- 3i-MIND's Vice President of Global Agency Practice, John Gill, to Discuss Benefits of Open Source Intelligence Tools in 21st Century
When so many of today's criminals are mobile and online, what tools can help investigators to uncover hidden threats and leads?

At 11:00 a.m. CET today, Gill will speak at the European Police Congress (http://www.beh.cms.icteam.net/polizei_Internet/nav/22d/3276fcb8-f447-2213-780e-51dbaef956b8.htm) about Internet crime and the use of open source intelligence tools in the 21st Century.
Gill will examine recent criminal investigations in the EU, involving immigrant smuggling and child trafficking, and discuss specific ways that OSINT data-gathering and investigation tools can help Europol and its partner agencies solve these types of cases faster and more efficiently. He will discuss the benefits of OSINT tools in supporting criminal and intelligence investigations.
As the former Chief Security Officer for the Executive Office of the U.S. President, Gill led the development, implementation and management of security policies and programs for the White House. He has 27 years of law enforcement and security experience, including senior-level positions with the U.S. Secret Service where Gill was the Attache of the Paris Field Office.
Gill will be speaking during Session A, "Global Migration Movements - Challenges for the European Security Policy."
