GENEVA EVENT: Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) best practices and case studies – 28.05.2019 @ GCSP

Swissintell Event OSINT

Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) is much more than a simple collection discipline. Rather, it encompasses the technical, analytic and procedural tools needed to support strategic and operational decision making and action.

This event will demonstrate – through OSINT best practices and case studies – how businesses of all sizes can use OSINT to develop an effective, low-cost intelligence capability that supports all four pillars of intelligence for business.

This event will be held in English, but questions can be asked in German or French.
