Advanced OSINT Course
Our Advanced Open Source Intelligence Course (AOC) is an open door, intensive four day comprehensive package aimed at investigators, analysts, corporate intelligence, media journalists and anyone interested in taking their OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) knowledge and skills to the next level.
Entirely focused on free tools and resources, this course teaches you how to plan, collect, process, analyse and produce high quality reporting based on proven methodology.
This course will be run virtually. Please see scheduled dates below or register your interest. Alternatively, download our brochure for additional information.
We have designed and developed the four-day course to take you from a limited knowledge base, to be a competent OSINT practitioner. To do this, our instructors will first teach theory and context, then demonstrate easy-to-follow techniques, and allow all participants to undertake practical activities to cement learnings.
The key skills learnt will be:
Social Media Searching and Cross Platform Social Network Analysis
Image Analysis and Geolocation
Corporate Profiling, including Website Investigations
Area of Interest Monitoring & Events
Introduction to Investigating the Deep Web, the Dark Web and Cryptocurrency
Our techniques expand on regular OSINT programs by ensuring all actions are nested within a strategic context. This means that the information that we collect can be turned into actionable intelligence.
We focus heavily on creating repeatable success by teaching the "what" & "how" to give a greater depth of knowledge. This will prepare you for future changes & challenges in the OSINT operating environment and reduce the reliance on third party tools.
We also run variations of this course routinely as closed-door sessions for organisations (see our tailored course offerings). Please reach out to our training team discuss further.
