With over 65% of all U.S. adults actively using social media accounts, it's no surprise that law enforcement is leveraging popular social media platforms to collect valuable intelligence, conduct efficient investigations, and eliminate local as well as national security threats.

Some individuals have gone down in history for confessing to their crimes on their social media profiles... while others have given away incriminating clues via Tweets, Facebook posts, Instagram images, and more.

As the world continues to become more digitized and the Internet grows as a hub of activity, both legal and illegal, it's more important now than ever to be able to effectively utilize cyber intelligence and investigations to properly address our nation's threats and vulnerabilities.

But for many loss prevention professionals, law enforcement officers, private investigators, and other investigative professionals, social media isn't the goldmine of intelligence they had hoped it would be.

For Investigation Professionals like You, the Demand for Cyber and Social Media Investigation Expertise Has Never Been Higher...

... But the lack of proper training, skills, and knowledge can keep you stuck in a stagnant position permanently.

Without the right training in social media platforms, mobile applications, chat tools, networking sites, and more, conducting quick and effective online investigations is nearly impossible!

If you currently feel...

  • Exhausted by time-consuming investigations... and you don't think there could possibly be enough hours in the day to perform thorough social media research on criminals...
  • Tired of working harder and longer to conduct traditional investigations... instead of learning how to leverage the internet and social media to conduct fast and effective investigations online...
  • Overwhelmed, frustrated, and confused with social media sites... and you have no idea how to navigate social media platforms to glean the valuable intelligence and insights you need...
  • Frustrated with your lack of success in your investigative career... and are ready to establish credibility as an expert authority and finally take your career to the next level...
