OSINT mindset to protect your organization

Submitted Apr 21, 2019

Information on the public internet is increasing exponentially. The public information about your organization includes employees, email addresses, public facing digital assets (domains, subdomains & IP addresses), documents, policies and much more. Anyone having access to internet could gather more information about your organization than you think.

Open Source Intelligence, also known as OSINT in short, is an art of gathering publicly available data to derive useful information. The usage of the information is upto the OSINT investigator, it could be used for or against your organization. In this talk we would dive into an OSINT investigator’s perspective of information. We would have a detailed look at different ways one could gather information about your organization and how the information could be used in weakening or compromising your security.

We would end the session with the available ways to reduce harmful effect of your public information. The attendees would leave the talk with a deep understanding of how information could harm against you, along with ways to prevent it.
