Commercial Intelligence or, Open-source intelligence (OSINT) Is a multi-methods (qualitative, quantitative) methodology for collecting, analyzing and making decisions about data accessible in publicly available source to be used in an intelligence context. The term “Open” refers to overt, public ly available sources (as opposed to covert, clandestine or private sources). It is not related to open source software or collective intelligence.OSINT sources can be divided up into six different categories of information flow: 1. Media, print newspapers, magazines, radio, and television from across and between countries. 2. Internet, online publications, blogs, discussion groups, citizen media (i.e. – cell phone videos, and user created content), YouTube, and other social media websites (i.e. – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.). This source also outpaces a variety of other sources due to its timeliness and ease of access. 3. Public Government Data, public government reports, budgets, hearings, telephone directories, press conferences, websites, and speeches. Although this source comes from an official source they are publicly accessible and may be used openly and freely. 4. Professional and Academic Publications, information acquired from journals, conferences, symposia, academic papers, dissertations, and theses. 5. Commercial Data, commercial imagery, financial and industrial assessments, and databases. 6. Grey literature, technical reports, preprints, patents, working papers, business documents, unpublished works, and newsletters. OSINT is distinguished from research in that it applies the process of intelligence to create tailored knowledge supportive of a specific decision by a specific individual or group.
