During this second module, students will be introduced to the intelligence cycle and will understand the importance of the OSINT process in structured search. The creation of a research plan and having a clear, concise manner in which to manage the content captured are key foundations to an effective investigation. Students are introduced to techniques of source and identity verification, and a case study is used to teach planning and content management techniques. As investigators, particularly financial investigators, need to increasingly search for information from foreign jurisdictions in languages they do not understand, embedded auto-translation tools make the process manageable, and relevant content easily accessible; these tools, briefly introduced in Module 1, will be explored in greater detail. The 'robot exclusion protocol' is explained, and you will be shown how to use the Internet Archive within the structure of the module’s case study.
