OSINT | Open Source Intelligence Investigation Services

What is OSINT?

OSINT, or open-source intelligence, refers to gathering data from publicly available sources to use in an analytical context. These sources include the Internet, social media platforms, public government records, professional and academic publications, and more. 

OSINT’s investigation effectiveness lies in its ability to provide information about individuals, groups, or organizations without direct interaction or intrusion. OSINT is a powerful tool for gathering and preserving evidence, understanding social connections, and gaining insights into behaviors and patterns. Its non-intrusive nature allows investigators to collect relevant information legally and ethically, making it an invaluable component of modern investigative processes.

Types of Investigations OSINT (Open-Source Intelligence) is Commonly Used

OSINT for Infidelity Cases

OSINT is highly effective for some infidelity investigations, especially after identifying the affair partner. It supplements the case with additional proof of the affair and helps determine its duration. OSINT investigators also use this method while searching for hidden online dating profiles of a partner, offering a discreet and legal means to gather crucial information. Using OSINT translates to a more comprehensive understanding of the situation, enabling informed decisions based on a broader evidence base without confrontation or privacy invasion.

OSINT for Child Custody Cases

For child custody investigations, OSINT can examine the co-parent or their associates interacting with the children, potentially exposing safety concerns. This method is beneficial as it discreetly documents and secures evidence of potential risks before they can be concealed, providing concrete proof for legal proceedings. Leveraging OSINT allows for a non-invasive way to protect your children’s well-being and strengthen your case in custody disputes, offering peace of mind and a stronger legal stance.

OSINT for Fraudulent Disability Claims Investigations

OSINT investigators commonly investigate fraudulent disability claims by scrutinizing social media and other online sources for evidence that may contradict a claimant’s reported limitations. Additionally, OSINT is a strategic precursor to surveillance, providing recent photos for claimant identification and insights into their interests and habits. This intelligence informs the optimal times for surveillance, enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of the investigation. OSINT investigators discreetly document evidence before anyone can conceal it and preserve irrefutable proof for legal proceedings, ensuring that disability support is rightfully allocated.
