FREE - E-LEARNING COURSE ON OPEN-SOURCE INTELLINGENCE (OSINT)

  • A brand new eLearning course on our free Basel LEARN platform introduces the rich possibilities of open-source intelligence for investigations.
  • The course starts with the seizure of the fishing boat FV Malaga, suspected of involvement in illegal fishing and marine species trafficking. It’s your job to seek information and evidence to build the case – using only open sources available on websites and open databases, social media and online forums. On the way, you’ll also take a trip into the so-called dark web and the Bitcoin blockchain.
  • How can open sources help you you find out who is behind the secretive organisation “Mossaman Commodities”? Are there databases and trackers that can show you where the fishing boat has been sailing? What can you learn by analysing Instagram images – and how do you go back in time on the internet?
  • Unlock the possibilities of OSINT – safely. The self-paced course reveals how vital OSINT is to investigations into corruption, money laundering and other serious crimes.
  • By exploiting all possible sources on the regular web, deep web and dark web, it is possible to gather a huge amount of information and evidence with only a laptop, a well-organised collection plan and some smart thinking.
  • You’ll learn practical ways to search for information without blowing your cover. This includes recommended browsers and search engine settings, plus apps and add-ons to increase your privacy and efficiency.
  • Certificate of Completion Available.
