Subliminal Hacking at BruCon 2011 … Belgium Security Conference


BruCON is an annual security and hacker(*) conference providing two days of an interesting atmosphere for open discussions of critical infosec issues, privacy, information technology and its cultural/technical implications on society. Organized in Brussels, BruCON offers a high quality line up of speakers, security challenges and interesting workshops. BruCON is a conference by and for the security and hacker(*) community.

The conference tries to create bridges between the various actors active in computer security world, included but not limited to hackers(*), security professionals, security communities, non-profit organizations, CERTs, students, law enforcement agencies, etc…..

I have the pleasure of once again speaking at the awesome BruCon Security Conference held in Belgium. The conference is going to be at a new location this year, so I look forward to seeing how the conference works, as the previous location really was ideal, and of course I look forward to seeing faces old and new.

So this years talk is called “Social Engineering Like In The Movies – The Reality of Awareness and Manipulation”. On the TV and on the Big Screen we see all sorts of strange and amazing things, and when it comes to reading peoples minds, telling if they are telling a lie, or influencing someone to carry out our desires even the far out can seem possible. With the growing exposure of body language, micro expressions, and linguistic techniques sometimes we forget about actual reality. In this talk I will talk about what you can really gain when you understand body language tells, can the eyes really reveal hidden messages.
