The course aims to give a rounded field information training package that encompasses all phases from collection, analysis and management of information for building enhanced situational awareness; aiding both security and operational effectiveness in the field. The broad ICAM course curriculum has proved equally applicable and valuable to a broad spectrum of field personnel from NGO, Humanitarian community, EU, UN, Media, Government, Investigation and specialist information backgrounds.

 

Indeed, the mix of participant type and experience has proven highly valuable to the course experience in previous years generating a rich opportunity to network and share approaches and understanding.

 

The ICAM course will be held close to Arlanda airport in Stockholm, Sweden at a private training area equipped with accommodation and meals to facilitate a focused course week where mentors will be available throughout the days and evenings.

• Open Source and Social Media information search and cultivation
