Internet for Investigations - A Course for Managers

Course Details

This course is designed for supervisors and managers enabling them to understand what information is available from everyday communications from the Internet, the services that are enabled by the Internet and modern day communications devices and network, and how this information can assist in an Investigation.

The delegate will understand the legislative framework, operating principles and on-line security that will mean that they will be better informed to make tactical decisions within this medium.

The course builds to a perspective of an Authorising Officer (RIPA), so that the manager is fully cognisant of the techniques and capabilities that are being requested within the parameters of a Directed Surveillance Authority.

You will;

• Be able to understand computer and Internet architecture, services, and how social medial data can help to inform any investigation.
• Understand current techniques used in Open Source, from search capabilities, evidence capture, disclosure considerations and compliance with national frameworks.
• Have a better understanding of current capabilities that will inform your tactical decision making during investigations.
• Fully understand the capability of techniques and their impact, thus enabling you to make an informed judgment in the areas of collateral intrusion, necessity and proportionality within the authorisation process (RIPA).
