Event description
One day workshop on the latest OSINT techniques!

About this Event

Class Description: Bring your laptops and come learn real OSINT techniques from the OSINT experts that run The OSINT Curious Project (https://osintcurio.us).

This 1 day course will start off with a brief section on "the basics" of how to protect yourself and your system while OSINTing and how to set up your own OSINT process. Next, we will dive into how leveraging advanced search engine operators can help you in your OSINT work. After that, we will spend a considerable amount of the session performing OSINT on a variety of social media platforms.

If you've been to our web site, watched our videos, or heard our podcasts, you know that we don't just point you towards a web form that performs some "OSINT Magic". You will learn how things work on the internet and then learn how to apply those to your investigations through expert lectures and hands on exercises.
