Conducting an Ethical Online Investigation: 120 minutes, 2 CEUs

As investigators, we are governed by foreign and domestic ethics standards and laws. Yet, everyday an investigator, attorney, or accountant appears in the news for crossing the line using the Internet to research, contact, or connect with their target. They find themselves using technology workarounds, finding holes in the system, or outright hacking to gain information.

This introductory hands-on course offers a comprehensive overview of the legal parameters for conducting online investigations. We will discuss current laws, acceptable practices, and pitfalls that can occur in investigations. Upon completion, field investigators will be able to

  • Identify drawbacks to taking shortcuts in online investigations
  • Understand the laws and compliance requirements to stay inline online
  • Garner the resources for staying abreast of current issues and legal requirements.

All participants will receive handouts on concepts and investigative techniques.
