Intelligence Development

When there is a lack of evidence to prove wrongdoing, one may need to rely on developing rumors or gathering intelligence to move forward. This requires knowledge of research methods, planning for data collection, effective evaluation of information, and ethical conduct. Our courses can equip operatives with the necessary skills to navigate this complex environment and achieve desired outcomes.

Intelligence Courses for your organisation

In the highly complex criminal environment, fraudsters and organized crime groups continuously strive to outsmart law enforcement and commercial investigators. While technological solutions can aid in combating wrongdoings, organizations must be cautious not to fall into the trap of relying solely on technology to solve all their problems, as this is not the case. Instead, organizations require agile human critical thinkers who are well-trained and motivated to identify the right questions, interpret available data, and hypothesize around uncertain data sets. These individuals must also be capable of assessing risks and proposing mitigation strategies to decision-makers. For over 25 years, our training courses have been equipping individuals worldwide with these essential skills.
