Amplify your Intelligence or OSINT collection capabilities!

You already use one or more search engines, so why not leverage some tips and tricks to get more precise outcomes in less time?!

Alternative & Advanced Search Engine Intelligence (AASEI) begins with explaining search engines and algorithms – how they work for Intelligence operations. From here, students are exposed to a variety of search engines (beyond Google, Yandex, and Bing). Various search engines are surveyed for use cases and regions used. From this point, students are introduced to concepts and techniques to alter or improve their search engine results and efficiency. The remainder of the class is used to refine and re-enforce students’ comprehension of advanced search operators, providing students with a whole new area of the internet to use for Intelligence collection and analysis.

In brief, this course covers the following via lectures, labs, and demonstrations:

  • Algorithms behind the search engines
  • Non-Google Search EnginesRegional
  • Specialized Focus
  • Techniques for more effective searching abroad
  • Considerations and use of each search engine
  • Advanced operators for conducting searches for Intelligence operations
