Law enforcement officers specialised in cyber investigations and investigators who want to acquire knowledge in Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) techniques are welcome to join our next online course starting on 12 October 2020. The course will be carried out through CEPOL's virtual learning environment.

The aim of this e-learning activity is to improve the collection, evaluation, collation, analysis, and distribution of information for the purpose of tackling all forms of crime. The learning strategy is focused to enhance the capacity of law enforcement officers to integrate OSINT tools into cyber investigations.

Upon completion of the course, the participants are expected to be able to:

  • Provide a comprehensive overview on the main work processes and general techniques that are necessary for the accomplishment of Law Enforcement OSINT;
  • Make an overview about Law Enforcement OSINT approach;
  • Explore the information available in various open sources;
  • Enhance the use of general OSINT techniques suitable for the collection of intelligence;
  • Strengthen the investigative methods, analysis, and distribution of information for the purpose of tackling all forms of crimes in clear web, social media, and dark web.

While there is no specific time slot when participants shall be available for completing the course tasks, they should follow the course continuously. Completion of the course would require around 1.5 hours’ investment / working day from the attending participants during the length of 4 weeks.

Nomination: The online course offers 25-35 seats altogether. In case you are a law enforcement officer and interested to participate, please contact your local CEPOL National Unit / CEPOL National Contact Point as soon as possible.
