Leveraging Open Source Intelligence Investigating Fraud Rings
Tue, Sep 27, 2022 1:00pm-2:00pm Eastern
Duration: 60 Minutes


This training is intended for U.S. Criminal Justice Practitioners. Please register using your agency-issued email.


Fraudsters, whether acting alone or as part of an organized, global crime ring, are using every means available to perpetrate and orchestrate large scale schemes against corporations and governments. Open source intelligence (OSINT) can be used to identify assets and information to piece together the traditionally opaque network of people involved in fraud schemes. OSINT sources such as leaked databases, corporate registries, social media, and geolocation are all crucial components in tying together the convoluted web of disparate data points that make up fraud. This webinar will focus on how to utilize OSINT as part of fraud investigations. We will show how to identify relevant sources and methods to access disparate data sources and piece them together to build comprehensive investigations.

Today’s law enforcement agencies are facing a financial crimes epidemic. Millions of consumers are victims of credit card fraud and ID theft each year resulting in the loss of billions. Human traffickers, fuel thieves, and drug dealers are laundering money using prepaid cards, cash applications, and other digital currencies.

Agencies have been slow to make progress, but it doesn’t have to be this way.

What ICAC Investigators Need to Know about Hiding on the Internet: Tor, Darknets, & Dark Markets
Duration: 2 Hours 30 Minutes

Recorded on April 19, 2022

This webinar will build on concepts and techniques discussed in the previous What ICAC Investigators Need to Know about Hiding on the Internet: Proxies and VPNs webinar. But, it is not necessary for an investigator or analyst to have attended the previous webinar to attend, understand, and gain valuable investigative insights from this deep dive webinar.     

Tor is most commonly used to hide one’s identity. But it can also be used by an insider to breach a firewall or Internet filter and is a gateway to what is commonly called the Darknet. While Tor is the most common anonymity network, it is definitely not the only one. And, while Tor Hidden Service servers are the most well-known portion of the Darknet, there are other areas accessible through other networks. You can exchange Child Sexual Abuse Material, discuss criminal tradecraft, buy and sell illicit drugs, find stolen personal identifying information, and negotiate with those offering hacking as-a-service on Dark Markets and in Darknet Vendor Shops.

This webinar is not intended to make attendees experts, but rather to demystify the topic. It includes case studies and a discussion of specific investigative techniques. The webinar will give investigators and analysts the foundation that they need to understand these tools and communities, both how they are exploited by criminals and how they can be used by investigators and analysts.

Our increasingly busy and ever-changing lives cause a lot of stress. Stress is mental tension caused by demanding, taxing, or burdensome circumstances. Stress doesn't just affect our mental state and mood; it affects our physical health as well. That is why it is so important to practice stress management to keep our minds and bodies healthy. Stress management consists of making changes to your life if you are in a constant stressful situation, preventing stress by practicing self-care and relaxation, and managing your response to stressful situations when they do occur. 

This presentation will delve into discussions, tools, and techniques proven to help manage the stress in your everyday lives.

What ICAC Investigators Need to Know about Hiding on the Internet: Proxies and VPNs
Duration: 90 Minutes

Recorded on March 24, 2022

Criminal investigators and analysts need to understand how it is possible for people to conceal and obfuscate their identity and location on the Internet. Two primary methods are through the use of proxies and virtual private networks (VPNs). This ability to hide one’s identity and location on the Internet can be both a challenge and an opportunity. Various methods of concealing identity and location, while engaged in activities on the Internet, provide an opportunity for investigators to engage in covert online research while also providing a means for criminals to engage in surreptitious communication in furtherance of nefarious activities. As technologies, such as digital device fingerprinting, emerge as ways to attribute identity this becomes a topic about which every investigator and analyst must become familiar. This webinar will include an overview of how the web was designed and functions.

A basic overview of IP fingerprinting, browser/software fingerprinting, and device fingerprinting will set the stage for a deeper dive into proxies and VPNs—two of the most common methods used both by criminals and criminal investigators to conceal their identities and locations while engaging in online social networking and online communication.

Understanding the Dark Web
Duration: 75 Minutes

Recorded on March 15, 2022

The dark web has the star quality and luster of a Hollywood movie, but in reality, it’s a den of inequity operated by the technically sophisticated. The more “Googleized” we’ve become as investigators and researchers, the less we understand what’s going on behind the scenes and how to operate in this nefarious world.

This webinar will examine the dark web, the channels used to institute private sales and exchanges, and criminal behavior. Participants will gain a thorough understanding of the dark web—criminality, anonymity, counterfeit products, child pornography, and human trafficking; learn the directory structures of the dark web; and learn dark web languages like Tor and Tails and the lingo of this underworld. Training will include exploring dark web channels for content and finding the resources and specialized search engines for searching against dark web content. Field investigators will understand how to use Tor safely and effectively, while learning the vulnerabilities, and be able to conduct undercover online investigations on the dark web.

