OSINT; Open Source Intelligence Exploitation Course

TIME: 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

LOCATION:Carpenteria, CA; the exact location will be announced to cleared registrants prior to date of training.

AUDIENCE: InfraGard Members, Public Safety (Law/Health/Fire), Terrorism Liaison Officers (TLO’s), Infrastructure Liaison Officers (ILO’s), Private Sector Security, Area Stakeholders, all Critical Infrastructure Sectors, Intelligence Analysts, Intelligence Officers and Private Investigators.

DETAILS: This course identifies and demonstrates numerous free online resources that can aid internet researchers in solving both technical and non-technical investigations. Participants will be shown how to “dig” into the internet for personal information about any target. While popular social media sites are covered in detail (including techniques that legally access some “hidden” content), the presentation goes much deeper into the vast resources available online for researching information. Additionally, instructions for identifying local events in real time will be presented in great detail. This course focuses on the most popular social networks and proper retrieval of located information. These sources can also be used to conduct thorough background checks on potential employees. All resources can be applied to domestic and international investigations.

Registration closes November 7th. Registration requests made after this time will not be considered. All guests must register on Eventbrite and be approved by InfraGard Los Angeles. Unregistered guests may not attend. InfraGard Los Angeles reserves the right to cancel any registration at any time or refuse entry of any attendee.
