Open Source Intelligence Techniques by Michael Bazzell 5th edition. I took his online Intelligence gathering course a couple of years ago and was fairly impressed. Just upgraded from the 3rd edition book that came with the course. If you want to learn great ways of gathering open source intelligence, and the proper tool set to use to do it, then you want this book.

Anyone else used/read any of Bazzell's resources?

    Problem with taking this class is that you then want to dox everyone just to practice. I KID I KID!

    Sure, what kind of information are you looking for? the inteltechniques.com site will probably give you more information but will definitely answer questions

    Does that mean you're getting a copy of the book? Looking into the self-paced course? its worth the price of admission (like a grand and you get a year's access and notifications when the material gets updated.)

    Thank you! Yep, I ordered the book already. Two day shipping on Amazon prime. I need to keep telling myself to stay focused on Sec+. :D
  • jcundiffjcundiff Member Posts: 486 ■■■■□□□□□□
    Use this as added incentive to study and pass that Sec+ so you can play with the fun stuff :)
