This 3-day course is designed for government and police investigators, to take the cybercrime and Digital media investigator training to another, far higher level than currently offered elsewhere. This is due to the spectrum of experience of the presenter.
Investigators engaged in open sourcing, (OSINT) analytics, digital media examination and device interrogation will benefit greatly from this course. Public protection, Crime analysts, National security, Pedophile, and Specialist offender units will especially benefit, due to the background and experience of the presenter.
Whilst being an advanced level course, it will be presented from an investigators point of view; to benefit those experienced (but non technical) investigators wishing to attend.
Open source investigation is not a simple task anymore. Threat actors and criminals have become more sophisticated and cunning in their online presence. The result of this is the practice of OSINT gathering has become a fine art and skill. This course will enable the delegate to stay ahead of the curve.
The course is intended for the internet cybercrime investigator and researcher, in order to take them from the basic researcher who understands the basics of internet investigation, to advanced open source researcher, able and proficient in providing high quality reports and evidence relating to online investigations and intelligence.
This course is presented in a unique perspective- taking into account human behaviour, real world actions and movements, digital footprints and good practice. Many courses offered in this arena do not have the benefit of experience from a trainer being a former detective with 35 Years experience in cyber crime law enforcement.
This course is delivered by an investigator, to investigators. Whilst there are some slightly technical aspects to the course, the emphasis is on the delegate understanding how to use tools and practical exercises are carried out throughout the 3 days, in order for the delegate to have an excellent working knowledge of how to use the tools and techniques. It also focusses on good digital practice and hygiene, to protect the officer , but to also provide the courts with the best level of evidence possible.
