  • Insight into how insurance investigations are conducted today and how they will be conducted in the future.
  • A look at internet mining and finding well-hidden social profiles, photos, and comments and improving online search results, as well as surveillance, background checks, and the claim investigation process.
  • Insight into reducing claims costs while improving investigative results.
  • A review of social media court cases and the legal ramifications of spoliation, "friending," and the ethical use of social media.
