Open Source Intelligence, or OSINT for short, is a wide ranging skillset which leverages multiple disciplines, methods and sources for collecting and analysing data accessible via publically available sources. Its leveraged by the intelligence communities, military, corporate and financial researchers, and average every day people. Simply googling my LinkedIn profile to discover if I’m competent enough to discuss the matter would be an example of OSINT.
