OSMOSIS announces Globalcast!  

The OSMOSIS Institute has partnered with CyberSocialHub.com to roll OSMOSIScon out virtually as a Globalcast. In-person attendees will be joined by our cyber audience from around the globe. Placing OSMOSIS online, months before the actual event, allows us to create a virtual community of OSINTers where the platform is open to chatrooms, vendor interactions, continuous content, and like-minded professionals discussing our tradecraft in a safe community. Watch the announcement from Cynthia Hetherington, CEO of Hetherington group below!

This was one of the most informative and educational conferences I have attended. I met so many talented and wonderful people. The networking sessions were invaluable. Thank you for everything.

Held in SoCal’s sunny San Diego at the Bahia Resort Hotel, the 6th annual conference offers a lightning-speed three days of hands-on training. Network with some of the most recognized social media and open source experts from North America and across the pond.

Hundreds of cyber intelligence investigators representing business, finance, journalism, legal, and law enforcement will emerge from the conference with finessed open source skills that aid in exposing fraud, identifying geolocations, and cracking seemingly impenetrable dark leads—all with a greater understanding of how to protect one’s identity and abide by national and international laws.

  • Attend the Awards Luncheon, where the OSMOSIS Institute recognizes extraordinary OSINT work in the following categories: Open Source Vendor of the Year, Opens Source Intelligence Champion of the Year, Open Source Investigator of the Year, Open Source Female Trailblazer of the Year, Open Source Non-profit of the Year. (Nominations open July 1, 2020 and close August 7, 2020.)
