Internet Investigative Skills (for CDD)

Learn how to search for online information, identify credible sources, analyse, keep effective records and apply appropriate security techniques to avoid compromise.

Who should attend

This CPD certified course is ideal for Compliance Officers, Money Laundering Reporting Officers or those tasked with managing organisational risk.

Why you should attend

Google is estimated to have indexed 60 trillion web pages, but that only represents about 5% of the amount of information that is on the Internet. If you rely solely on Google to search you will be missing things.

Search engine results are configured by complex algorithms. They are automated, it might seem to make your life easier but without a knowledge of what is going on in the background you can be misled into thinking the information you are looking for doesn’t exist. The way you search is extremely important.
