OSINT: Build or buy?
– The real value in bringing Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) inside an organization, argues Luca Scagliarini, CMO at Expert System, is the ability to create a knowledge base that transforms risk assessment from static or infrequent, to dynamic and immediate.
An OSINT system is one of the most important strategic tools a company can use. When it comes to mitigating risk, if you’re not taking advantage of open source intelligence, you’re leaving a tremendous amount of insight, and profit, on the table. And, if you’re not considering in-sourcing this activity—creating internal teams rather than or in parallel to outsourcing this to a vendor—you’re missing out on the real business value that this can bring your organization.
