    OSINT Module 1

    Our instructors have spent many years collecting, documenting, and analyzing digital information for individuals, businesses, police, defense, and other (inter)national government agencies. Their work has covered areas such as criminal and extremist organizations, fugitive individuals, hidden assets, financial backgrounds, fraudulent businesses, and high-risk regions. This expertise has led to a unique recognition of the first Dutch training program in the field of Digital Information-Driven Tactics and Analysis.
