"INTERNET INTELLIGENCE" - A three-day course at Cambridge University on How to Use the Internet as an Effective Investigative Research Tool - 27th - 30th March 2011

In today’s fast moving world getting access to information quickly and cheaply has never been more important, for as the saying goes, “who knows wins”. In this context the Internet provides an unrivalled facility to collect information and carry out research, yet some of its most useful specialised and publicly available search tools are largely unknown. There is also a considerable lack of knowledge as to how to use the Internet to maximum effect.

ICC Commercial Crime Services has developed a three-day course to be held at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge University which will provide delegates with:

  • An overview of the Internet and how it works.
  • The ability to use the Internet in a more effective way as an open source/competitive intelligence tool.
  • Advanced techniques to mine data using different search tools and uncover hidden information.
  • Strategies for filtering, analysing and organising research data.
  • An awareness of security and privacy issues including techniques to both hide and increase visibilities of sites.

The course is highly practical and interactive and is lead by David Toddington, who is a leading expert with a wealth of experience in his field. It will be of interest to a range of different individuals including:

  • Corporate security professionals in banks, insurers and multinationals
  • Fraud investigators, lawyersaccountants and analysts
  • Competitive intelligence researchers
  • Government and private sector investigators
  • Law enforcement officers
  • Knowledge workers and researchers

Each delegate will receive a 250-page comprehensive manual, as well as various shareware software applications, and a certificate of attendance.

If you, would like to attend, please visit website  for more information. You can also   complete the online registration form by going to  or if you prefer e-mail There are only 25 places on this course and, as demand is expected to be high, we would advise you to book as soon as possible.
