OSINT Toolkit accelerates open-source intelligence investigations by 30x over traditional methods and drives swift business decisions that reduce risk and mitigate threats.
As healthcare and finance grapple with the mounting threats, growing costs, and accountabilities, security professionals are facing huge hurdles. Caught between a rock and hard place, many organizations are looking for new ways beyond defense and including proactive intelligence activities involving open sources of information.
OSINT collection can be used to obtain information about Domains to help cybersecurity and information security teams make informed decisions, identify threats, or understand their other POIs better
Due to the high volume of false positives, many security teams can suffer alert fatigue which can lead to less than ideal behavior. Analysts can begin to miss, ignore, or turn off alerts. Although this behavior is clearly understandable, it can lead to teams missing important indicators of genuine threats.
Beyond private conversations, which are not legally accessible without warrants if at all, there are hidden data sources that live on what is called the Dark Web. The Dark Web is an unconnected collection of private spaces online where communication, sharing, and transactions can often occur in plain sight. It has been corrupted though, and security professionals and law enforcement are taking great interest in this type of activity.
The investigative process requires the right lens, and you need to know where to start looking. OSINT techniques uncover information about malicious threat actors, possible threats, or crimes that have occurred in the conversations and breadcrumbs that people leave behind on the Internet in the commission of, or in relation to, the acts.
What was once the domain of highly specialized teams even half a decade ago, the collection and utilization of OSINT data as a function of security is now becoming a critical component of overall threat intelligence for both corporate and cybersecurity teams. With this rise in priority has come the expansion of teams and an influx of new OSINT practitioners.
All organizations conduct some form of due diligence. It enables decision-makers to identify relationships that will serve in the best interests of their shareholders, customers, employees, and brand. Incorporating OSINT into your due diligence process will be key to getting the information you need.
