Infiltration: Successes and Pitfalls of Penetrating Hostile Online Groups

Posted on in Presentations

Investigating and infiltrating nefarious groups online for intel on anything from national security to fraud activity and threat intelligence is both necessary and risky. This session will invite attendees to share the best and worst of their efforts to permeate the bad guys’ territory—what works well, what backlash have they seen and how can we improve the ways we engage with adversaries?

Learning Objectives:
1: Share war stories, successes and difficulties of infiltrating groups online.
2: Discuss both the dangers and what works in dealing with bad guys on the Internet.
3: Review real-world tools that are enabling effective and secure interactions.
