Denial & Deception

Claiming the Denied Information and Detecting the Deception in Asymmetric Warfare​

Denial & Deception as one of the oldest forms of asymmetric warfare occurs when state or non-state actors (e.g. terrorist groups, criminal organizations or separatist movements) use these distinct but intertwined combination of information operations to achieve their objectives against own targets, interests, or policies. Its goal is to influence the judgements made by intelligence producers and thus the consumers of their products.

Whilst denial refers to programs designed to eliminate, impair or neutralize the effectiveness of intelligence collection throughout all disciplines of intelligence, deception refers to manipulation of intelligence collection, analysis or public opinion by introducing false, misleading or even true but misleading information.

As the aim of the intelligence is to acquire accurate information, this day is dedicated to discuss how to detect the “denied” information on one hand and to recognize the deception and reveal the real intentions on the other.

The New Wave of Jihadism in CYBERsPaCE

Jihadism is still an ever-changing threat in today’s security landscape. Making a sober assessment of these threats is therefore imperative for better understanding how these networks avoid detection from law enforcement and intelligence agencies.

This session will hence provide an overview on possible future trends of Jihadism and strategies, their current cyber activities and their emerging narratives, ideology and adapting modus operandi online and offline.


This session will focus on discussing the current needs of OSINT users and the possibilities of further advances in the field, powered by SAIL LABS solution.
