Summary: Every day, every one of us leaves a trail of information that is publicly available. Every day, every one of us is immersed in a sea of information of questionable relevance and accuracy. And every day, every one of us is betrayed by the way our minds process this information.
OSINT, or open source intelligence, means different things in different contexts. This talk will focus on two of those areas related to open source intelligence.
The first area describes how an intelligence analyst extracts intelligence from information by identifying common mental traps and compensating for both internal and external biases. I will show you how to use the mental tradecraft from traditional intelligence to make sense of the world around you.
The second area explores how to follow digital breadcrumbs. This reconnaissance methodology is part of every targeted Cyber attack. This will help you gain an understanding of the risks your public information poses to you and your organization.
Make sure your RSVP by March 5th at 8:00am and don’t forget to mark you lunch order.
