Course Description

OPEN SOURCE INTELLIGENCE FOR ADVANCED PRACTITIONERS SEMINAR (OSINT-AP): The OSINT-AP course provides students with the advanced knowledge and skills to navigate unclassified open sources for intelligence purposes. Students delve deep into current and emerging Internet content and learn techniques to address the rapidly growing complexity of openly available information. Students learn advanced principles of open source research using obscure and foreign search engines; use of social media link analysis techniques; techniques to access information within the Deep Web and identifying illegal markets and forums; techniques to monitor social media discussion boards/blogs; techniques for geo-inferencing social media posts; and assessing the need for information not available through open sources. Upon graduation, students will be able to conduct OSINT collection, research, and analysis at the advanced level.
