March 15, 2016, meetup agenda
This month one of ColaSec's own, Josh Huff, will put on a presentation regarding Open Source Intelligence (OSINT).
Abstract: Open Source Intelligence – OSINT: The tools and some uses
Open Source Intelligence is defined by the Army as an intelligence discipline that pertains to intelligence produced from publicly available information that is collected, exploited, and disseminated in a timely manner to an appropriate audience for the purpose of addressing a specific intelligence and information requirement. That’s a pretty intense way to say that once we find the Open Source Information we use it for a specific purpose. My talk will show you some of the purposes for finding Open Source intelligence and the tools we use to gather it. OSINT is everywhere… for example what information can we pull from a social media post showing a great deal at the gas pump? How bad are those pictures of debit cards where people obscure some of the digits on their card? What can we learn from the Internet of things and what can we do to protect ourselves from leaking this information all over the place? The bonus round includes locating places that our heroes from The Walking Dead snuck around when filming in Atlanta.
Join us for networking from 6:00 - 6:30 at IT-ology. Then the OSINT presentation by Josh Huff beginning at 6:30. Food and beverages will be available. We look forward to seeing you there!
