Connect the dots with OSINT

The Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) Summit will bring together leading security practitioners and investigators to share proven techniques and tools that can be applied to OSINT gathering and analysis. As an attendee, you will learn current, real-world methods from law enforcement officers, private investigators, pen testers, and cyber defenders who collect information across the Internet, analyze the results, and utilize key data to reach their objectives.

The OSINT Summit will explore the following topics:

  • Capturing, recording, and harvesting data
  • Creating a tailored OSINT process
  • Performing searches for people and researching businesses
  • Accessing social media data
  • Examining geolocated social media
  • Leveraging government-provided data
  • Collecting data from the Dark Web

A One-of-a-Kind Virtual Networking Experience

In addition to the two days of razor-focused Summit content, this Live Online event offers exclusive access to connect with your fellow OSINT community, leading experts and analysts, as well as SANS instructors and staff. Over these days of in-depth talks, panels, and world-class courses, the chat workspace is a place to engage with attendees and speakers, to ask your questions, and to also share your knowledge. Attendees tell us time and again that one of the greatest takeaways from a SANS Summit is the many industry connections they forge or deepen during their time with us.
