In the last few years, we developed a platform, whose name is SATAYO (Search All Thing About Your Organization), because its purpose is to gather all the information that is publicly available about a company.
SATAYO can scan the entire Internet, from the common websites located in the Surface Web to the hidden forums and data leak sites present in the Deep and Dark Web. All this data comes from the so-called OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) sources. These are sources that everyone, in most cases even without special skills, is able to examine. SATAYO is able to correlate the retrieved data and classify it in different sections that can be easily accessed from the platform by the clients. Thus, after a SATAYO scan, we have evidence of the company’s infrastructure and its exposed services. We have the complete list of IP addresses used by the organization, open ports on their devices, and information about their http methods, mail server, vulnerabilities on their machines, and the list goes on. We may also collect sensitive data about people working in the company, such as their e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and hacked accounts, most of the time with their passwords. Of course we don't use this data for our own benefit, instead we use it to analyze the severity of the situation, suggesting how to enforce the organization’s network perimeter.

During the talk we will explore what SATAYO does and what OSINT is, explaining how malicious actors and criminals can use anything available on the Internet to prepare an attack. Cyber security threats are increasing every day, and we are doing our best to prevent the worst from happening.
