Although private investigators are historically known for utilizing physical surveillance techniques to gain information, the Internet has fundamentally changed the way private investigation agencies conduct research.

OSINT or Open Sources for Intelligence is a vast, complex and ever changing network, which involves traditional media, web-based communities and social networks (ie. Facebook, Twitter etc), public data, professional and academic digital sources, geospatial methods and the deep web.

These methods are becoming invaluable to investigators as intelligence analysts are able to uncover information using methods that were once thought impossible.

However, these methods can also be used by private individuals with malicious intent, leading to identity theft, stalking or worse.
