Open Source Intelligence

Open Source Intelligence

Open Source Intelligence or “OSINT” is defined by the Department of Defense (DoD) as: “produced from publicly available information that is collected, exploited, and disseminated in a timely manner to an appropriate audience for the purpose of addressing a specific intelligence requirement.” This process is also commonly referred to as “Digital Footprinting”. Secure Network Technologies uses this and other legally approved, non-intrusive tactics to identify and analyze an individual’s online presence.
