OSINT Technical

By using Open Source Intelligence, also known as Internet investigation, it is possible to find relevant data from digital open sources during fraud, cyber crime and/or criminal investigations.

During the “OSINT Technical” follow-up training, the participants learn the ‘technical’ skills needed to conduct an in-depth investigation on the Internet using Linux, scraping and other tools. After completing this training, the participants can conduct a partially automated investigation on the Internet and the dark web using tools, virtual machines and Python.

Who is this training for?
This three-day training course is suitable for anyone who uses the Internet for (investigative) research, including police and other investigative and security services, thematic analysts, analysts at banks (CDD, KYC, AML), private investigators and more.

We advise participants to successfully complete the OSINT Basic and OSINT Advanced training courses before participating in this training.

What do you learn during the training?
At the end of this training, the participant has insight into the possibilities of deeper (technical) investigation on the Internet and dark web. The participant has an understanding of ports and protocols and knows how to make effective use of the Linux command line. The participant can also use Python scripts and scrapers to perform automated investigations using, among other things, APIs.

All training courses can be given in Dutch or English; in both classroom and online form. Furthermore, the training courses have a modular structure, which also makes it possible to put together a tailor-made training course with matching case studies.
