Summary : Imagine, if you will, a time that seemed innocent... almost too innocent. Imagine a nation under whose seemingly conformist and conservative surface dramatic social changes were brewing, changes as obvious as ERP integration and as subtle as Shortland Street acting. And imagine, if you will, attending a seemingly harmless security conference in Wellington. But what if this security conference was not as it appeared? What if it masqueraded as a simple conference, and did not reveal its true social engineering agenda until people took a closer look? Let us examine if some of the attendees could be socially engineered even knowing that someone might be trying to. Let us investigate the secrets of... The Social Engineering Zone.
