Event description

Description

Organizations who do public interest work, are hit hard by the big changes in open source intelligence tools, especially LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. Open source intelligence (OSINT) lost some of their best tools, see the interviews I gave to NBC, Buzzfeed, ABC News and VICE. This workshop shows you what is still possible with some creative thinking and adapting tools that now fail on you.

Program

Facebook

1. What is still possible? What not? We'll look at the deleted tools and how to get some of the functionalities back
2. What other workarounds are there (special software has to be installed, you will get instructions)
3. How to strategically rephrase your research question into the rigid logic of "Facebook 2019"
4. CASES:
How to use FB 2019 to find weapon dealer
How to find supporters of a radical party in a small town
5. Mixed topics: cellphone, email and hidden friends lookup in FB - overview

LinkedIn
1.How to bypass LinkedIn restrictions without being illegal
2.How to find people who live in any given town (not allowed by default)

Twitter
1. What most eye witnesses say. It's not something with a hashtag
2. How to get an idea of who is behind a completely deleted Twitter profile
3. Sophisticated filtering: find only primary sources

Instagram
How to use social media to find a fugitive in a murder case

Telegram
How to access backlogs of groups


The course is very practical and hands on. We'll work with some amazing, real cases that seem impossible to solve at first. So what will you learn? Filtering of social media & how to verify social media. How to strategically rephrase your research question into the rigid logic of Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. And how to verify stuff.

This workshop/bootcamp helps you to survive "The Day After" and helps you to maximize your research results in filtering social media. The workshop in Amsterdam is open for news media, police, law enforcement, NGO's, human right watchers - so everyone who is working in the interest of the general public.

The workshop location is in a hotel near the airport Schiphol. You can fly in and get a free shuttle bus to the workshop location. If you want to stay overnight (1,2 or 3 nights), we offer a great rebate on the hotel, just click on Tickets for an overview.

Is there something as a free lunch?

Yes. Course includes three course buffet lunch in Restaurant Romeo during noon break
And there is a simple breakfast in the morning (croissants, coffee, tea, orange juice)

Are there any requirements to enter the event?

Yes, your work must be in the public interest.

What is the difference between this and your July 10th event?

The difference between is that we will look at filtering of social media, not just Facebook. It will also deal with verification of social media and the strategy behind phrasing a good question.

Do I really need something to bring with me?

Yes, you need a fully charged computer, your charger. Don't use a tablet

Can you arrange a hotel near the workshop area?

Yes, we've got you 10% off the normal hotel price. You can choose 1,2 or 3 days - no need to leave Amsterdam when you're done with the workshop :)
