Using the OSINT Mind-State for Better Online Investigations ­čçČ­čçž

Time: 10:00 > 11:00
Location: Zone 3 - Louis Armand - Osint Village

In recent years, public interest in open-source intelligence (OSINT) gathering and analysis has increased exponentially. As this interest has grown, more and more OSINT investigations have been relying on tools and automation, leaving the analysis process behind. In this talk, Nico will show why you should consider OSINT a thought process. He will discuss how to “reset” your state of mind to make sure your investigation and analysis is sound. The OSINT state of mind” is key for keeping track of your investigative steps, picking the right tools and sources, analysing the data, and reporting to generate actionable intelligence.
