WHAT MAKES INFOSEC WORLD DIFFERENT THAN THE REST?
For more than 20 years security professionals have made InfoSec World the “business of security” conference. To manage today’s threats, security practitioners must have the skills to be both a business partner and enabler, and have the technical expertise to prevent, detect and respond to security challenges. InfoSec World features a world-class program and expert speakers from the field to help you do just that. Here’s what you’ll gain from attending InfoSec World:

Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) Gathering Hands-On
ONE DAY WORKSHOP | Saturday, March 17, 2018 | 8 CPEs
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 workshop provides participants with both an introduction to numerous OSINT tools and techniques, as well as methods you can use to minimize your exposure.
