If investigators want to get the most out of the web, they need to know where to look.
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) September 13, 2012
Today’s investigations often involve Google searches, social media sites and other popular online sources. Unfortunately these sites provide limited information to an investigator. However, a wealth of information resides in the invisible, or deep, web that traditional search engines don’t find – investigators just need to know where to look.
To learn how to search the deep web to get the information you need, join us for a free webinar on Tuesday September 25th at 2pm EDT. The hour-long webinar will be led by online investigation expert Cynthia Hetherington, MLS, MSM, CFE, who will show attendees how to get the most out of these “hidden” information sources.
“In today’s investigative world, we’re seeing every investigation having some sort of online component,” says Hetherington. “But Google only covers one per cent of what’s available on the internet. Investigative analysts know that and can conduct much more focused searches. They can tap the ‘invisible web’, or deep web sources, including public records and hidden networks. Using these searches, they can uncover information and connections that are otherwise difficult to find.”
During the hour-long webinar Hetherington will dive into:
- Mistakes security professionals and investigators make when investigating in these new media
- What information investigators are missing
- Where investigators are exposing themselves
- How to investigate discreetly online
“If investigators want to get the most out of the web, they need to know where to look,” says Joe Gerard, VP of Sales and Marketing at i-Sight. “As a provider of case management software for investigations, we are committed to helping investigators resolve their cases. We are really looking forward to this webinar with Cynthia and learning more about the various tools investigators can use to get the information they need and make their jobs easier.”
