Active Information Gathering w/ Tyrone E. Wilson

Active Information Gathering w/ Tyrone E. Wilson

Join us as we look at the best techniques and tools we can use to collect information about our target.

Active information gathering or active reconnaissance moves beyond passive tools and techniques to directly interact with a target. This activity sends data to networks and devices and collects responses that we can then analyze. We can capture critical information using powerful scanners and other tools; however, any active recon risks detection.
