Foundation OSINT training for online investigators
23rd to 25th September 2019 Central London
This hands-on, 3-day training course uncovers the power of OSINT and reveals how online investigation goes beyond a simple Google search.
All good online investigators know the limitations of open source intelligence (OSINT). The sheer volume of information out there, the wealth of false stories and misinformation, the impact of bias, and the use of privacy settings to name a few.
Futurum’s 3-day course tackles those limitations head on by focusing on three core areas. Safety, efficiency and validity. It will therefore provide the framework for conducting effective online investigations, which can be applied immediately in your place of work.
Operating safely online is never convenient. This course will teach you the safe operating practices critical to running online investigations in order to protect your identities.
Maximising the value of your search results and the ability to follow digital trails efficiently are key learning outcomes of the course. Let’s face it, no one wants to read through 3 million Google search results. This course teaches the very latest online investigative tools and techniques which will enable focussed, relevant and actionable results. We only use tools and software which are free and publicly available. You will also learn some key OSINT workflow skills and methods for planning and conducting OSINT investigations and recording the results.
Recognising what is fake and what is real is critical in this era of online content which is increasingly malicious or AI-driven. This course will provide a toolkit for examining content to verify its authenticity.
