Introduction to OSINT Video

Micah was very lucky to meet and get to work with the talented Ritu Gill, (@OSINTTechniques). At the recent Trace Labs (@TraceLabs) and SANS (@SANSDefense) Missing Persons CTF in Washington DC, we both noticed that many people wanted to participate but had no idea how to get started. After a few discussions, we decided to make an Introduction to OSINT video.

The brief video, posted below, highlights the following areas of OSINT:

  • How to start your research
  • User name searching
  • Using frameworks and flowcharts
  • People searching using emails and phone numbers
  • Using Google advanced search operators
  • Reverse image search
  • Saving your data

Each of the above areas is briefly discussed so as to get you on your way to OSINTing quickly.
