UK Finance: Open source intelligence and investigation - two-day workshop


It is often assumed that being academically intelligent is enough to be an effective intelligence analyst. In reality, intelligence analysis is a skill which should be taught, trained and refined like any other. The internet and social media are revolutionising the way we think about gathering intelligence and seeking evidence. To help with this, we will be holding our previously sold out Open Source Intelligence and Investigation workshop in just over a week.

The Open Source Intelligence and Investigation workshop gives researchers and analysts the tools to make best use of bespoke search techniques and freely available applications, whilst limiting their digital footprint ensuring they remain legal when dealing with vast amounts of open source information.

This workshop is the UK's first OFQUAL recognised qualification within this discipline and sets a nationally recognised standard for internet research and investigation.
