Cryptocurrency 201 - Understanding investigation toolkits, techniques and key forensic artifacts for crimes involving cryptocurrency
While Bitcoin is celebrating its tenth-year anniversary, the criminal use of cryptocurrencies is evolving quite rapidly. This webinar will give an update for law enforcement agencies who need to understand the tools and techniques required to successfully investigate crimes involving cryptocurrency.
Specific topics include:
Perspective on the evolving criminal use of cryptocurrency. How has the use of cryptocurrency shifted from Dark Markets to extortion/ransomware, laundering, cyberattacks and terrorism? To what extent has law enforcement been successful in recovering ransomware, DM and other illicit Bitcoin payments?
Altcoins. Which ones are now being used by criminals vs. Bitcoin, and why? What are the key challenges to investigating each? What are the key forensic artifacts to look for? What are the key differences to understand between them with respect to their underlying blockchain technology? Which ones are gaining/losing traction in the Dark Markets or other uses?
Investigation toolkits and techniques. What are the different types of cryptocurrency investigations? What outcomes can you expect? What are the key tools and companies that can help you with your investigations? How do they differentiate themselves, e.g. crime fighting vs. regulatory compliance and other? What types of cryptocurrencies do each support? What types of investigations does each specialize in?
Future directions in cryptocurrency. What does Facebook's Libra mean for criminal activity? How does the Libra Blockchain differ from Bitcoin's? Is it anonymous like Bitcoin? Is it expected to be heavily used by criminals like Bitcoin? What else is on the horizon?
