Jane’s Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) Masterclass. Register Now.
Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) is changing rapidly, with the exponential growth in the quantity and variety of publicly available information requiring OSINT analysts and teams to develop new skills, abilities, and knowledge, particularly in collating and analyzing the mass of information.
In a world of increasing misinformation and the weaponisation of open source information, OSINT analysts need to ensure they keep up with the changing environment without leaving themselves vulnerable to surprise and deception.
The Jane’s OSINT Masterclass provides participants with an understanding of the uses, limitations, opportunities and risks associated with the exploitation of open source information by teaching a structured approach that draws on Jane’s OSINT expertise. The Masterclass provides OSINT professionals with a comprehensive set of practical skills covering collection, monitoring, collation, and analysis of open source information, as well as production of effective OSINT reports and briefings.
