Online & Social Media Investigations: Go Beyond the Big Sites
Social media sites and online communication platforms define our everyday lives. Social networking is how we connect, express ideas, make purchases, find jobs, and share our lives with the world. All of this digital interaction is a goldmine waiting for investigators who need to reach beyond the typical social media investigative checklist of Facebook and Twitter. Learn advanced open source and social media intelligence collection techniques for a variety of popular mobile apps and online platforms used by billions. Apply hidden methods for sites and services that many investigators had never even considered. Explore case studies and real-life examples of how these unique tools and specialized techniques are actively used for security monitoring, fugitive recoveries, asset searching, background checks, photo analysis, and fraud and criminal investigations.
John Hoda, All Things Investigative, LLC
It's All in Your Head
The investigator’s mindset towards business is the most important tool in building a successful business. We will ask "Red Light” questions about starting or staying in business. We move into reluctance to market and how to focus on one target audience with at a minimum of one hour a week of marketing. Being a great investigator doesn’t guarantee success and how that self-identification actually gets in the way of business building and I will give my own testimonial about that exact issue.

Preparing for the active shooter in the workplace
This presentation focuses on workplace violence, oriented toward active shooter dynamics. Relative to the new-world dynamics we are in, there has been a reduction in active shooter incidents due to the pandemic, but due to the most unique conditions the planet has seen in terms of quarantine-related tensions and rising violence, the perfect storm for workplace violence may be percolating.
