Open source intelligence. I’m new to all of this, but you can find out a lot about people with publicly available information. You can find out what’s on a network with enumeration. Ping, traceroute are your friends. If you want to find out when someone is working, stalk them on social media. Or you can use a prepaid phone to call up their place of work and do some social engineering. This is all hypothetical, don’t do anything dumb!
