Core forensic tasks
Investigative professionals in the private and public sectors share the same core forensic tasks. They have to capture, analyse, test and respond systematically and rapidly to fine-grain detail – disclosed in documents and in verbal exchanges.
Everyone must be accountable. Everything is increasingly subject to scrutiny. The focus is on feelings as well as facts: ethics, empathy and effectiveness. Decisions must be transparent and defensible against complaint and litigation: based on demonstrable evidence.
All this applies whether you are a practitioner, a manager or responsible for quality control – working in investigation, crime prevention, audit, risk assessment and risk management (e.g. screening applications, claims and personnel), or managing and conducting a case through the court, tribunal or complaint process.
