HackNotice vs. the Top 3 OSINT Projects

Stacking actionable threat intelligence with open-source intelligence (OSINT)

Cybercrime has evolved into a billion-dollar industry. As the threats increasingly grow, every individual that logs onto the internet has become an easy target with only a few tools to protect their digital data.

See how HackNotice and three of the most widely used Open-Source Intelligence methods can help you defend against cybercrime.


HaveIbeenPwned lets users check if their email has been part of a data breach.


HackNotice performs multiple security tasks in addition to data searches.


  • Collects data leaks so users can check if their info is leaked.

  • Monitors the dark web 24/7.

  • Provides expert analysis.

  • Provides remediation steps.

  • Matches data breaches with exposed information.

  • Alerts victims of data leaks.

Confirming if digital data is in the hands of hackers is just the first step. There are multiple sources that collect data breaches, only HackNotice turns the data into actionable threat intelligence with custom remediation steps for every type of breach.


Social media platforms allow topics to be grouped by hashtags, allowing users to search for data breach news and updates.


HackNotice gathers intelligence that users can act on and build skills that help them both personally and professionally. 


  • Users can search or follow a hashtag to look for data breach updates.

  • Security experts search billions of digital identity data points to find risk.

  • Excludes non-actionable or redundant information. (like chatter)

  • Contextualizes risk events to provide real-time security status reports.

  • Indexes credential and identity leaks security researchers can use.

  • Categorizes data breach types and specific risks users face.

Searching through social media platforms is a useful way to know what risk events have occurred but there is no context with the data. HackNotice spells out the risk and how affects every user differently according to their own digital data.

HackNotice enables users to analyze and filter their risk and understand how risk events impact them directly.


  • Collects information regarding users that became victims of phishing attacks.

  • Provides lists of malicious URLs, SSL connections, and botnet C&C servers used for malware distribution.

  • Matches dark web and user-habit monitoring for quick, actionable analysis.

  • Evaluates risk levels by breach type and connection to organizations and members.

  • Provides context on all data so security teams can take action.

  • Provides remediation steps generated from specific data breach risks. 

  • Notifies users immediately as their data is posted on the dark web.

Access to data is helpful, but not all data is the same and each can bring a different level of risk for users. HackNotice provides users context on what kind of data has been stolen from them and the risks they pose so security departments can take action.

As data breaches continue, multiple Open-Source Intelligence options have provided ways for users to see if their digital data was compromised. But what next? Most victims to cybercrime don’t realize risk of cyberattacks until it’s too late. When it comes to anything, you get what you pay for – this is especially true in cybersecurity.

There are multiple ways to collect information you can utilize in defense against cyberattacks. Each comes with different levels of information so use any that you find useful to protect your digital data. In the fight against cybercrime, there is no downside to using multiple sources. Along with your preferred Open-Source Intelligence method, use HackNotice to make sense of everything and be ready to fight back against hackers and cybercriminals.

“HackNotice Teams gives clients the opportunity to be proactive by providing feedback about strengths and weaknesses within their cybersecurity programs, including which areas require more attention and the types of changes to work culture that can enable a more secure environment.”
