The handbook compiles guidance from financial crime and AML experts plus practical advice on navigating the dark web for financial fraud investigations

Whether you work for a bank, insurance company, government organization or criminal justice agency, having the right financial fraud investigation tools can make or break your research. The internet is your portal for information collection and data analysis, where you dig into financial reports, look deeper into organizations’ business practices and maybe even scan the dark web for suspicious activities related to the company or individuals you are probing. But you’re also looking for a needle in a stack of needles. Cutting through the clutter to find the right intel can be daunting; and sometimes, the needles poke back.

Your go-to guide for financial fraud investigation tools

At Authentic8, we understand the delicate — and often risky — nature of online fraud investigations. To help you find the right information, analyze the facts and locate the most credible news related to your research, we’ve compiled the list of practical and handy resources. The new handbook, Financial Fraud Investigation: Tips & Techniques, aims to help you conduct financial fraud investigations efficiently and without putting you or your organization at risk.

The handbook compiles guidance from our financial crime and AML experts to give you a curated, quick-reference catalogue of databases, tools and intel sites.
