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.
This training is an accredited SPEN-register training. If you take and successfully complete a final test, you will receive a diploma from the Stichting Permanente Educatie Nederland (SPEN) and you may use the title "Registered OSINT Technical Specialist ®" (in short: ROTS). This also means that you will be registered in the graduate register of the Centrum voor Post Initieel Onderwijs Nederland (CPION) and will receive Personal Education (PE) points.
For whom is this training intended?
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.
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.
This course is part of the OSINT training trajectory that also includes the Basic and Advanced courses. The training is supported through DataExpert’s e-learning platform, where participants can learn the theory through both text and short videos. The course is taught in English, and can be offered in both online and frontal-teaching formats.
