What's happening at DerbyCon 2018 - Part 1

In this Hyatt recorded edition of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Micah Hoffman, Josh Huff, and Justin Nordine join me at DerbyCon 2018.

Micah (@WebBreacher), Josh (@baywolf88), and Justin (@jnordine) join me to go over a variety of topics at DerbyCon 2018. The Hyatt was kind enough to provide space near the bar (shout to the amazing Lauren).

In this episode we discuss:

  • What OSINT classes and projects everyone is working on

  • Why contributing is important

  • What value conferences like DerbyCon provide

  • Why hotels hate accountant conferences

What's happening in OSINT?

In this open edition of the Exploring Information Security podcast, I sit down with Micah Hoffman, Kerby Plessas, and Josh Huff to discuss Open Source INTelligence (OSINT).

Micah Hoffman (@WebBreacher) is a SANS instructor who will be teaching a brand new SANS course, SANS487: Open-Source Intelligence Gathering and Analysis.

Kirby Plessas (@kirbstr) runs her own training company Plessas Experts Network, Inc. There is an online training portal that you can use to learn more about OSINT.

Josh Huff (@baywolf88) is a Digital Forensics Private Investigator and OSINT addict. He runs the Learn All The Things website.

This is a new format for the podcast that I am trying out. It's a lot like the conference episodes I do: It's longer; I allow swearing; and there is no format or direction. I asked for OSINT questions on Twitter and got some pretty good ones back for people to answer. I can turn this into a live show that would allow for people watching to interact with the guests on the show. I need feedback on whether or not this of interest to people. Hit me up on Twitter (@TimothyDeBlock) or email (timothy[.]deblock[@]gmail[.]com)

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why it's important to automate OSINT
  • What tools are available for OSINT
  • Where does OSINT end and breaking the law begin?
  • Where can OSINT be used in an organization
  • How to get into OSINT
  • and much much more