The Cat and Mouse Game with Mobile Forensics
Duration: 90 Minutes

Recorded on October 14, 2021

Mobile forensics has been a hot topic over the last few years. Apple is constantly strengthening its security measures with things like remote wiping, not allowing the passing of data through lightning cable, requests to enter a PIN after potentially suspicious actions, 6-digit PIN by default, etc., making digital investigations much more difficult. Android platform vendors performed similar steps to secure their devices.

There are, however, some breakthrough advances in the field of both Apple and Android device forensics, such as checkm8, unc0ver, and checkra1n jailbreaks, agent-based acquisition, chipset-specific Android acquisition, etc.

In this session, we will discuss the latest advances in iOS and Android acquisition, including remote acquisition, and speak about the proper process of analyzing acquired data.

How Preventing Active Shooters and Violence in Schools and Communities Is Now Possible
Duration: 75 Minutes

Recorded on August 26, 2021

Hundreds of incidents, shootings, workplace violence, other attacks are taking place across schools and communities every year. In response, schools and communities continue to invest their money, time, and efforts into more deterrents, like locks, metal detectors, cameras, etc., but what happens when attackers are undeterred like we’re seeing today? A different approach is needed to effectively collect and connect the dots before the attacks to prevent these undeterrable individuals from executing their plans.

That different approach means identifying the common gaps, silos, and disconnects that allow red flags and warning signs to go unanswered, disconnected, and sometimes unseen by the right people until it’s too late. This webinar will reveal not only what these common gaps, silos, and disconnects are but also share extensive research into incidents dating back to Columbine on why prevention failures continue to occur again and again even though more than enough red flags and warning signs existed.

The pains and costs of failed preventions are soaring and seemingly the number of “undeterrable” at-risk individuals are increasing as well. There is no better time than now to understand what’s possible and working for others right now.

Internet Identifiers: Names and Numbers for Law Enforcement
Duration: 2 Hours

This training is intended for U.S. Criminal Justice Practitioners. Please register using your agency-issued email.

Recorded on July 27, 2021

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) have joined together to develop a presentation specifically designed for law enforcement focused on cyber security and the roles our organizations play in helping to combat this ever-evolving problem. ICANN helps coordinates the names and numbers that are used as unique identifiers in the global Internet. It is tasked with helping make sure that the Domain Name System (DNS) remains stable, secure, and resilient. Carlos Alvarez, Director of Trust and Public Safety Engagement at ICANN, will provide an overview of security threats that target the DNS or that leverage it to attack others, and will share about anti-abuse efforts on the DNS and the domain name landscape that are relevant to law enforcement.

The American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) is a nonprofit, member-based organization that supports the operation and growth of the Internet. ARIN accomplishes this by carrying out its core service, which is the management and distribution of Internet number resources such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs) within its defined service region: Canada, the United States, and many Caribbean and North Atlantic islands. Investigating fraud and abuse in the registry is of utmost importance accurately and reliably maintaining registration information is core to ARIN’s mission. Number resource fraud threatens community trust in the registry and reduces the value of the registry to those who rely on it for network operations.

Leslie Nobile, Senior Director of Trust and Public Safety at ARIN, will provide an overview of the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) system and how it fits into the larger Internet ecosystem. She will discuss IP address fraud and abuse, RIR due diligence, tools that can help support law enforcement investigations, and RIR cooperation and collaboration with law enforcement.

Maximizing Justice: Building a Prosecution Review Process
Duration: 90 Minutes

Recorded on July 8, 2021

Presented by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), AEquitas, and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C). 

Justice can be measured and achieved in a variety of ways. In human trafficking cases, there are a number of avenues to justice—and it is paramount to consider both a victim’s perception of justice and law enforcements’ objective to maximize offender accountability. Determining the most effective route to justice requires knowledge of each avenue and the unique statutes, policies, and procedures that shape them.

During this webinar, the presenter will introduce participants to the resource, “Maximizing Justice: Building a Prosecution Review Process.” This resource supports prosecutors and allied professionals in identifying the most effective route to prosecute traffickers. The discussion will highlight how task forces can use this process to conduct investigations more effectively, make charging decisions, support victims, and ultimately proceed to trial.

Hiding in Plain Sight
Duration: 60 Minutes

Recorded on June 29, 2021

With caseloads increasing and data storage sizes exploding, computer forensic examiners are feeling the pressure to clear data and close cases quicker. With the ease of access to pirated material and the lack of legal recourse for such media, many examiners quickly clear the material to ensure there is no illegal material and move on. This can lead to missed evidence. We have discovered a way to conceal a video file within a video as a secondary layer. This prevents many utilities from displaying the second or hidden stream to forensic examiners. With examiners relying on their tools to display all relevant media, in this case, examiners may be inaccurately categorizing the files as clear or non-relevant, potentially missing concealed illegal material. We address the solution to ensuring you are not missing this new potential hiding place and provide open source resources to ensure each video file you investigate is truly non-relevant. This webinar is geared towards computer forensic examiners of all levels, however, all criminal justice practitioners are welcome.

