Due Diligence on Your Current or Prospective Principal | Colin Tansley

You might have a good grasp of your principal's threat footprint but how much do you know about them as a current or prospective client?

  • When do you need to call in legal or investigative help for due diligence?
  • What are the worst case scenarios you might uncover?
  • Is all of this information 'OSINT' and to what extent is it 'Open Source' if so?
  • Who has access to which critical databases?
  • How can you map business associates of your principal and how can you keep that information secure?
  • What are the limits to required due diligence?
