Investigative Desktop Research (or “IDR”) is a process of looking for and collecting readily available information in the public domain and analyzing it in the context of early warning signs of fraud, corruption and otherwise unethical business behaviors.
In this course, you will learn to identify, collect and analyze information and data from external and internal sources for your own desktop investigations. IDR is useful when you need to assess the nature of what could be behind identified red flags using a limited amount of resources, time and budget.
Most of the time the information you need is freely available to anyone but you need to know where to look, and interpret what you find in the right way.
During the day, you will:
- Get an understanding of the risks, the costs and the effects of fraud and corruption
- Appreciate the power of techniques which can be used to detect and assess the nature of red flags at an early stage
- Learn to sort, interpret and evaluate findings and indications
- Acquire skills for constructively presenting your findings to management
The session will be highly interactive and will include discussions, real cases, realistic documents and images, as well as group-work. The course will be delivered in English with Oskar Savolainen, an experienced Finnish facilitator and investigator participating.
