CANCELED: Intel and Counter-Intel for Activists
Just a shout-out for my class on Friday. The idea here is to move beyond basic security culture -- usually just practiced as a defensive measure -- to more offensive ways of discovering what our adversaries are up to and covering our own activities from the prying eyes of governments, corporations, and fascists.

Beyond basic defensive security culture, how do we get the information we need to effectively change the world and fight tyranny? We'll talk about a collection of techniques used to manipulate people into performing actions or divulging confidential information that can be used against authoritarians and tyrants. Social engineering, confidence games, Internet research and tools, back stories, plausible deniability, and sneaking around. Learn how to use open web sources, perform target development, and to organize your group for success. Will discuss both practical methods and general intelligence/counter-intelligence theory.
