We get a lot of questions about how to get data out of Twitter that can truly be used by law enforcement and government officials to enhance situational awareness and actionable intelligence. To answer those questions, we are hosting a webinar with our friends at GeoTime on Wednesday, September 18, at 12 p.m. EDT.
TeleStrategies’ ISS World is sponsoring a webinar on Innovative Gang Intelligence Collection: Tips and tricks for turning open source data into actionable intelligence on Wednesday, August 28, at 1 p.m. Eastern that we will be participating in.
The government and military love to use acronyms, and one of those acronyms is OSINT. Learn what it stands for, what it has to do with Big Data from the Deep Web, and why it isn’t just a government acronym.
WHAT IS OSINT?
In short, Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) is the practice of using the Web to create intelligence. The longer definition of OSINT is an information processing discipline that involves finding, selecting, and acquiring information from publicly available sources and analyzing it to produce actionable intelligence. In the U.S. Intelligence Community (agencies like the DoD), the term “open” refers to overt, publicly available sources, as opposed to covert or classified sources.
Many other “INTs” exist, including HUMINT, which exploits intelligence from humans via communication and interviews; and GEOINT, which is geo-spatial Intelligence gathered from satellites, aerial photography, and mapping/terrain data.
