Knowing a competitor’s strategies, in advance, can be the difference between success and failure, and yet members of business leadership teams, marketers, and sales teams are stretched too thin just “doing their job” to spend much time really analyzing the competition. During this session we’ll show you how can make the most of open source intelligence (OSINT) assets.

Key Takeaways:
20+ free Web tools for Competitive Intelligence
– Best practices for searching the deep web
– Multiple examples of how these tools have been used in competitive intelligence projects
– Guidance as to how you should rank and prioritize open source intelligence sources
All attendees will also receive a free copy of Sean and Scott’s book on gathering Internet based OSINT entitled: Go Beyond Google: Gathering Internet Intelligence – listed as must read for 2009-2010 by the Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professionals association.
