Chatterbox – OSINT Special

In this special edition of Chatterbox, we cover customer due diligence, including the very latest regulatory guidance on using open source Internet searches (OSINT) to identify and verify risks, and we introduce more about the exciting new GCAL online training solution that has been created to upskill risk and compliance professionals in how to perform OSINT investigation requirements.

Great Chatwell Academy’s fundamental goal is to provide both individuals and businesses with high quality financial crime compliance training that ‘Engages, Informs and Inspires’.

Above all, it is our responsibility to provide you with the knowledge and skills development that supports you to become even more confident and effective in your financial crime compliance role.

Instructor-Led Financial Crime Training

Our training professionals provide outstanding instructor-led tuition and are recognised experts in risk and compliance. Every training session, whether for example Anti-Money Laundering (AML), OSINT (Open-Source Intelligence Investigation), or Anti-Bribery and Corruption (ABC) is tailored to suit your individual learning needs, providing you with the skills and knowledge you need to be even more effective in the fight against crime and the financing of terrorism.

We don’t rely on information-packed slide presentations but use interactive technologies to enhance your learning experience and enjoyment including the latest insights, interactive quizzes and assessments to provide you with support and feedback on your progress.

Our aim is simple: to engage, inform and inspire you to become even more confident and competent.

OSINT (Open-Source Intelligence Investigation Training)

OSINT is one of our newest courses and we believe that this course will become essential learning for all risk and compliance professionals who use the Internet.

If you are looking to improve your use of the Internet to perform customer due diligence checks, or to perform enhanced investigations, and you need to search for information, then this course is for you.

Learn about the Internet and how to identify information efficiently and safely, unlocking hidden investigative techniques that really do save time and lead to better results.

Online Financial Crime Compliance Training

It is not always possible or indeed effective to carry out classroom-based training, but we know how important it is for you to benefit from close personal support and instructor-led demonstration of key skills.

We therefore provide online financial crime compliance training sessions that include recorded instructor-led guidance and demonstrations that ensure that if you attend our training you will enjoy the benefits of instructor-led training at a time and location that suits you.

Whether your organisation needs AML Training, Bribery and Corruption Training, OSINT or Managing Sanctions Risks Training, we will provide you with the knowledge, skills and personal coaching that you need to be the very best that you can be.
