Who We Are

Echo Analytics Group, a Quiet Professionals company, was founded by Buddy Jericho, a former intelligence officer who created the training methodology to teach Special Operations Forces (SOF), the Department of Defense, and federal and local law enforcement to combat online activities by terrorists and other malicious actors.  

We are the experts in all things OSINT. We have experienced moments when our intelligence was the difference between life and death. And we have experienced what happens when those same intelligence tools were used against us.

Our Classes

Echo Analytics Group is proud to announce several open-enrollment classes to interested companies and students. We are hosting two separate one-week, in-person OSINT certification courses across two locations, multiple times throughout the year.

Do you need an expert researcher and analyst on your team to handle a steady stream of Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) questions?
