When OSINT practices are evolving every day, it's essential that you as an investigator...

  • Know how to stay hidden and anonymous from your target by easily using Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), Virtual Machines (VMs), "burner" phones, and cell emulators.

  • Can ensure a successful investigation with proper data gathering. You need to know how to use command line tools, ExifTool, and find tools on GitHub to reveal information missed by most investigators.

  • Are able to extract deeper insights from open sources by using sophisticated skills in URL manipulation and developer tool utilization.

  • Take the Open Source Certification (OSC) for your opportunity to become a certified Open-Source Investigations professional!
