Open Source Intelligence (OSINT)

Using advanced internet research techniques has become a key tool for journalists and our courses give reporters and researchers tools previously only employed by university level IT academics and police investigators, for verification, fact-checking and deep investigative research.

Our training in advanced online investigation teaches participants an understanding of the way information is structured on the internet and the methods and tools used by law enforcement and security services to uncover evidence that would never otherwise be available.

These skills can speed up your research on a subject, group, company or person significantly, identifying leads, sources, links and evidence and freeing up your time to craft a compelling story.

The course equips delegates with the skills to go beyond Google and access information and open source intelligence that is freely available online but is often hidden.
