Due Diligence and Public Records Webinar: 90 minutes, 2 CEUs.

This rich and informative webinar will cover the steps needed to conduct true due diligence, whether public or private, foreign or domestic. This class focuses on completing a due diligence report utilizing a wealth of information: public records, legal filings, newspapers, magazines, trade journals, blogs, and open source material. We will examine professional fee-based tools and available free resources to understand their functionality and limitations to access all information that’s out there.

  • Learn the critical items essential to your report and how to highlight key facts in your report
  • Discover the mandatory databases for conducting business background investigations and due diligence
  • Identify key resources available to investigators that go unused, because they are not marketed to our industry
  • Know where the overlap of one aggregated service (news, social media monitoring, and geo-fencing) is at and how to shop and pay accordingly
