Advanced OSINT Course
Our Advanced Open Source Intelligence Course is an all-encompassing, 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.
This course teaches you how to plan, collect, process, analyse and produce high quality reporting based on proven methodology.
This course will be run bi-annually virtually and/or in person. Please register your interest below, or 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:
Open-Source Intelligence Fundamentals
OSINT Attribution & Tradecraft
Information Searching Essentials, such as Advanced Google Dorking
Person of Interest Searching and Cross Platform Social Network Analysis
Corporate Profiling, including website investigations & supply chain analysis.
Area of Interest Monitoring & Events
Investigating the Deep Web and Dark Web
Analysis of adversary Tactics, Techniques and Procedures
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 this course routinely as a closed-door session for organisations (see our tailored course offerings). Please reach out to our training team discuss further.
