Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) refers to the process of collecting, analyzing, and making use of information that is publicly available. This information can come from a wide variety of sources, including media outlets, public databases, internet forums, social media platforms, and more. OSINT is a crucial tool in the world of intelligence and investigation, providing valuable insights that can inform decision-making and strategy.
Blockchain transactions and cryptocurrency activities, while offering a degree of transparency, often present a partial view of the activities of individuals and entities. This is where OSINT becomes invaluable. By supplementing on-chain investigation and analysis with off-chain OSINT, we can provide a fuller, more comprehensive picture about the individuals and entities that are the targets of investigation or due diligence.
OSINT allows us to delve into the off-chain activities of these entities, uncovering relevant information that might not be immediately apparent from on-chain data alone. This could include identifying connections between individuals, uncovering hidden off-chain assets, or revealing potential risks or opportunities.
At Cryptosec, our experienced investigators understand the nuances of OSINT and are adept at executing legally-defensible OSINT investigations.
