NEW! ONLINE-WORKSHOPS

Due to the COVID-19 virus it’s unfortunately not possible for some international OSINT-enthusiasts to visit the Netherlands for our OSINT-course. That’s why we introduce various online workshops in February 2021! In these workshops mr. Arno Reuser teaches passionately and interactively about various interesting topics in an intimate setting. 

All workshops consist of 3,5 hours of interactive training. You will also receive access to our training website, quick reference sheets and handouts to read back all information. Make sure you register on time because there is only room for a limited number of participants.

What else is out there?

Discover open sources besides the WWW! Where many assume that the Internet is (almost) the same as the World Wide Web, the Internet has more to offer than just that. Criminals and terrorists may well hide and communicate in uncovered areas such as IRC, NNTP, FTP, etc. A good understanding of the global information landscape, especially with the Internet, is essential for serious open source researchers. An open source researcher does not think Google, an information professional thinks sources. The workshop will give a structured overview of the global Internet information landscape, and of all information available via the Internet that you will not find in the WWW. You will find out that Google in reality does cover only a fraction of what is out there. In addition, the Deep Web will be discussed and looked into. Tools and software will be provided as well.
This workshop is ideal for: Information businesses, journalists, librarians, archivists, information professionals, security officers, law enforcement, analysts, etc.
