Feedback from previous participants
“This course should be a part of mandatory personnel training for all Intelligence and law enforcement agencies."
"The training was very well-structured and well executed, so it was easy to understand and take-in the provided information. The training was really useful, and the most relevant sources were purposefully selected. I believe this information can be easily applied both in professional and personal activities (e. g. in personal data protection). The trainer was also great, a real expert in the field, he answered all our questions with easily understandable examples. I would strongly recommend this training to others."
"A very useful training, I received a lot of concentrated information about information collection and analysis that can help in making decisions in various areas of an organisation. It would be impossible to gather as much information in such a short time on your own”.
"Very good, intensive and useful course. This knowledge can be used in various fields such as marketing, personnel selection, due-diligence of suppliers and sub-contractors. It is also necessary for evaluation of various risks, prevention and investigation."
