Associate Professor Moyara Ruehsen recently conducted training for Pakistani government officials and law enforcement in Islamabad, Pakistan.
The training focused on open source tools for financial crime investigations and suspect identification, and in particular the treasure trove of intelligence available from social media websites. This is the fifth training of this kind that professor Ruehsen, who oversees the Institute's Financial Crime Management program, conducts in collaboration with the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC). The previous training sessions were held in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Singapore, Indonesia, and finally this summer in Pakistan.
