As the year draws to a close, the keen OSINT investigator takes stock in what was learned over the last 11 months and what is on the horizon for due diligence investigations, background checks, social media research and monitoring, and everything from Timbuktu to Tahiti. This hands-on, intermediate to advanced webinar is a companion to our July webinar, Social & Google Summer Hitlist.

20/20 is hindsight. As we launch into 2021, Hg’s expert staff have culled the OSINT arena to provide insight and understanding into the most important tools, open sources, search techniques, and online monitoring services available now and provide insight into where to keep your pulse in the new decade. Upon completion of the course, field investigators will be able to
• Implement the best search techniques and resources of 2020 into their research, analysis, and reporting
• Identify and select the best online monitoring alert services, both free and fee-based, currently available and develop transparent reports for clients
• Become aware of new OSINT tools, techniques, services, and options in 2021
• Understand how to keep up with new search engines for investigations and research


All participants will receive handouts on concepts and investigative techniques.
