OSINT and cyber security are two inextricably linked fields that play an important role in today’s digital world. OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) provides access to a huge amount of public information that can be used to analyze and gain insight into various entities, events and trends. Cybersecurity, on the other hand, refers to measures and strategies aimed at protecting digital assets from cyber threats and attacks. OSINT’s primary contribution to cybersecurity is providing access to information that can be used to identify potential cyber threats, analyze identity data, and uncover potential vulnerabilities.
OSINT analysts can monitor the activity of attackers, monitor social networks, analyze publicly available data to identify anomalies and risks. While OSINT helps gather information, cybersecurity focuses on protecting that information. This includes implementing measures to protect networks, systems and data from attacks, recovering from incidents, developing security policies and more. As threats in cyberspace become more complex and distinct, using OSINT provides more context and insight to effectively detect and counter attacks.
