Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) – Foundation

Counter Fraud

This two day course is very interactive – it is based on practical and operationally usable methodologies which students will be able to apply immediately. The afternoon session of day 2 is a practical session which takes the students through conducting a ‘real world’ deployment in small groups. This will involve planning an OSINT gathering operation, gathering intelligence about a number of subjects, and then putting together the findings into a professional standard report. The course attempts to be ‘system agnostic’ so is not tied to any particular tools, software or services. Whilst the course requires a basic level of computer skill, it requires no pre-existing skillset and will be understood by anyone familiar with computers and the internet. This course can include a day of Digital Document Forensics (in between day one and two). The practical exercise will be adapted to test both OSINT and Digital Document Forensics skills.

Counter Fraud Strategy and Investigation

Counter Fraud Strategy

Many organisations have a Counter Fraud Strategy in place that is designed around known risk and detected fraud. This two day course aims to look at how we can measure our undetected fraud, the fraud we don’t know about, and then redesign our strategy to counter the true cost of fraud being perpetrated. Once we know the true level of fraud and its related cost, we can treat it like any other business cost and find ways to reduce it. Peter has a wealth of knowledge in developing counter fraud strategy gained from developing and implementing counter fraud strategy in two of the largest Government Departments in the UK. He has delivered this course and provided consultancy to clients both at home and abroad. For further details or to discuss a course booking please contact Peter at peter@pdacounterfraud.co.uk
