WEBINT 101

BACKGROUND

The virtual world of social media has become as real and present in our lives as the real world. Personal profiles are exposed in the digital world, pictures, posts, locations, wishes, needs and aspirations are shared with masses of known and unknown people.

The constant flow of data and connectivity comes along with a pool of side effects, some wanted – and some unwanted.  It certainly instigated a revolution in the worlds of law enforcement, corporate security and investigative media: professionals from these fields now have the ability to harvest data and conduct research, investigations and intelligence collection with a fraction of the resources once required to conduct these same activities. 

OBJECTIVE

The use of social media for these purposes is continuously growing and changing at incredible speeds. At the same time, the Darknet and the dark sides of social media are emerging as powerful platforms providing access to contraband and potentially dangerous information about cyber hacking, bombmaking or the like.

An in-depth understanding of these digital arenas alongside tools and knowhow necessary to navigate them is a sine-qua-non for law enforcement, media and legal professionals.
As a global leader in data-driven intelligence solutions, MAISHA Group offers a select group of professionals the opportunity to participate in an exclusive seminar delivered by top-level experts in the field of innovative web intelligence, analysis and actionable insights. Our experts will teach you how to efficiently navigate the chaotic seas of data, eliminate cyber threats, and generate highly valuable targeted insights for ongoing investigations.
