Investigate Broughty Ferries using Open Source Intelligence, an important cyber security reconnaissance technique. Take part in this interactive cyber security activity with your class. You'll investigate suspicious activity at a ferry company and see if you can uncover a conspiracy to import counterfeit trainers. OSINT is all about using legal and cutting edge methods to discover publicly available information about a subject. You'll use standard OSINT methods to discover all that we can about the inner workings of Broughty Ferries and hopefully be able to confirm or deny their involvement in illegal activity. The workshop is suitable for learners from P7-S4. No previous cyber security knowledge is required. To take part, learners will need to use a modern web browser on a laptop or desktop computer.
