Accidental Abyss: Data Leakage on the Internet presented at BSideSLA 2013

by Kelly Fitzgerald,

Summary : PII is personally identifiable information. In the information age, seemingly useless bits of PII can be found everywhere on the web from Facebook to Amazon to county records. Using purely legal methods and nothing more than artful searching I will show you the art of the low-tech, high-targeted recon. How much of your identity is scattered around on the internet? In this ambitious talk we will look at better hacking through television, how to combine crumbs to build thorough dossiers and learn some tricks on how to do some basic information reconnaissance. By the end of the talk you’ll have some frightening statistics, something good to think about and some tools that will make you a more effective social engineer, an aware user and a more thoughtful security expert.
