BLOOMSBURG—Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania will present a lecture by Scott Inch, Ph.D, CCE, professor of mathematics and digital sciences, titled “OSINT and Doxing and Dorks, Oh My!” on Wednesday, March 20, at 6:30 p.m. in Hartline Science Center, Kuster Auditorium, room 108 as part of the Dean’s Lecture series. The event is free and open to the public.

Professor Inch will discuss Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) techniques, which are used by the government, hackers, and internet trolls to find publicly available information, typically on the internet. He will also address doxing, the search for and publishing of private or identifying information about (a particular individual) on the internet, typically with malicious intent, when OSINT is used to find personal information and release it online.

An educator, digital forensics practitioner and subject matter expert, Inch has taught hundreds of students, law enforcement personnel, federal agents, corporate employees, and private detectives to perform digital forensics analysis.

Inch will provide a general introduction to the type of information that can be found online and the methods for finding it so that attendees may learn how to secure their personal data more effectively.
