Jane's Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) Training

Transform open-source information into actionable intelligence

The consulting team from Jane's by IHS Markit delivers workshops that provide defense and security professionals with the latest Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) methods and techniques. The courses, which are both theoretically and practically valuable, enable trainees to go back to their desks and make an immediate impact on their organizations.

We offer two types of training solutions: Courses and programs customized for organizations as well as open registration training workshops that appeal to a wide variety of participants.

Customized training solutions

We work with a range of client organizations to optimize the OSINT skills and abilities of their staff. We design and base our programs on an initial training needs analysis and can provide a progressive sequence of courses and post-training review sessions to ensure that organizations and analysts derive the maximum benefit.

Open registration training solutions

We hold a regular series of open registration OSINT training workshops in our offices. We design these workshops to provide defense and security professionals with essential practical skills to transform open-source and social media information into intelligence.
