.
Brett has been featured on numerous media outlets, most recently NBC, CNN Money, ArsTechnica, The Independent, RT TV, and more.

“The People Hacker”,
Jenny Radcliffe - aka “The People Hacker” - is a force to be reckoned with. She can diffuse a crisis situation, talk her way into a secure building and spot a psychopath at a hundred paces. She has been called a mind reader and a ‘human lie detector’, and likened to a Jedi Knight.
In reality, she is an expert in Social Engineering (the human element of security), negotiations, non-verbal communication and deception, using her skills to help clients from corporations and law enforcement, to poker players, politicians and the security industry.
Jenny speaks, consults and trains people in the skills of “people hacking” and explains how “Social Engineering” using psychological methods can be a huge threat to organisations of all sizes. She reveals how that same knowledge is a valuable tool for security professionals of all types in the prevention of these attacks, scams and cons of all kinds.
Using a mixture of scams, psychological tactics, advanced profiling and non verbal communication skills, Jenny highlights how criminals, special interest groups and others with mal-intent, can talk or trick their way into gaining access to personnel, buildings and confidential information.
Using a blend of anecdotes, science and humour, Jenny is an exceptional and highly impactful speaker. A regular keynote at major security events (Infosec, Rant, DISA, Nordic IT Security, ICS2, Trend Micro, Cisco, NTT, Bright talk, Cyber Security Week) and multiple TEDx contributor, Jenny has been a guest expert on security, scams and social engineering for various television and radio shows as well as online media.
Jenny is also the host of the podcast “The Human Factor” interviewing Industry Leaders, Bloggers, experts and fellow Social Engineers, about the human factor of security.
