The Phantom Vendor Scenario
Picture this: An invoice shows up in your inbox from a vendor you know, but something's off. The logo doesn't look quite right, and there's a message from a colleague saying it's urgent. What's your next move? Will you pay or pause? How do you validate the invoice's authenticity? What would you do if the relevant colleague is out of reach?
- Know Yourself: How well do you understand your own reactions?
- Trust and Vigilance: How do we balance these in a digital world?
Friday 20 October, 60 minutes
Prepare for a transformative 60 minutes that could reshape your cybersecurity defenses.
The Deepfake Doppelgänger Scenario
Imagine you receive a voicemail. It's unmistakably your CEO's voice urgently instructing you to share sensitive project updates with what appears to be a trusted partner. Yet, something feels off. Will you share the information or step back to validate? Who is the first person you would consult within your organization? What would you ask them? How do you feel about challenging or doubting your CEO's direct request?
- Authenticating the Authentic: How can you be sure you're really interacting with who you think you are?
- Sift Through the Noise: Understanding how to mentally filter urgency and stress to make a grounded decision.
Friday 27 October, 60 minutes
Prepare for a gripping hour that will put your entire organization's resilience to the test.
The Nightmare Chatbot Scenario
A chatbot integral to your customer service starts sending panic-inducing emails to your client base, warning them of non-existent data breaches and urging immediate action. Your customer-facing teams are flooded with concerned calls and emails. IT is swamped, trying to regain control. Your CEO is furious, as this threatens your company's reputation, and the board wants answers. What do you do first?
- Crisis Communication: How effective is your internal dialogue in the face of reputation-damaging events?
- Multi-Departmental Cohesion: Can Marketing, IT, and Customer Service work in sync under severe stress?

Hey, I'm Nadja!
From early on in my career, I recognized the immense potential of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) as a tool for resilience and empowerment. My journey took me through a fascinating landscape where technology meets human behavior, working with NATO to help safeguard digital frontiers. And just like a firewall protects a network, I realized emotional firewalls could protect the very people operating these networks..
My passion for EQ is not just academic; it's deeply personal and practical. I've spent years not only studying EQ but also applying it to real-world challenges, especially in the digital landscape we navigate every day. As a thought leader in this domain, I'm excited to share this wisdom with you. Together, we can build your emotional firewalls, making both your professional and personal life more resilient to the social engineering challenges of our digital age.
Whether you're a security expert, HR professional, or simply someone interested in human resilience in the digital world, I look forward to embarking on this transformative journey with you.
