House of Training (formerly IFBL) has secured the collaboration of Grahame White, a highly experienced investigator and currently the director of Analysis International, a bespoke financial intelligence and analytics training company, in order to organize a practically oriented seminar on the subject of terrorist detection.

In the course of the seminar the delegates will learn:

  • how to identify terrorist cell indicators
  • how to recognise the methods and motivation to carry out attacks on the European Communities
  • in which ways the Financial sector plays a crucial role in gathering and reporting on intelligence in illicit finance


A series of case studies and group exercises that highlight the fundamental dynamics of terrorist financing based on an examination of the financial material around major terrorist attacks and attempted attacks in the UK and Europe:

  • Identifying Financial Intelligence Opportunities
    The delegates will review a case study on gathering financial intelligence, and identifying financial intelligence opportunities from within their systems and data.
  • Typologies and Indicators
    In this case study the participants will recognise the intelligence opportunities from the collection of ID&V data at the account opening stage and the examination of transactions that indicate terrorist activity.
  • Abuse of Charities / Radicalisation
    These are a linked series of case studies from terrorist finance investigations in which the delegates will focus on the abuse of charities and the intelligence that can be obtained from overseas money flows. The lessons will then progress into examples of how the radicalisation of domestic jihadis can be identified from indicators in their bank accounts. Here the focus is on the Paris attacks and the London bombings of 2005.
  • The Mindset of a Terrorist Financier
    The delegates will observe and report on a video of a terrorist cell planning fraud against banks and other financial services providers recognizing their ability to infiltrate and abuse the mainstream banking system. At the conclusion of the video the delegates will then be tested on their intelligence gathering skills by answering a series of questions from the programme.
