Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) is produced from publicly available information, is collected, analyzed, and disseminated on time to an appropriate audience, and addresses a specific intelligence requirement. It is not limited to what can be found using Google or other search engines, although the open web is an essential component.
According to MRFR analysis, the global OSINT market is expected to witness high growth during the forecast period. The increased availability of open-source data coupled with rising cyber threats, terrorism, and other illegal practices are some of the factors driving the growth of the market. However, the large volume of open-source information available could hinder the growth of this market in the future.
OSINT relies on open-source data, which is raw, noisy, and unstructured. It is accessible and can be retrieved and modified legally. Increased availability of public data is a driving force for the open-source intelligence systems to carry out operations. The data is available from several sources like social media, print media, digital media, articles, blog publications, online forums, videos, government reports, telephone directories, press conferences, journals, academic research papers, financial databases, patents, dissertations, and newsletters. This data is openly available and legal to use.
Social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube lets us access the hobbies, location, working status, community, and other raw data, which is beneficial for the government security agencies to keep track of the activities happening across the globe. This has led many countries to keep track of the citizens (residing and alien) for a preventive measure from the threat towards terrorism. OSINT involves the acquisition of data, which is verbal, written, or electronically transferred and procured legally. OSINT has become very useful in data collection from foreign sources majorly due to its availability.
Global OSINT Market was valued at USD 3,341.3 Million in 2018, and it is expected to record a CAGR of 17.4% during the forecast period, 2020-2026.
