What is OSINT?
When open source information (also called publicly available information) is validated as relevant, accurate, and actionable for use by consumers, it is then considered OSINT. This process begins by methodically gathering information from public sources and the deep and dark web. Open source information can be gathered from the internet, social media, in books, images, videos and anywhere else information is available to the public. Additional sources of OSINT can be information obtained during a public webinar, at a public speech, or during a conference.
Why do I need OSINT?
Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) is used for a number of reasons by businesses today due to the explosive growth of the internet and social media. Organizations are typically using OSINT teams to assist with their hiring process, to protect their executive teams, assess the vulnerability of information available on the internet to hackers and competitors, to protect their assets, to monitor and respond to security threats, manage third party risk, and to be alerted in the event sensitive information is leaked.
