OSINT is extremely powerful when it is applied correctly – it is as much a process as it is a methodology.   It produces intelligence that supports decision makers in taking a particular course of action under often critical situations, for example; in international conflicts, law enforcement to trace suspects, businesses to assess an operating environment or whether to form a joint venture, new opportunities, security and military operations, financial institutions in KYC assessments and many more applications.  It has become a strategy that many organisations now utilise providing speed and cost effectiveness to their intelligence operations.

Leveraging data from open sources can provide valuable insights through processing, but this can become very overwhelming when dealing with large quantities of data under time pressure.  This is where Maltego steps in, it allows for the aggregation of data which can be linked together exposing relationships, events, locations, dates, assets, technology, organisations, people and the web such as websites, domains and social media.

This course will take you through all the steps from managing graphs, dealing with high volumes of data, making data relevant, using transforms to discover data and include it in graphs, making use of alternative tools to import data from outside Maltego, collaboration with team members and production of reports. Following these steps and processes provided, will be a game changer in terms of your own abilities placing you ahead of the pack in terms efficiency and professionalism.

As Simon Sinek says “the purpose of a car is not to buy gas, the purpose of a car is to go somewhere”, this is the same with OSINT, it has to go somewhere, Maltego is the car and information is the fuel.

About the instructor

Wizard of OSINT

Andrew Fordred

My name is Andrew Fordred, my career began in law enforcement with the Crime Intelligence Services of the South African police focusing on terrorism and organised crime, and later was employed in a number of corporate positions in capacities such as risk management, and later, forensic investigations. In 2007 started my own business providing forensic investigations, intelligence, risk management consultancy, court testimony and litigation support. Also, completed a forensic investigation degree focusing on forensic intelligence with a qualitative case study of the illegal narcotics trade and syndicates. Currently I provide cyber intelligence and investigations, counterintelligence and, security and privacy services to clients. I am also the founder of the Cyber Institute and a Director on the Board of Advisors for the OSMOSIS Institute (USA). In addition, I am a public speaker at events such as the Journey of the Hacker Windhoek Namibia, OSMOSIS 2018 Las Vegas USA, Cyber Threats against Children UNICEF and the Munich Cyber Crime Conference by Maltego. This is my opportunity to share my knowledge with students, to support you through this journey and help you develop some incredible skills and transform knowledge into real results.
