Fairly Easy, once you've gotten the Security Access for the Basilisk go back to the slums.

The guide here is the best way to get there -

Open the front door, DO NOT break it. Get 100% (you don't need to ghost it)

But when you go back to the escape pod close the front door, after all Manners cost nothing!!

This one is known to be glitchy. It took me 5 or 6 attempts of fulfilling the requirements as I understood them before it finally unlocked.

Basically once you've gotten to the Swindle by purchasing your final security clearance, instead of beginning the final mission you want to revisit the Slums (first area where you started the game).

Once you're there you'll want to open the front door politely rather than destroying it, barging in with your ability, or breaking in through a window. Once inside, you'll need to loot 100% of the level. This means that if you miss any money by accidentally destroying a computer, you'll need to restart. It doesn't matter if you're spotted on the way out, as long as you've gotten all the $ from the level. If you're not sure how much is left, there is an upgrade ability that tells you the money left on a map. When you have collected all 100% exit the map to your escape pod and close the front door on your way out. Occassionally your escape pod will enter from the right side of the map. This is the rear door so you'll want to jump over the roof and enter in the front door on the left.

Additionally, I also discovered you do not want to break any exterior aspects of the map. (i.e. bombing an outer wall or breaking a glass window) You can easily miss this by punching a guard and he then goes flying through a window, so be aware of your surroundings.

Again, this achievement is glitchy, and is known to have issues by the developer to register a closed front door, so multiple attempts will probably be needed.
