My Experience with Kase Scenarios: Immersive OSINT Training

I first heard about Kase Scenarios last year on social media and it looked really cool. I purchased all of them during their recent Black Friday bundle sale (one is free) and completed each one. They definitely did not disappoint. These are realistic, immersive OSINT investigations where you learn by doing.

Betrayal is free. Check out the intro video:

They have videos for the other scenarios on their YouTube Channel.

The scenarios are like CTF-type simulations of real-life investigations with great storylines and graphics. There is no time limit and no points, so you don’t have to worry about getting answers wrong or requesting hints. You can take as much time as you need to solve each task. If you do you get stuck, they have approved walkthroughs for most of the scenarios where the answers aren’t immediately visible. At the time of this blog post, there wasn’t an approved walkthrough for The Vanishing of Rosie Parker. I decided to create one. You can also ask for help on their Discord Server. In addition, they have badges (for the paid scenarios) and a Certificate of Completion for the free one.

Throughout the scenarios, you’re given clues and evidence such as documents, videos and images. Using your OSINT skills, you answer questions and upload reports for evaluation. If you don’t know how to use OSINT for a particular task, Google is your best friend here. Luckily, there is no shortage of OSINT blog posts, videos and tools that can be found to help complete the tasks.

I love the format of these scenarios and I learned a lot while completing them. My skills have definitely improved. I’m looking forward to more in the future!

I highly recommend Kase Scenarios to anyone looking to learn and improve their OSINT skills.
