Advanced Open Source (OSINT) Research & Analysis
This intense course on Advanced Open Source (OSINT) Research & Analysis Training in Dubai is designed to expand on the basic introduction to OSINT research & SOCMINT and provide advanced tradecraft development.
Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) is a field that involves gathering and analyzing information from publicly available sources, such as the internet, news articles, social media, and other open sources. Advanced OSINT research and analysis training builds on the foundational concepts of OSINT and provides participants with more in-depth training on how to use open source information for intelligence purposes.
Learn advanced techniques of contemporary Open Source and Social Media Intelligence Tradecraft from recognised leaders in the field including:
- Low Attribution
- Advanced Tools and Techniques
- Network Development and Analysis
The course will significantly enhance the trainee’s capabilities to maximize the resources, data and tools at their disposal to achieve organisational requirements.
Anyone required to: research, collect and analyse open sourced intelligence including social media. Participants would be expected to be computer literate and able to conduct basic workflows.
The course will be delivered in English.
