This course is designed to hone specifically in on the processes and tools used to perform “People Intelligence” or “People OSINT” in situations where investigators are seeking to find missing people, some of which do not want to be found. This focuses on validating the information discovered and using it to pivot to valuable information, in both a CTF setting (such as Trace Labs’ CTFs/OSINT Search Parties) and law enforcement.
In brief, this course covers the following:
- Social Media
- Intelligence Processes and Cycles
- TraceLabs categories
- Case Studies
- A simulated CTF where the class collaboratively works to try to find an actual missing person (The primary reason that this course is not ever recorded)

Had a fun nerdy Friday night with @C_3PJoe in his Missing Person's OSINT class. Bummed I can't participate in the CTF tomorrow but hope everyone kick ass and finds some folks. pic.twitter.com/jtWFkP1w5f— Tracie Martin (@datSecuritychic) February 1, 2020
Uplifting content learned with @C_3PJoe . Thank you so much for the great class in "Intro to people osint/osint for missing persons" training.— Rodrigo (@Rodrigo16198395) January 27, 2020
Tonight we heard @C_3PJoe walk us through the basics of People OSINT and more specifically how it relates to the @TraceLabs ctf. Great course and worth the money. #osint #tracelabs #ctf #MissingPerson

Spending the day with @C_3PJoe was awesome. I learned a lot from both his OSINT courses and feel better equipped for next week's @TraceLabs Missing People CTF.— R3LL1K (@R3LL1K) January 26, 2020
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
