Educational Workshop: OSINT for Partner Due Diligence

1:00pm3:00pm
Blue Dot Stage, 104A, Level 1
In an era of global operations and multi-national partnerships, effective due diligence is critical to avoid financial and reputational losses.

This workshop will teach analysts and front-line managers how to employ Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) methodologies to spot indicators of fraud or others risks about your retail partners that may negatively impact your consumers and your organization. The workshop will be a combination of lecture and hands-on practical exercises. Objectives: Learn how to use corporate databases, social media platforms, and other online resources to verify sellers and identify risks. Introduce techniques for sourcing hard-to-find information on international organizations and individuals. Gain experience navigating public records, legal filings, and other relevant databases across multiple jurisdictions.
