Understanding Telecommunication Interception: Intelligence Support Systems

The Big Brother Services Industry and their tools

"Intelligence Support Systems" stand for a wide range of hard- and softwareproducts made to intercept and analyze data from telecommunication- and other datastreams as well as data from surveillance technology. The talk will give a brief overview of how this industry works, to whom these products are available and what the capabilities are.

A whole industry has been growing providing systems to intercept and analyse data from various sources - serving governments and other interested parties to improve surveillance on the subjects of interests formerly known as citizens.

This technology does not only change the way governments work, it´s implications for our rights on informational self-determination are fundamental. It does not only allow to analyse and graphically view human behaviour, but also the behavioural changes in the context of interactions and events.

In this talk i do not only want to give an overview on the tools of intelligence support, but also raise the question what kinds of escape and protection from this type of democracy-killing technology is possible.
