Open Source Intelligence Gathering
Do you know what information is out there about your company, you, and your executives?
Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) refers to publicly available information that can be obtained by anyone with decent research skills and a web browser. Most people feel they have their information in a secured place on their network but do not realize their own website or easily accessible network is inadvertently revealing sensitive and potentially harmful information.
We put our open source research skills to use and find places where data has been leaked to better protect your personal AND business reputation.
Some areas where your data may inadvertently be made public:
– Metadata from documents on public facing websites can reveal network information, authors of the document, and a myriad of other types of information which can result in sensitive data becoming publicly available.
–Employees inadvertently hosting company documents on unauthorized systems (home FTP server, cloud service with weak passwords, etc).
–Vendors hosting contracts or other sensitive data that is not secure can leak trade secrets or private business deals.
