"As the first and only non-vendor specific, industry-wide OSINT certification, the GIAC Open Source Intelligence (GOSI) certification represents a huge milestone in the worlds of open source intelligence and cyber reconnaissance. It creates a marker from which students can be recognized for their achievements and competence in the OSINT field of study. Whether they are performing social media analysis of a target or just "fancy googling," the GOSI certification shows they have a strong foundation in OSINT." -Micah Hoffman, SEC487 Course Author
