InfoSec World – Open Source Intelligence Gathering (OSINT)

Open Source Intelligence Gathering (OSINT) is growing in popularity among attackers and defenders alike. When an attacker comes knocking on your network’s front door, the warning lights go off in multiple systems (IDS, IPS, SIEM, WAF). More sophisticated attackers, however, spend considerable time gathering information using tools and techniques that never (or rarely) touch any of your systems. As a result, these attackers are able to execute their attacks and make off with proprietary data before you even realize they are there.

This pre-conference workshop will be presented by Jerrod Brennen, GBQ’s Security Architect, and provides participants with both an introduction to numerous OSINT tools and techniques, as well as methods you can use to minimize your exposure. By the end of the workshop, participants will have a working knowledge of how to collect OSINT on their organizations, as well as on individuals associated with their organizations. More importantly, participants will understand how attackers might exploit that information in an effort to compromise a company’s internal network.

The pre-conference workshop takes place on Saturday, March 17, 2018 for InfoSec World’s 2018 Conference and Expo being held at Disney’s Contemporary Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
