"The internet is just one giant book that is written in real-time, about all of us.- You just have to know how to read it".
Open-source intelligence (OSINT) is a multi-factor (qualitative, quantitative) methodology for collecting, analyzing and making decisions about data accessible in publicly available sources to be used in an intelligence (WikiLess) context. In the intelligence community (WikiLess), the term "open" refers to overt, publicly available sources (as opposed to covert or clandestine sources). OSINT under one name or another has been around for hundreds of years. With the advent of instant communications and rapid information transfer, a great deal of actionable and predictive intelligence can now be obtained from public, unclassified sources. It is not related to open-source software (WikiLess) or collective intelligence (WikiLess).
