Social Media Intelligence (SOCMINT) training solutions provided by OS2INT in Europe, Africa and the Middle East

Social Media Intelligence

Automating the collection of targeted social media data and implementing essential investigation capabilities

Social media has become an important source of information for police, security and intelligence forces - reinforcing the need to develop effective means to collect and analyse valuable material

Social media has come to influence human activity and enable people to obtain information that would otherwise be difficult to obtain. Social media offers consolidated personal information, network connections, and multiple reports (status messages) over a given period of time - presenting a unique opportunity for Law Enforcement, Military, Government and Corporate organisations to efficiently obtain targeted data and information concerning threats and threat agents.
