What Is Open Source Intelligence (OSINT)
It’s not a secret that today it is difficult to find a person or organization that has no digital footprints at all. Open source intelligence OSINT refers to any data that can be gathered legally by using free, public sources such as online media or social networks, for instance. Using the Internet as a main tool, OSINT investigators track, collect and synthesize all digital footprints related to the topics or persons under investigation. They thoroughly compile all the available information to develop case reports. These reports are sufficiently substantiated to be presented as supporting evidence in the court of law, for insurance claims, corporate personnel inquiries, or any other purposes demanding a high level of legitimacy.

OSINT Services for Business Owners and Corporate Executives
Entering into a contract, partnership, or any other business relation is an involved venture with potentially serious consequences. When firms enter into business deals, they are mainly focused on the financial side of things; thorough research on prospective counterparties might seem to be a demonstration of distrust.
- Can you answer with the confidence that these arrangements, especially those carrying long-term implications, will be truly beneficial to your business?
- Can you afford to risk it? Do you really know who you are entering a relationship with?
- Are there any chances that another party’s reputation can tarnish or even ruin yours?
- Have they or are they facing now litigation cases or fraud allegations?
- How do other counterparties perceive them?
- Are their moral and ethical codes aligned with yours?
- Is there a history of disciplinary actions filed with a local professional regulatory board?
- Do they have undesired political or business associations?
- Is there anything in their background that can have a negative impact on your stakeholders?
Our open source intelligence investigators will answer these and many other questions to give you peace of mind. We will make sure that you enter into business deals with a clear awareness of your counterparties.
Human Resources Open Source Intelligence Services
Whether you are in a corporate human resource office or recruitment business, you are entrusted to place the right individuals. Background checks are standard procedures when individuals are considered for hire. In most cases, those are comprised of running the contact reference, financial, and criminal checks. Those checks, however, do not paint the complete picture. For example, the same individual could have committed crimes in other jurisdictions, remain under criminal investigation, or have not yet been charged at that moment. He or she can be a member of a nefarious fringe organization posing social or even criminal threats to society. A potential threat to the corporation can come from less offensive but a rather costly behavior pattern, such as spending many work hours on social media sites. Our investigators can help businesses get a better view of the potential hires or existing employees and contractors. MBS Tech offers stand-alone reviews or ongoing monitoring services to ensure the safety and security of your business operations and reputation.
OSINT Investigations for Insurance Companies
Insurance fraud is very costly, with insurers paying off millions of dollars in fraudulent claims. Modern technology offers multiple outlets and opportunities to conceal wrongdoings; tech-savvy fraudsters get better and better at using them. As a result, the investigation of the claimed legitimacy is becoming more and more tenuous and technically challenging. You need to have on your side forces that can outperform and outsmart offenders. MBS Tech offers services in support of insurance investigation, which can save a great amount of time and money. Out tenured cyber space investigators can help discover data, which is difficult to be uncovered through conventional means.
Open Source Intelligence Investigations for Legal Services
The availability of accurate and complete data is critical for any type of litigation, civil or criminal. Law firms or any other legal services, whether representing the plaintiff or defense, need to have at their disposal all data, whether it is “good” or “bad.” Availability or lack of this information can make or break the case. Some examples of data that we can help with obtaining are listed below:
- Skip tracing, finding witnesses, known or unknown at the time of the incident
- Obtaining discussion of the incident by plaintiff, defendant or witnesses on social media
- Obtaining online-located evidence of the incident
- Discovery of hidden assets or concealed evidence
- Identifying changes in the mode of living, such as the acquisition of luxury vehicles, vacation homes, expensive house upgrades, etc.
