Open Source Intelligence for Financial Investigators – Module 4

Includes lifetime access

Course Overview

This final module will introduce the student to the concept of “amber flags,” explaining how to capture early warning signals of a potential
risk, before that risk explodes and becomes a full “red flag.” A key source of
early warning tends to be the world’s investigative journalists. We will introduce
students to the key sites that these journalists use and also show how to set
up a real-time monitoring system, as well as to how to locate and verify
expert sources. In this module, students will also be taught various advanced skills
around investigation and security, including: email tracing, the use and management of RSS
feeds, browser security, web server log files, proxy servers, and anonymous web
searching. Further, we will set out a framework and checklist for
financial investigators to use; provide lists of specialized databases and
relevant online resources; introduce the more useful specialist groups that
exist on LinkedIn; and finally, provide a guide to the more useful foreign language
sites that investigators tend to need.
