ISC2 Zero Touch Hacking: Data Exposed Using Open Source Intelligence

Those slides were presented at ISC2 Security Congress / ASIS International on September 14, 2016.




Drug dealers, weapon brokers, criminals and your next-door neighbor are all leaving their data behind, begging you to look at it. We hear stories every day of how hackers steal data from corporations, governments and individuals. However, the real story is that they do not need to steal the data when we give it away for free. Using public data, tricks, buying used equipment and peering into people's darkest secrets is just the beginning. Aamir Lakhani, ethical hacker and cybersecurity researcher, will use real world scenarios to show how he was able to retrieve information, track down people who wanted to remain hidden and obtain intellectual data with zero touch hacking.
