Three one-hour sessions for investigators, legal professionals, and independent researchers.

We discuss the importance of checklists and clear systems for successful background and social media investigations. We discuss different types of cases and their varied approaches.
Part 2: Public Records & Databases We dive deep into the array of public records available online and offline remotely. We discuss the limits and benefits of Google and other freely available search engines. We do a detailed comparison of proprietary database services and how they can best be used.
Part 3: Social Media Frenzy Lastly, we explore the opportunities, pitfalls, and dramatic changes in the exploding world of social media investigations.
