You may have heard the old saying: "Everyone wants to do OSINT until it's time to go do OSINT stuff". If that's not a saying, it should be. On the surface, Open Source Intelligence gathering sounds fun and super cool.


Picture this: You're sitting alone in your apartment. Lights dimmed. The glow from your laptop illuminates a face framed by a black hooded sweatshirt. Soon, secrets will reveal themselves to you. Truths never meant to be known. Fingers rest on your keyboard. You exhale. And begin typing in Google...."

And that's about as far as most people get on their OSINT journey.


OSINT collection is hard and is even harder to get started in when you have no idea where to begin. This is where Joe's Introduction to People OSINT course comes in.
