Finding personal information online

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Get new tips and tricks to find the person, you are looking for! We start off with clever googling for personal information online, from there go to search patterns that help you go from nickname to full name and vice versa. Leading to tools that use e-mail-addresses, nicknames or other personal information as a starting point. You will never have a guarantee that your search will be successful, but if you use these tools, you can be pretty sure that you did your best. Moreover, be sure to start with the most effective tools. Pictures come in very handy here. Marcus Lindemann is training German police and fraud detectives on this and will show examples on how he identified fraudsters, that meant to hide themselves online. Journalistic examples include identifying people who do not have their full name in the media yet (crime cases etc.).
