Why ‘Red Goat’?

A study, published by the Royal Society, showed that goats can recognise their fellow herd members by both sight and, more impressively, by the sound of their voice.

Up until the late 60s it was thought that only humans displayed cross-modal recognition. Cross-modal recognition is the ability to recall how others look, sound and smell. We now know several “intelligent” animals can do this and know we know goats can too.

The experiment:

The researchers recorded the voices of goats that lived together and random unrelated goats. They placed the “known” goat and the random goat in far left and far right corners of the enclosure. They then took a goat participant and played the recording of the known goat and then the random goat. They noted the test goat’s response and how long it took for the goat to make a decision. They discovered that almost as soon as the recording was played the goat would look at whichever goat that recording was attributed to. This not only showed that goats can recognise “intruders” into their herds or goats that aren’t their friends (cross-modal recognition) but also that they are capable of using “inferential reasoning”- in other words they can use a process of elimination to get to the correct answer. Perhaps when the goats listened to a recording that they knew wasn’t one of their friends they inferred that it must therefore be the other random goat.

At Red Goat Cyber Security we focus on training and testing your staff to quickly spot potential intruders into your company. We train them to spot malicious calls (Vishing), emails (Phishing), text messages (Smishing) and physical intruders (impersonation). The study came out not long before we founded the company and we realised that goats were able to spot intruders into their herds and we want your staff to be confident and capable enough to do the same!
