    This is completed in the New York - The Golden Handshake mission. You will need to reach Athena's office and eliminate all of her guards. Then turn her gramophone on and wait for her to react to it. After turning it off, she will walk to her award and you can use it to kill her. For the data core, you need to grab a briefcase from around the Bank and use it to conceal the data core when taking it from the vault. Before exiting through the main entrance, take the data core out of the briefcase and make your escape.

    Here is a video guide with English commentary!

    Segendary Ty Alright I just retried doing this. It was different but I still got it to work.

    Start as IT, no need to bring anything but the door hacking keycard thing will help shave a few seconds. Otherwise go through the security office and grab the keycard on the middle table.

    Then go upstairs and all the way to the left once you reach the lobby of her office.
    Climb / haul over the planter and hack / open the door to your left.
    Turn off the wifi and get in position behind the couch near the grammophone.

    When she sits down turn it off. If you see a question mark above her head, the distraction is confirmed. (Not the picture in picture window)
    Make your way back to the coins display
    Wait for her to turn off the gramophone.
    Now this is where it got weird. Normally she'd check the award right away. Instead she walked away so I grabbed the coin I was near and threw it. However a guard came to pick it up.

    I got distracted by social media but about a min later (around 3:00) she randomly went back to the award. I got the kill right there.

    Try this and good luck.

    Funky Monkee UPDATE: The original method worked for me first try on Professional difficulty! I didn't even think about it when I attempted it on Casual but NPCs are less responsive aren't they... my bad lol. Thanks for the reply anyway @Segendary Ty :)

    Boost17 Can confirm as I got this yesterday, starting as an investment banker and stealing the key from the security room. Went straight up into her room and triggered the gramophone while she was by the window.

    Can't believe that three highly trained bodyguards all missed me stabbing her with the award, or noticed when I left her body there behind the sofa!
