Delegates are encouraged to bring with them a laptop. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer electric power supply on the table although power outlets will be available around the room, so ideally laptops that have a battery life of 2.5 hours.
Detailed breakdown of OSINT Techniques – Neil Smith
• Advanced Searching Techniques – there is more to searching than just tapping in a name into Google and hoping to find it on the first page (with examples & time allowed for delegates to try the techniques demonstrated)
• Accessing Material From Social Media Sites – there is a big difference between being a user of Facebook / Twitter / Instagram and using them as an investigator, this session will demonstrate a few techniques to locate useful information from accounts, even if they have privacy settings in place (with examples & time allowed for delegates to try the techniques demonstrated)
• Databases – there are many useful databases that can be accessed online but sometimes it’s knowing how the information can be interpreted and expanded upon that gives us an advantage (with examples & time allowed for delegates to try the techniques demonstrated)
Neil helped form Qwarie to build on what he was doing previously but in a bigger company to offer OSINT research and training to more clients around the world.
After serving over 10 years as a police officer in a UK police force and then spent time working as a counter-fraud specialist for a government department and as a fraud investigator for insurance companies, Neil Smith has spent most of the last 14 years as a full time investigative researcher for a mixture of clients, from insurance companies to law enforcement agencies and journalists.
During these last 14 years Neil has also taught many hundreds of investigators, mostly from law enforcement but also from local authorities and insurance companies, as well as private investigators and journalists, in the art of using the Internet as an Investigative Tool. These courses have mostly been in the UK but have also been given in a number of different countries around the World.
Neil also regular speaks on the subject of Open Source Intelligence and in Using The Internet As An Investigative Tool at a number of conferences and events both in the UK and around the World, to groups from law enforcement, local authority investigators, commercial & corporate investigators and people from the compliance and insurance industries.
In 2016 Neil helped form Qwarie (www.qwarie.com) to build on what he was doing previously but in a bigger company to offer OSINT research and training to more clients around the world.
As well as having a team of full-time in-house researchers, who undertake online enquiries for our clients, Qwarie now has a number of trainers to deliver OSINT & Cybercrime courses around the world.
