    Exploring the possibilities with Open Source INTelligence

    Information is power and having access to the most accurate, up-to-date, and relevant intelligence is vital to a successful online investigation.

    In today’s technologically advanced world fraudsters have been utilising the internet to assist them in a multitude of online frauds including fake accounts, websites, or dark market sites to sell the proceeds of their crime.  To hide their identity fraudsters will use the internet and the opportunities it provides to reduce the chances of them getting caught.

    Whilst the internet provides fraudsters this opportunity to muddy the waters around them, it also offers an investigator the prospect of tracking the digital footprints left behind utilizing OSINT skills.  Open-Source INTelligence (OSINT) is becoming a vital source to the fraud investigator as it offers access to un-classified information including social networks, forums, business websites, blogs, videos, photos and news sources.

    Many organisations are now looking to OSINT for the prediction, prevention, investigation, and prosecution of fraudsters whilst looking to maximise their search without leaving digital footprints.  Dr Stephen Hill will be presenting the latest tools and techniques using open source intelligence and will demonstrate how to use it to trace suspects and witnesses as well as gathering intelligence on organisations and entities.
