Important Information!

SOS Malta is pleased to be hosting a series of workshops on Open Source Intelligence. The training will take place on 5th, 6th and 8th June, 2023 from 5:30-8:30pm and will be given by Jan Gunnar Furuly, Norwegian investigative journalist and OSINT researcher.

Journalists will learn techniques to analyse videos and images from anywhere on the globe, and to gauge the originality of the content: who made it, where was it recorded or photographed, when and why?

Over three evenings, they will explore a lot of online tools that will help them gain mastery as OSINT/GEOVERIFICATION researchers at their media house. More specifically, they will learn:

  • how to verify which street address a video or an image was shot from.
  • Using anything from weather data, information on fires worldwide and shadow calculations, they will also learn to gauge when the material was shot.
  • How to know if content has been published before in another context.
  • How to use facial recognition engines and reverse image searches to find out the identity of people from videos or photos.

This event is organised by SOS Malta as part of the bilateral initiatives under the Active Citizens Fund NGO Malta programme.
