MidaSearch: a brief history
I am employed as a Technical Lead Intelligence Analyst and one of my objectives is to ensure that all Intel Analysts and other staff have access to relevant tools and websites whilst keeping expenditure down as much as possible. One way I achieved this was by creating an internal Intel Hub which I began putting together in 2012, at the cost of many migraines(!!), and has since become MidaSearch.org.
In 2017 I decided it was about time I gave back something to the OSINT community, as without their hard work and dedication
MidaSearch would not exist, so I made MidaSearch available to the whole World Wide Web.
I gave MidaSearch the tag line ‘Guardian of OSINT knowledge’ to indicate it is a place where OSINT knowledge from all around the world is stored and free to use. However MidaSearch is only one Guardian of OSINT knowledge, there are many other ‘Guardians’ with the same ethos who all have something different to offer.
Below is a list of just some of the many sites and experts (in a random order) that I always find very helpful in my ongoing OSINT journey. For more check out twitter.com/midasearch
