Connect the dots with OSINT

The OSINT Summit will explore the following topics:

  • Capturing, recording, and harvesting open source information
  • Exploring the varied applications of OSINT in industry/the community
  • Accessing and collecting data from social media
  • Using tools and automated processes to accelerate OSINT collection or filtering of data
  • Ethical issues concerning OSINT collection and analysis
  • OSINT case studies of investigations you performed (sanitized, of course)
  • OSINT and its relationship with other forms of research, investigations and intelligence work


A One-of-a-Kind Virtual Networking Experience

In addition to the whole day of focused Summit content, this Live Online event offers exclusive access to connect with others in the OSINT community, leading experts and investigators, and some of the SANS instructors and authors you have taken courses from.

In addition to in-depth presentations and panels, you will also be invited to join the conference chat workspace which is a place to engage with attendees and speakers, to ask your questions, and to share your knowledge.
