- Publicly available information that was once only the foray of law enforcement investigators, has now been recognised for it’s value by a wide range of industries and professions. Thanks in part thanks to the evolution of the internet and increasing accessibility to content and data – plus a multitude of widely publicised success stories fuelling people’s appetites to participate, everyone wants a piece of OSINT investigations!
- Should the practice of interrogating OSINT be regulated and more intensively controlled? Should training be more widely available and licences and accreditation become compulsory for anyone involved in the practice, to ensure that ethics are considered and the responsibilities involved more widely recognised? We are now seeing various members of the public working to identify offenders – in both organised and unorganised manners.
- Where do we see OSINT going in the future, and is growing interest and participation likely to streamline and improve processes, or simply cause more problems and complications?
