Briefing Stage 3


In the world of Cybersecurity, OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) emerges as a "double-edged sword". While adversaries exploit publicly available information to architect their attacks, organizations can harness the same power for their defense.

This 40-minute session delves deep into the duality of OSINT. Through real-world case studies, we will unravel how threat actors use OSINT for cyber-espionage, spear-phishing, social engineering, Business email compromise and more. These insights will pave the way for a comprehensive understanding on how organizations can use similar technics to turn the tables. By viewing themselves through the adversary's lens, they can identify vulnerabilities, map their digital footprint and even assess third party risks.
