What: Infiltration – Successes and Pitfalls of Penetrating Hostile Online Groups
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 invites attendees to share their best and worst efforts to permeate the bad guys’ territory – what works well, what backlash have they seen, and how to improve the ways we engage with adversaries.
