Welcome guys my name is Anwer Khan and I will be your instructor throughout this course. In this course I will talk straight to the point. Therefore, we will cover more in less time.

Now, have you ever Googled someone before a job interview, or used social media to find out more information about someone you were going to meet? As it turns out true, you can use these skills in ethical hacking and penetration testing to help profile your target and hack into an organization.

Open-source intelligence or OSINT is the first step you’ll need to become a successful penetration tester.  OSINT is the act of gathering and analyzing publicly available data for intelligence purposes.

OSINT is primarily used in national security, law enforcement, and business intelligence functions and is of value to analysts who use non-sensitive intelligence in answering classified, unclassified, or proprietary intelligence requirements across the previous intelligence disciplines.

Government agencies use automated OSINT tools, alongside other cybersecurity tools, to detect and prevent cyberattacks. Analysts utilize these tools to monitor surface web and dark web paste sites, discussion forums, and digital marketplaces to uncover any discussion of breached data and planned cyberattacks.

Why is OSINT important?

OSINT analysts are experts at finding and preventing threats to organizations. The range of online information that could harm your business is endless. Empowering a team to use OSINT tools and techniques will go a long way to ensuring your organization is a step ahead of online threats.

In this course, you’ll get a high level overview of OSINT and when to use it. We’ll cover topics like the difference between active and passive reconnaissance, ways of tracking organizations and employees that work there.

Some tools and methods to gather OSINT information from sources you’d expect like social media and the dark web, but also sources you might not expect like job posts and DNS records and a lot of that is collecting, analyzing, and turning OSINT data into actionable intelligence.

When you’re finished with this course, you’ll be able to immediately put OSINT to use.

I invite you to join me on this OSINT journey.

Let’s get started.

Thank you.
