Our two-day Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) training course will teach you to obtain intelligence from publicly available information. There is a wealth of information available from open sources, but locating and extracting it can prove difficult and time-consuming due to the sheer volume of data available. By employing focused collection and analysis techniques, effectively obtained information can support any number of business objectives.

At the end of the course, you will have the necessary skills required to conduct independent online open source investigations while understanding and mitigating your own online digital footprint.
