Digital Strategies for SIOs

Almost every crime has a digital or cyber element to it. But all too often investigators and managers do not feel equipped to make a digital strategy or even just think that digital is  just not for them. This interactive one-day course will convince even the most reluctant senior investigator just how straightforward it is to incorporate a digital strategy into their investigation. By demonstrating the similarities to ‘traditional’ investigations, force and regional SIOs and deputies will be confident to make good decisions in utilising digital methods within cyber enabled and cyber dependent investigations. Applying recognised principles around the Golden Hour, fast-time actions and proportionate decision-making, investigators will gain confidence in setting strategy, tasking activity, managing risk and challenging others.

Course Delivery - Classroom - 1 Day

We will deliver this course at your site for up to 30 delegates using a range of practical case studies with plenty of time for discussion. In advance of the course delivery we will ask for any materials, forms, guidance and information about your structure. We will use this to deliver a course that is precisely tailored for your needs and not just ‘off the shelf’. At the end of the day your senior investigators will not only have more confidence in managing a digital media strategy to drive their enquiries forward, they will also know where to go for help and how to access and make best use of their organisation’s resources.
