OSINT AS A TOOL FOR CONTINUOUS EVALUATION & Security vetting

Threats and indicators of risk are increasingly present in publicly available data online. Effective, timely, and ongoing security vetting and screening of government employees, security-cleared personnel and international military students requires a combination of traditional methods and advanced Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) technologies to mitigate the risk of insider threats.

Using traditional methods alone presents challenges to security vetting teams trying to keep pace with:

  • the vast scale of security vetting tasks
  • the evolving online threat environment
  • societal and political upheavals driving increased risk

In this white paper, we explore real-life examples, including an attack by a visiting international officer to compare traditional vetting practices to a continuous evaluation approach enabled by OSINT for a proactive rather than reactive approach to insider threat detection.
