Open Source Intelligence (OSINT)

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. The notable players operating in the global OSINT market include Dassault Systemes SA (France), NICE Ltd.(Israel), Expert System (Italy), Intrinsic Technologies (US), Digimind (US), Verint (US), Datalkz (UAE), Thales SA (France), Palantir Technologies (US), CybelAngel (France), SAIL LABS Technology GmbH (Austria), KB Crawl SAS (France), and Recorded Future (US).
Imagine a harried SOC analyst staring at a strange IP address and uncertain what to do about it. He or she could use OSINT resources OSINT like these to research the IP address and file binary, as well as registration entries and any other appropriate data points.

Moreover, in Europe, the market will be noting immense growth trajectory in the forthcoming years, as a result of the heightened level of competition encouraging the adoption of open source intelligence tools used for the collection of quality data to be utilized efficiently in the region.
I've had my private direct message conversations screenshot and posted to social media by the CEO of Gab and others Whenever you're working, be keenly aware that in this era of microblogging and self-documentation, anyone you speak to may decide to publicize your conversation without asking permission to do it. If someone is hostile to you or your publication, this note is doubly important.
The software gave a definite speed advantage, but the mind of a good OSINT investigator can come up with some brilliant comparisons and open source solutions that can be just as effective and run several levels deeper when it comes to full analysis of a target profile.

He global leaders of the Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) market are Dassault Systemes SA (France), Expert System (Italy), NICE Ltd.(Israel), Intrinsic Technologies (US), Verint (US), Digimind (US), Datalkz (UAE), Palantir Technologies (US), Thales SA (France), CybelAngel (France), KB Crawl SAS (France), SAIL LABS Technology GmbH (Austria), and Recorded Future (US).
The first category includes open source tools to query multiple search engines simultaneously such as IntelTechniques or search engines that provide results separately such as All in One or DuckDuckGo This category also includes social media search engines and search engines of domains and people such as , , Website.informer.

Data is sourced from primary and secondary research which include interviews with stakeholders across the value chain (CEOs, Business Development Managers, MDs, VPs, etc.), whitepaper references, SEC filings, paid database services, whitepaper references, annual reports, etc.
Whatever your goals, open source intelligence can be tremendously valuable for all security disciplines Ultimately, though, finding the right combination of tools and techniques for your specific needs will take time, as well as a degree of trial and error.

As we have seen already, the desire to gain information or intelligence regardless of the purpose for doing so has long been a part of human existence and as such, techniques and threats have emerged to see that this information and intelligence gathering capability continues and flourishes.
Maltego - Maltego is an open source intelligence (OSINT) and graphical link analysis tool for gathering and connecting information for investigative tasks. Some may work, others may not, but that's part of the OSINT strategy - you will have to identify which sources are good and which ones are irrelevant for your research.
