Practical Understanding of OSINT Practices and Tools
Open-source intelligence (OSINT) is the practice of collecting information from publicly available sources. Due to the internet, large amounts of data have become publicly available. OSINT is increasingly useful not just to sophisticated government agencies and law enforcement, but to financial crime analysts, fraud and brand misuse investigations, and particularly in cybersecurity. OSINT is also a helpful practice in the prevention of attacks on targeted individuals and companies.
This webinar will cover the OSINT process and methods as well as the tools and techniques that investigators use. It is presented by cyber expert and Chair of Capitol Tech’s award-winning cybersecurity program, Dr. Kellep Charles. The 60-minute webinar concludes with a live, moderated question-and-answer session.
Capitol Technology University presents this webinar as a complimentary, informational service. This webinar offers a Certificate of Attendance.
