Advanced Open Source Practitioner

This intensive one-week course will take delegates beyond the mainstream environment of surfing websites and following social media and into the much more in-depth environment of truly anonymous research, power searching and results analysis. Because of the techniques demonstrated this course is only open to delegates from government or law enforcement organisations.
