Delegates leave feeling confident in implementing the strategies learnt and practicing the appropriate security measures within various departments after the course.

It is crucial to get to the critical facts as quickly as possible when dealing with an investigation. In most cases, these events occur unexpectedly, prompting the justice process that will happen accordingly. To obtain evidence that would be admissible, forensic investigators must aim for a successful finding. As a general rule of thumb, if a criminal prosecution is to be conducted, the case must be proven “beyond a reasonable doubt”. Therefore, the accuracy of the analysis is imperative as it is often used in court hearings, especially in criminal investigations. Consequently, it is essential to have fully equipped personnel that can facilitate the support needed at every stage of the process, from identifying, extracting, and analysing relevant data.
