Isabel -Forensic Analyst
I was intrigued at the prospect of taking Knowmad's OSINT course as part of the IMSISS (International Master in Security, Intelligence and Strategic Studies), and can say the course was one of the most impactful takeaways from the program as a whole. The course readings, videos, and follow-up activities are engaging, intuitive, and at times challenging all while providing an in-depth introduction to the multifaceted aspects of OSINT. From satellite imagery to social media analysis Knowmad provided a strong platform and further direction to dive down the OSINT rabbit hole.
Matt -Master's Student in Security, Intelligence and Strategic Studies (University of Glasgow)
The Knowmad OSINT course was a great opportunity to learn about the varieties of OSINT and the techniques needed to become an OSINT analyst myself. It actually motivated me to reach out to a student group in my city which now has formed an OSINT subgroup in which we train our skills. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is interested in the world of intelligence gathering.
