Anacapa Science Fraud and Security Intelligence Analysis

Anacapa Science is a world-renowned system of analytical techniques designed to enable Investigators and Analysts to better understand complex sets of data and provide quality information to decision makers.  Their techniques have been introduced to hundreds of organisations and continue to add value in today’s complex world.

Anacapa Science is the standard by which all intelligence, law enforcement and top commercial fraud departments combat fraud and security issues. It teaches intelligence principles and analytical techniques to enable critical thinking skills to be applied to complex problems.

This specialist programme provides intelligence agency methods adapted to enable candidates to develop and apply techniques of criminal intelligence analysis and to present the results of the analysis to others, including acting in the capacity of a witness in court.

  • Duration: 8 sessions (28 hours)
  • Delivery Mode:
    • On campus (Face-to-face training)
  • Fees:

    S$4360.00* (Incl. of 9% GST)

All investigators who need the ability to analyse complex information and draw investigative conclusions from that information. These include intelligence analysts from commercial or law enforcement fields including fraud investigators dealing with complex cases of internal or external fraud. It is also suitable for any personnel involved at any level in the analysis and prediction of future events from collected intelligence.

This 8-module, competency-based qualification is designed to equip participants with the essentials of intelligence analysis, enabling them to conduct meaningful real life analysis within their organisations.  The course will be delivered by subject experts who will explain the techniques, take questions, and guide and mentor the participants with the accessible tasks for each module.

Delivery will be online over a 4-week period.  Each week 2 modules will be delivered.

This is a pass-fail qualification and participants are required to attain an acceptable level of competence within each module.  To achieve competence, participants will be given tasks around each module.  These will include the analysis of complex data sets to produce meaningful analytical products. Every assessment must be signed off by the assessor prior to commencement of the following module, therefore participants need to focus on their tasks and submit them promptly for assessment and sign off.

Participants will only progress to the next module if they successfully complete the previous module.

The programme is accredited by SFJ Awards, an awarding body regulated by The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (England) and meets the relevant UK national standards for training quality and integrity. Participants who meet the assessment requirements will be awarded the “SFJ Level 2 Qualification - Anacapa Fraud and Security Intelligence Analysis”.
