Theme: Hacking HUMINT
HUMINT can provide several kinds of information. It can provide observations during travel or other events from travelers, refugees, escaped friendly POWs, etc. It can provide data on things about which the subject has specific knowledge, which can be another human subject, or, in the case of defectors and spies, sensitive information to which they had access. Finally, it can provide information on interpersonal relationships and networks of interest.
HUMINT is both a source of positive intelligence, but also of information of strong counterintelligence value. Interviews should balance any known information requirements of both intelligence collection guidance and of counterintelligence requirements.

Sponsor: Bsides Liverpool
Without loyal and supportive sponsors, we wouldn't be able to keep Bsides Liverpool focused on sharing knowledge, free from sales pitches and vendor talks.
Companies support Bsides because they would like to support the community and give back.
