What is the Organizational OSINT Maturity Assessment

The KeyNorth Group’s Organizational OSINT Maturity Assessment is a tool that will allow you to evaluate how your organization or department has incorporated practices, policies, procedures, and technology to successfully conduct Open-Source Intelligence (OSINT) operations.

The tool is intended to provide you with a snapshot of your current organizational maturity regarding OSINT operations. The questions cover five topics: best practices and capabilities, organizational structure, policy and law, technology, and OSINT training.
Who the Tool is Best Suited For

This tool best suits law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies, public safety organizations and corporate security groups that use OSINT to achieve their objectives. Any person can complete this questionnaire within the agency or organization engaged in a role that utilizes OSINT. 

The results of this assessment are intended to provide feedback on the OSINT function by identifying operational strengths and opportunities for improvement. The assessment can be applied to the organization itself or a specific department(s). Please be sure to determine your focus prior to starting the survey.
How to Complete the Assessment
  • You may complete this assessment as many times as needed. 
  • It will take you approximately 30 minutes to complete the questions and access the feedback. 
  • At the end of the survey, you will access your general results, which you can print into hard copy or to a PDF document and keep for your own use.
  • For each question, you will be asked to select “agree” or “disagree.” There may be some instances where the question does not apply to your specific situation. If this is the case, please select “not applicable.” 
  • For questions where a topic does not apply but you feel it should be addressed (ex. In the case of a deficiency or deficit), please select disagree, rather than “not applicable.” Please note that these answers are given the same grade as an “Agree” answer, so your final score will be more accurate. 
Data Privacy and Offline Version

Your answers will remain anonymous unless you choose to identify yourself through the contact page at the end of the questionnaire. We do collect anonymized aggregated data for the purposes of analyzing trends in OSINT.

If you would like an offline version of the assessment, please contact us, and we will send you an electronic file containing the questions, which you can complete off of the Internet.
