Dear colleagues,

I have the pleasure of inviting you to join one of the most successful OSINT training programmes on offer today, the RIS OSINT Pathfinder training programme. Due to popular demand, we decided to do four instead of just three this year, so you have plenty of opportunity to choose one that fits best in your agenda. 

YOU are in control!

The OSINT Pathfinder training programme aims to share with delegates the RIS OSINT Methodology of systematic, structured and planned (online) research in open sources to find the best, most relevant and reliable information for decision making, and, to use the RIS OSINT Dossier technique to keep digital track of the research to allow continuation on a later date without loss  of information or time.


  1. The full OSINT Pathfinder training programme ;
  2. A personal, print, wire-bound RIS OSINT Handbook to keep ;
  3. Personalised OSINT training website with the latest information that didn't make it into the book, extensive OSINT background literature list, background literature on intelligence analysis ; Quick Reference Sheets with the full search command languages of the major Internet search engines, social media search engines as well as of the largest commercial information providers ;
  4. OSINT Software package with a fully adapted Mozilla browser for OSINT research ;     
  5. Access to the Open Source Intelligence Resource Discovery Toolkit with hundreds of relevant open sources ;
  6. Access to the RIS Helpdesk for questions, support and consultancy  for a year after the training ; 
  7. Catering, lunch, WiFi, and an invitation to join us at the OSINT Icebreaker social event.
