The KeyNorth team has trained several thousand learners over the last 10 years in open-source intelligence and online investigations. We offer training to organizations and individuals to enable them to find more and better online information, faster and with less risk.

We offer on-line or in-class bilingual learning options as well as blended programs which combine both styles of teaching. Please click on one of the images below and you’ll be redirected to our website dedicated to open-source intelligence.

OSINT Training Facts

Recertification in OSINT Training

We conducted research related to the need for recertification in OSINT skills. 100% of those polled reported a need to recertify their OSINT Skills. Half of the individuals who completed the poll felt that OSINT skills should be updated or recertified at least every year. Others felt that every one to three years would suffice

Jobs that Require OSINT Skills

We conducted a review of 60 job advertisements posted between February 2022 and July 2023 that reference a need for OSINT skills. We focused our research on primarily Canadian organizations. 40% of the job advertisements are from law enforcement and regulatory agencies; 15 % are from communications and private IT security companies, and 13% are from the financial sector. 11 % are from organizations in the services sector like transportation, housing, health and education. Other diverse industries are also hiring OSINT analysts including media and journalism organizations, humanitarian agencies, environmental organizations and the fashion industry. Job posts mention the need for candidates with experience in OSINT and also with certifications in OSINT.
