OSINT Onl1ne G4ming
The online gaming community is growing faster than ever. There are more than 715 million gamers in Europe alone (source: Ipsos - 2022). As a result, more and more platforms have emerged or evolved in recent years to support these online communities. However, these platforms are also increasingly used by (cyber) criminals to support criminal activities, such as exploitation, money laundering, fraud or hacking. Unnoticed, millions of euros are circulating in this relatively invisible world.
For many researchers this is a new (virtual) world in which investigative opportunities arise, provided they know how to use them. During the training, topics such as terminology, online communities such as Reddit, underground (gaming) markets and platforms such as Twitch are covered.
So, whether you're an online gaming n00b or a pro with serious skills, this training led by one of our dungeon masters will have you safely farm your XP to take OSINT skills to the next level.
Who is this training intended for?
This two-day training is suitable for anyone who uses the internet in (criminal) investigations, including the police, defense and other investigative and security services, thematic investigators, analysts at banks (CDD, KYC, AML), insurers, private investigators and more.
We advise participants to successfully complete the OSINT Basic and OSINT Advanced training before attending this training.
