Lisette Abercrombie

Lisette "Technisette" Abercrombie is an instructor and course creator and one of the co-founders of The OSINT Curious Project, a non-profit organization.

Lisette has a diverse background where she studied to be a primary school teacher but after graduating started working full-time at a Dutch social media website. As a community manager, her role was to make sure that users and employees of the website would obey the user agreement, privacy statement, and Dutch law. She was a member of the security team where she learned to basics of OSINT and a single-point-of-contact for government and law enforcement.

It quickly became clear that due to the rise of Facebook, the website was losing members and Lisette looked for a new job. She earned a position within the Dutch National Police where, for more than 10-years, she has been supporting and advising criminal investigations as an Internet and OSINT specialist.

Because OSINT is not only her job but also her hobby, she likes to share her new found techniques and tricks with the OSINT community via her Twitter-account and website
