PLATINUM LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT, Dr. Ran Hock
Dr. Ran Hock has done more than any single individual to educate both government and private sector parties with respect to the value of the deep web. He has single-handedly trained hundreds of individuals in the nuances of this major new intelligence resource base. Emphasizing individual analytic skills and common sense rather than arcane expensive and generally unproductive technologies, he represents the intersection of integrity, intelligence, and intuition in the service of all legitimate governments and organizations.
Ran Hock, at our invitation, began a special course on how best to exploit the emerging world of online as well as offline sources, and it quickly became the highlight of the annual event as a pre-conference with the special added value of a new handbook being distributed each year.
