Metadata, or “data about data,” is collected and recorded to describe data, identify trends, administer algorithmic solutions, and model potential scenarios. When one understands how to make sense of seemingly random metadata or how to pair the data with other exfiltrated data pools, there are limitless possibilities for social engineering and cyber exploitation in attacks that weaponize psychographic and demographic Big Data algorithms.

In this publication, entitled “Metadata: The Most Potent Weapon in This Cyber War – The New Cyber-Kinetic-Meta War,” ICIT offers a rich analysis of this underreported threat to our National Security through a comprehensive assessment of how meta-exploits are hyper-evolving an already next-generation adversarial landscape. This includes discussions on:
How dragnet surveillance and retroactive legislation impede cybersecurity
How S.J. Res 34 allows ISPs to undermine national security and privacy
How Meta-Exploits expedite nation-state attacks on critical infrastructure

How Meta-Exploitation:
of Big data and metadata augments extremist recruiting
of Niche personnel enables cyber-kinetic attacks
Unmasks users with psychographic and demographic algorithms
Transforms remote contractors into insider threats
Undermines Democratic institutions
Impedes financial systems
Precisely tailors disinformation and fake news
Disrupts energy systems
Can cripple the healthcare sector
