What People Are Saying About The OSINTion
TFW when you blow up the training chat with “Do you even Regex bro?” and it turns out the instructor does in fact “regex bro” and has an entire course on regular expressions. Needless to say, I’ll be taking @C_3PJoe ‘s regex course when it’s offered. #osint #regex #python— Tom (@human_decoded) January 26, 2020
I thoroughly enjoyed the brilliant Joe Gray @C_3PJoe 's "Intro to people OSINT/OSINT for Missing Persons" course!!! I highly recommend this course for anyone with an interest in Open-Source Intelligence! 😃💻⚔ #osint #infosec #joegray #neverstoplearning— Heidi Rolleston (@heidi_veronica8) January 26, 2020

As a member of the Password Inspection Agency, Joe has consistently performed well in Capture the Flag events. Specifically those involving OSINT. Examples include 2nd Place in the HackFest Quebec and Winning the TraceLabs OSINT Search Party during DEFCON 28 and again at DEFCON 29. Joe placed 4th in the DerbyCon OSINT CTF and 3rd in the NCPTF OSINT Search Party.

Furthermore, Joe authored the forthcoming book, Practical Social Engineering, due in late 2021 via NoStarch Press.
Joe is truly passionate about all things Intelligence. He is frequently researching new techniques and methods to enhance collection and analysis. Beyond OSINT, Joe is also aggressively researching Image Intelligence (IMINT), Social Media Intelligence (SOCMINT), Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI), Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT), and Data Science (Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence/AI, etc.) from a lens of Open Source techniques. Joe is consistently finding ways to leverage open source data to enable adjacent forms of Intelligence beyond OSINT.
