About this Episode

Actor engagement, and physical security intersect when active shooter situations or heightened security threats are targeted against executives or physical locations. Naturally, the topic of hack-back arises but this takes us down the rabbit trails of the roles synthetic identities play in the cognitive landscape, actor engagement and experiences found only in the trenches. Blake Butler from Paypal joins us in exploring very specific topics that are not discussed enough.

Topics include:

  • Using OSINT, and Targeting in Active Shooter or physical security situations.
  • Hack back or Long Term Investigations
  • Actor engagement is a must for gleaning better intelligence. This isn't hack back, but to non-technical folks it sounds like hackback. Clarification is needed.
  • Cognitive Warfare landscape coupled with Synthetic Identities.
