Creating pathways to success as an Open-Source Intelligence professional
About Echo Academy
Echo Academy (EA) is the training division of Echo Analytics Group (EAG), an open-source intelligence (OSINT) research and analysis company founded in 2015. Its founder, Harry “Buddy” Jericho, discovered early in his service with the Department of Defense throughout 2007 the significant impact social media had across the world. However, the massive amount of information uploaded to the internet daily was helpful but not always reliable. This availability of information led to the development of research methods and technologies to find and analyze reliable information quickly. The result was the creation of an in-house methodology and an analytic tool resources platform; Discover, Develop, Monitor (D2M™) and the Cyber Intelligence Dashboard (CID). EA now provides perspectives-based digital media analytics training to public and private sector businesses and government entities, aligning it with the EAG company mission; to be the most trusted name in OSINT education, technology, and services. EA has trained over 4,000 professionals across the globe on basic and advanced digital media analysis. The instructional staff continually performs quality control of its training by applying information gathered through course surveys to improve and evolve the curriculum. Because of these ongoing quality control efforts, instructors can modify and customize each course to the unique requirements of its attendees as a matter of corporate policy. Further, practical and capstone exercises are client-determined.
