AntiPolygraph.org Talk at HOPE 2020 Conference: Polygraph "Tests" and How to Beat Them

I am pleased to announce that AntiPolygraph.org's talk proposal for the Hackers on Planet Earth (HOPE) 2020 conference has been accepted. Here is our submitted abstract:

Quote:
Polygraph "Tests" and How to Beat Them

Polygraph, or "lie detector" testing, has long been discredited from a scientific standpoint. Yet it has been embraced by the United States government for decades, and in 2020 it is the centerpiece of American counterintelligence policy.

Employees and contractors of such agencies as the CIA, NSA, FBI (and numerous others) are required to undergo pre-employment and recurring polygraph screening. Yet there is no documented instance of the polygraph ever catching a spy.

In this talk, AntiPolygraph.org co-founder George Maschke will address how this state of affairs came to be. The talk will address polygraphy's scientific shortcomings, why it poses a threat to innocent test takers, and will explain proven strategies for passing (or beating) a polygraph "test."

The talk will also address the U.S. government's recent efforts to suppress the teaching of methods for fooling the polygraph.

This topic will be of particular interest to the hacker community because many IT jobs with the U.S. government and its contractors require that the applicant submit to polygraph screening.


The conference, which was originally to be held at St. John's University in Queens, New York, will instead be held online from 25 July to 2 August 2020.

Great talk, George!  I just watched the whole talk, and I would like to comment on just one thing.  Yes, it is true that federal agencies share polygraph results.  However, if you fail the CIA polygraph, you can still get hired by the Department of State (DOS).  How do I know?  Because I DID IT!  I think the reason I was able to get into DOS, but not the FBI, is because DOS does not do polygraphs so DOS does not take much merit into polygraph reports unless the applicant made a stunning confession.  I made no confessions during my CIA polygraph.

Back in 2010 I failed two CIA polygraphs and found out in 2017 that I was blacklisted for lifeI passed an FBI polygraph in 2011 with ease thanks to Antipolygraph.org.  The DOS tried to get my polygraph details from the CIA, but the CIA denied DOS my polygraph reportI was hired by DOS in 2012 and spent six years in the foreign service with a TS/SCI clearance before resigning and leaving the U.S. to pursue a better life abroad.

My whole story is in my blog in my signature below.  I also wrote a blog post about How to Beat a Polygraph, summing up everything in one page.

Thank you, Byron! When I mentioned how a failed CIA polygraph can affect one's application with another federal agency, such as the State Department, I was thinking of the sad case of James Schneider. His polygraph occurred during the midst of the CIA's post-Ames polygraph jihad, so it's possible, as your personal experience suggests, that the impact of a failed CIA polygraph is less deleterious now than then.
