The unique value of open source intelligence

Open source intelligence is commonly used in a range of sectors, including the military, federal agencies, law enforcement, insurance, private investigation, and the legal sector. Each of these agencies relies on open source intelligence(OSINT) for different purposes and is influenced by publicly available information for their particular work.

For example, law enforcement agencies use OSINT to help apprehend criminals and disrupt crime, including but not limited to cybercrime, fraud, violent crime, and terrorism.

Criminal investigators use OSINT to find information about their subjects and to detect illegal activity online.

Financial intelligence teams use OSINT as a starting point in money laundering and embezzlement cases, track cryptocurrency addresses during digital currency forensics, and assist in identity theft cases.

Business intelligence teams rely on OSINT to identify target audiences, perform competitive analysis, and make brand protection cases.

Cybersecurity professionals use OSINT for threat analysis, penetration testing, and hacking.
