How to analyse information, create intelligence and use this in investigations.
Getting access to the right information quickly and cheaply has never been more important for commercial success.
Modern business should know everything it can about the people and organisations it deals with, the markets it operates in and any risks it faces. But it is not enough to have the information; it needs to be sifted and analysed to ensure that its value is maximised and vital conclusions can be drawn.
This course will equip you with the skills and resources to use information in a far more effective way to obtain the intelligence that you need. It will help show you some new ways to work smarter, and provide some useful tips for critical analysis.
Fraudsters and criminals are getting much more sophisticated in avoiding detection, but they can be caught by smart investigators. The range of knowledge, tools and techniques gained on this workshop will add considerable value to an investigator’s skills. The course is structured to take the delegate through the acquisition of raw information, turning it into actionable intelligence, then producing intelligence packages to justify the decision making process for further intelligence gathering, or to provide a strong audit trail.
- Overview of the intelligence cycle and the analytical process.
- Learn how to think creatively and collect and analyse raw information into intelligence.
- Gain awareness of networks, groups, events and critical path analysis.
- Engage with financial analysis, strategies and techniques.
- Participate in a major simulated exercise using the skills that have been taught.
