Digital Forensics Intelligence
Criminal intelligence analysis is an essential component of effective policing, at both the operational and strategic levels. The analysts study data related to criminals, crime suspects, incidents, issues, and trends. By collecting and assessing this data, they can identify relationships or connections between different crimes in different places and provide insights that can drive or support law enforcement investigations, operations, and strategy, as well as influencing government policy and decisions.
BUSINESS FOCUS - EDUCATION
INsig2 educates professionals working in the law enforcement sector, legal, and private sector, and by working closely with the client, INsig2 can adjust the course’s content and duration, deliver the training on several locations, and organize complete infrastructure (equipment, expert trainers, course materials) to meet the client’s specific requirements. Upon successful completion of the training and exam, the clients will receive an official certificate with CPE points for passing the course.
