Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) is an important link for converting publicly accessible data into (reliable) information and, from there, into (actionable) intelligence. Whereas early days mainly saw the use of physical open resources, OSINT has taken great leaps, thanks to digitisation.
Data gathered through OSINT is used globally by investigation services and (cyber) security organisation to directly benefit tactical or digital tracking and tracing, as well as, for example, threat intelligence.
In addition, OSINT data is frequently used to enrich owned data resulting from other resources or investigations, for example for digital forensic or fraud investigations.
Many people associate OSINT with data gathering. However, to prepare data for use as information and/or intelligence, it must also be analysed/interpreted and reported.
To offer optimal OSINT support, DataExpert provides a unique blend of products, services, and training courses.
