DeepSec 2020 Training: Open Source Intelligence Gathering on Human Targets – Robert Sell

Sanna/ September 10, 2020/ Training/ 0 comments

Robert Sell conducts a two-day training at DeepSec. In his own words: „In this workshop I provide the class with real humans (missing persons) and while they are collaborating on this I provide tools and techniques for them to use to bring them closer to their goal. This is a hands on workshop where students will also have the opportunity to learn from each other. The beginning of the class will consist of a brief intro to OpSec considerations while the end will wrap up with report prep and intel safe guarding.“ We asked Robert a few more questions about his training. Please tell us the top 5 facts about your training. The Intelligence Community has been involved in open source intelligence (OSINT) for more than 50 years. The value of open source information

Press Release: Intensive Courses for crisis-proof Digitisation taking place in Vienna

Sanna/ August 28, 2020/ Conference, Press/ 0 comments

DeepSec security conference focuses thematically in depth on critical dangers for IT. As is well known, the digital world never sleeps. The last few months have shown that society and the economy are more dependent than ever on globally networked technology. The worldwide spread of SARS-CoV-2 has given telecommunications an enormous boost. The home office, already known before, teleconferencing systems and internet applications had to stand in for physical meetings and enable the exchange of information. As the use of these technologies increased sharply, security problems were of course discovered. Zoom is a prominent example. However, only the tip of the iceberg was analysed. Many vulnerabilities are still waiting to be discovered around the world. Anyone who demands more digitisation is actually talking about information security. Precisely for this reason, the DeepSec Security Conference

DeepSec 2019 Talk: Techniques and Tools for Becoming an Intelligence Operator – Robert Sell

Sanna/ September 23, 2019/ Conference, Security Intelligence

In this talk at DeepSec 2019, Robert will introduce the various operations that Trace Labs has performed to help illustrate Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) techniques used in finding details on real human subjects. Trace Labs is a non-profit organization that crowdsources open source intelligence to help law enforcement find missing persons. Trace Labs is non-theoretical and its members are conducting OSINT on real people. Robert lifts the curtain on successful OSINT techniques that can be used to pull up important information on individuals. Many of the slides show specific tools and techniques that can immediately be used to improve your OSINT results. The talk starts with a brief introduction to Trace Labs and its mission of helping law enforcement through a crowdsourced, open source intelligence. It then moves into a technical discussion on how to

Industrial Espionage and Data Tapping are commonplace in IT – DeepSec Conference provides Training for early Detection, Analysis and Mitigation

Sanna/ September 10, 2019/ Conference, Security

The excitement used to be great when organizations, parties, celebrities, companies, or government agencies reported intrusions into their own or outsourced digital infrastructure. Meanwhile, reports of data leaks and compromised systems are almost a part of the weather forecast. Security applications on smartphones or portals offer this information to allow the user to check if they might be affected too. The networked world of everyday life makes it seemingly possible to present attack and defence in the same breath. Affected, attackers, defenders and beneficiaries move closer together. But anyone who has this impression has fallen victim to the looming simplification. Modern information technology has to deal with dangerous situations every day that have far more facets. This requires a good deal of specialist knowledge and experience. First Responders, Analysis and Detection of Threats All
