    Interview With Loránd Bodó - OSINT Jobs

    This week, Micah (@WebBreacher), Michael James (@Ginsberg5150) and Christina (@ChristinaLekati) talk with Loránd Bodó (@LorandBodo) about his new project OSINT Jobs (https://www.osint-jobs.com), a platform that shares hand-picked, OSINT-related job openings and helps the OSINT community grow their skills and advance their careers. 

    They discuss about the diversity of OSINT-related jobs in different industries, and about how Loránd is curating the job opportunities he publishes on the website. 

    They also talk about utilizing the content that is published within www.osint-jobs.com which includes interviews, blog posts and a podcast. Those resources help individuals to better understand what career path to follow within the realm of OSINT, how to develop the skills necessary for their dream job, and how to get connected and apply for jobs.

    OSINT Live Stream : OSINT News & Tools - January & February 2022

    OSINT Live Stream : OSINT News & Tools - January & February 2022

    Join The OSINT Curious Project team as we talk about some news and tools in #OSINT. This week, Micah (@WebBreacher) and Christina (@ChristinaLekati) briefly talk about the new OSINT Curious blog : "Location of an IP Address" and the dangers of relying too heavily on the geolocations that become available through IP addresses. Sector035 (@Sector035), who authored the blog, will cover this topic in more detail next week. They also talked about the Geowifi, a tool that aggregates wifi data from multiple sources, and discussed #OSINT use cases with the tool Cleanup.Pictures, a tool that is used to retouch images by removing objects, people, texts and other disturbances. Micah and Christina also talked about the role of gut feelings and hunches in OSINT as well as how they can support or hinder the intelligence analysis process. Listening to our gut feeling is important, but in intelligence analysis one needs to also be aware of their biases, and of how their past experiences might affect their gut feeling and their judgement. Last, they talked about Obsidian, a note-taking and knowledge management tool that provides many possibilities when it comes to documenting, organizing, and creating connections between data - or even their thoughts.

    Livestream with Nicole Beckwith

    Livestream with Nicole Beckwith

    This week, Micah Hoffman, Christina Lekati, John TerBush, and Josh Huff talked with Nicole Beckwith (https://twitter.com/NicoleBeckwith) about mental health in OSINT investigations. 

    This conversation was filled with practical advice and tips that you can apply before, during and after an investigation. 

    We talked about the Honeycomb effect and about preparing your investigative workspace by creating as few mental anchors as possible in order to have a clear separation between investigating and the rest of your everyday life and activities. 

    We analyzed the H.A.L.T. technique, which refers to checking whether you are Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired before or during an investigation, and making sure that you take care of those needs. 

    We also talked about listening to your body to recognize signs of tension during an investigation and taking a step back when you recognize these signs by applying the 5-4-3-2-1 grounding method: focusing on 5 things that you see, 4 things that you feel, 3 things that you hear, 2 things that you smell and 1 thing that you taste- preferably lemon water. 

    We finished our conversation by discussing the flip side of the coin- getting into your target's mind, establishing their baseline and finding their motives.
