Overview

This is a challenge rather than a course for the serious OSINT practitioner or online investigator.

Your investigation and/or intelligence skills should ideally be at an intermediate to advanced level.  Even if you are still starting out, give it a go anyway as this could well prepare you for what is to come and provide you a guide as to future skill development.

The challenge will take you through the streets of Las Vegas and it will be required to geolocate items ranging from images to social media posts, identify people, trace email addresses and telephone numbers, locate vehicles, find cameras and much more.

No paid tools are required for this challenge, just your ingenuity, curiosity to discover information and time, do not forget the time, it is essential.

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.

This is the best real-life-like scenario I have come across thus far! I have only reached the fourth question because the other questions are so challenging. Who knows, I may looking into the questions too much and going further then I need to, but that is part of the challenge: what documentation is required? I better catch everything and sort it out later!!! The first question is not too difficult to understand, but to derive the correct answer from the evidence one must take many simple things into consideration; it is a perfect beginning challenge that definitely sets the bar. I had to stop the challenge so that I could take the Base Camp course, just so I can learn the trick-of-the -trade that will make my investigating more productive. This is the type of OSINT Challenge I have been searching for!
