In today’s information-based economy, online research and analysis skills are essential requirements at all levels of an organization, in both the public and private sectors, and acquiring useful and relevant Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) requires much more than just an ability to surf the Web.

Aimed at managers, frontline investigators, researchers, and analysts alike, this advanced training program will provide detailed instruction on effectively using the Internet as an Open Source Intelligence, research, and investigation tool.

Demonstrating advanced search and analysis techniques for mining Web-based and social media information, this comprehensive training program will also examine a number of case studies that will focus on highlighting and correcting potential pitfalls that can compromise investigative or intelligence gathering efforts. As an additional training component, essential privacy tools for ensuring data, communication, and online security will be demonstrated, as will techniques being used by  the criminal element to conceal their identity, location, and illegal behaviour.

Learn how to generate relevant, timely, and actionable intelligence, assess and manage risk, maximize opportunities, assure compliance, and manage reputation. Regularly delivered in Canada, Europe, Asia, and Australia, this highly-acclaimed, advanced OSINT training program will teach delegates how to conduct more effective online investigations, by finding better online information, in less time, at less cost, with less risk™.
