Spy on the Competition: Sounds Good, Right?

July 11, 2019

DarkCyber noted this consumer and small business oriented write up about spying. Navigate to “7 ways to Spy on Your Competitor’s Facebook Ads [2019 Update].” The update promises to add some nifty new, useful methods to the original story.

What are the methods? Here’s a run down of four of them. You will have to navigate to the original story for the other three, or you could just not bother. Spoiler: None of the methods reference commercially available tools and services available from specialist vendors. Who’s a specialist vendor? Attend one of our LE and intel training sessions, and we will share a list of 30 firms with you.

Here are four methods we found interesting:

  1. Use services which report about a firm’s online advertising activities.
  2. Use services which report about a firm’s online advertising activities.
  3. Use services which report about a firm’s online advertising activities.
  4. Use services which report about a firm’s online advertising activities.

There you go. The spying methods.

DarkCyber wants to point out that these methods are different from the persistent tracking bug data some vendors helpfully install on one’s Internet connected device.

Plus, these methods are quite different from the approaches implemented in commercial OSINT and intercept analysis systems.

My next relatively public lecture will be in October in San Antonio. After the session, look me up. I might share a couple of solutions. Better yet write darkcyber333 at yandex dot com and sign up for a for fee intelligence systems webinar.
