Introduction to People OSINT/Missing People OSINT

Class Description

This course, taught by a member of the winning team at the DEFCON 28 OSINT Search party, is designed to hone specifically in on the processes and tools used to perform “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 –https://www.tracelabs.org/getinvolved/ctf/) and law enforcement.

This course is approved by TraceLabs:

This course has evolved from a 4-hour course to a 6-hour course, and now to an 8-hour course. This LIVE Missing Persons OSINT course, approved by TraceLabs seeks to prepare OSINT enthusiasts and private investigators for techniques used to find missing people.

In brief, this course covers the following:

  • Social Media
  • OSINT 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)
