Utilising Technology in Open Source Intelligence, Investigation and E-disclosure

Over and above statutory and commercial data sources, the internet provides a wealth of intelligence opportunities not limited to thorough analysis of social media and forums but also including a detailed drill down into website infrastructure and web traffic. Often this information is unavailable elsewhere and provides valuable colour and detail to the investigator. Despite its value, such information is gathered from entirely open sources so can be used freely in proceedings as necessary.
