DNC Hacked Data in the Hands of a Trained Intelligence Professional presented at BsidesNova 2018

by Dave Marcus, Wally Prather,

Summary : When exposed or leaked data comes into the public eye what happens? News media skims through what they can, political opponents look for ammo, blame is placed, and lawsuits begin. What about the long game? A determined adversary would look at this data and ask: how can I develop assets and long term access into specific organizations at the right level?We look at the foundational doctrine approach to HUMINT (Human Intelligence) meaning who is a target and why. This can include key decision makers, scientists, local political personalities, law enforcement personal, religious leaders, and many more. We discuss how PAA (placement, access, and accessibility) are applied to groups, trends, programs, science, military, and government.What does a senior intelligence analyst do with the data? This presentation by the McAfees Advanced Programs Group answers that question. All data presented has been anonymized and sanitized to protect any individuals and organizations.This is what Foreign Intelligence Services are doing with the data, bet money on that!
