Three Day Online Certificate Course on Cyber-Crimes Investigation using Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) Tools and Technique’s
The amount of data being pushed to the Internet each minute is staggering. There are millions of hours of videos, billions of images, and zitabits of text that cannot be indexed by a mere search engine algorithm. The indexing of the data is distributed complexly across the Web technologies - on Surface web, Deep web and Dark web of the internet. Understanding, capturing and investigating these kinds of data sources needs special skills in cybernetics; this is what this certification does. The course starts with the process of collecting and analysing data and then quickly moves into investigating techniques to gain access to un-indexed data. It explains and practically demonstrates a broad array of Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) tools, such as setting up an OSINT analysis platform, accessing data from surface web and deep web and exploring the world of dark web using encrypted web browsers on the internet.
This certification, being a foundational course in open-source intelligence (OSINT) tools and techniques, teaches participants how to find, collect, and analyse data from the Internet. Far from being a beginner class, this course teaches participants the OSINT framework to be successful in finding and using online information, reinforced with over 30 hands-on bootcamp exercises.
The learning strategy is focused to enhance the capacity of participants to integrate OSINT tools into cyber investigations.
Upon completion of the course, the participants are expected to be able to:
Learning Modules: Day Wise
Day -1 OSINT Basics:
Day-2: Tools and engines for use in your OSINT searches:
Day -3: Technical Scenarios and Use Cases:
Candidates who are pursuing graduation or had graduated are eligible to register.
Duration: Three Days
Registration Process: Submission of Online Application Form along with the requisite fee.
Intake : 70 per batch. The admission will be first come first serve basis. In case, the number of enrolments’ exceeds 70 and if there are sufficient number of candidates for more number of batches, the University will continue the programme for more number of batches and the schedule will be intimated to the candidates immediately after closure of the admissions.
