OSINT training and competitions for clever investigators
Not buttonology.

Whether you use our tech and data or someone else’s, the best weapon in your arsenal is still your mind. Our trainings focus on the methodology of modern investigations — not where to click. Because once you know what to ask, you get better answers.

OSINT Essentials

This course instructor-led training teaches basics for successful use of ShadowDragon methodologies and investigative tools (SocialNet, OIMonitor, MalNet, AliasDB, Spotter). But beyond just how the tools work, we focus on why we built them and the questions they allow you to answer. You don’t need specific tools for a quality investigation (though they make it a LOT easier).

You need to understand the methodologies and
strategies necessary to:

icon process

Build a repeatable process around OSINT Collection & Analysis.

icon documents

Develop knowledge needed for simple and advanced dossier/target package building.

icon focus

Gain confidence in your manual and automated methods for social media and publicly-accessible information collection.

icon puzzle red

Constantly challenge your mind with practical exercises and puzzle solving.

You’ll walk away with a solid foundation in the art of OSINT
(plus a 30-day SocialNet license to practice with).
