Press Release: September 18, 2009
Join us for this free, live webcast--Psychotronica: Abusing and Leveraging Intelligence from Social Networking
In this presentation, we will go beyond discussing the obvious security and privacy implications of social media.
Topics of discussion will include:
Hacking the Psyche: Remote behavior analysis that can be used to construct personality profiles to predict current and future psychological states of targeted individuals, including discussions on how emotional and subconscious states can be discovered even before the target is consciously aware.
Techniques on how individuals may be remotely influenced by messaging tactics, and how criminal groups and governments may use this capability, including a case study of Twitter and the recent terror attacks in Bombay.
Reconnaissance and pillage of private information, including subliminal data that can be measured by way of influence, link, and sentiment analysis that the victim may not be aware of revealing.
We will tie the items of discussion to privacy implications as well as how they can be leveraged for investigations as well as business decisioning.
Attendance is limited, so register now. We'll send you a reminder before the webcast. And please feel free to share this invitation with others.