Preventing Violent Crime Through Mitigation of Emerging Shadow Economic Trends
Duration: 75 Minutes

Recorded June 22, 2021

Due to constrained resources and ever-increasing public pressure to "reimagine policing," agencies across the nation are deprioritizing non-violent investigations. In order for the non-violent disciplines to remain relevant, they must demonstrate to leadership how their area of expertise fits into the agency's violent-crime suppression priorities.

In precursor training, we explained how the shadow economy destabilizes our communities and exacerbates the sub-cultures of drugs, gangs, and violence. In this webinar, we will take a closer look at the link between crimes-for-profit and the immediate or subsequent acts of violence they trigger.

Attendees will learn how to:
• Understand how crimes-for-profit generate violence
• Analyze emerging economic trends to anticipate increases in crime and violence
• Create leadership support in relation to their area of expertise and their agency's violent crime reduction program.

In preparation for the advanced policing principles shared in this third webinar, members are encouraged to view requisite webinars: "Shadow Economy 101" and "Disrupting the Shadow Economy Using Motive-Oriented Crime Suppression ."

A Money Laundering Primer
Duration: 90 Minutes

Recorded on April 13, 2021

Money laundering is an integral part of many, if not most, of crime and terror finance. From local crime and tax avoidance, to transnational networks, the source of money will be masked to conceal the source and at the same time serve to make the money usable in the legitimate worlds of business and finance. This requires the professionals involved to exercise expertise, business acumen, and power influence.

This webinar will walk through the basic elements of the money laundering process, describing the phases of money laundering, define money laundering, the element of a money laundering network, areas particularly vulnerable to money laundering, discuss case studies of different types of money laundering, and possible detection/identification of money laundering activities.

Mobile Device Vulnerability Discovery and Exploit Development: A Primer
Duration: 90 Minutes

Recorded on April 6, 2021

This training is intended for U.S. Criminal Justice Practitioners. Please register using your agency-issued email.

Mobile device forensics often takes center stage during investigations and criminal intelligence operations involving digital devices. The capability of these devices is nearly as impressive as the quantity of them. However, recently the burden on examiners is increasing due to lack of lawful access and the need for examiners to rely more heavily on lesser amounts of data available for analysis.

This webinar directly answers two of the underlying questions at the forefront of many discussions:

1. Why are we unable to gain lawful access to locked devices as we once were?

2. Why do our tools seem to support less devices, yet cost more?

This webinar will focus on the process of mobile device vulnerability discovery and research with special attention given to threat modeling and the specific use of lawful access in a global market. Examples of publicly disclosed mobile device vulnerabilities will be highlighted and provided to participants for further reading. Vulnerability discovery, however, is only half of the equation. An exploit needs to be developed to leverage the discovered vulnerability. A holistic approach to mobile device exploit development will be explained and participants will be shown examples of public exploits for mobile devices and connections to capabilities they may already be familiar with.

Disrupting the Shadow Economy Using Motive-Oriented Crime Suppression
Duration: 75 Minutes

Recorded on March 11, 2021

The initial webinar, Shadow Economy 101, examined the critical importance of upholding the rule of law and illustrated how the business-of-crime does intolerable damage to our communities’ economic infrastructure, disenfranchising our most economically vulnerable citizens.

In part two of the series, 30-year Phoenix Police Veteran, Detective Sergeant David Lake (ret.) presents the revolutionary investigative methods he leveraged to combat shadow economic crimes in the fifth-largest city in the nation. His "motive-oriented crime suppression" technique was used to reduce crime (caseload) in less time and with fewer resources than traditional, method-centric approaches. Most importantly, it fundamentally disrupted and dismantled the systems that were propagating criminal offenses without aggravating social conditions by relying on police saturation or mass incarceration.

Through internal research and case studies, attendees will be exposed to:

• Alternative case management concepts
• Techniques for proactive and precision investigations
• New applications of police intelligence and crime analysis

To some extent, many of these networks will engage in the international money movement processes maintained by financial institutions around the world in order to move the money in an efficient and secure manner.

This presentation will describe the legitimate processes used by illicit networks to move money through financial systems.

We will discuss:

• The role of the central banks and automated clearing houses, how they function and the information they maintain about transactions are valuable in an investigation 
• The "backbone of the financial network," SWIFT messaging
• Correspondent banking
• "The Travel Rule" and information sharing between banks involved in value transfer.

Shot in the Dark: A Cold Case Homicide in the Digital Age
Duration: 2.5 Hours

Recorded on February 9, 2021

This training is intended for U.S. Criminal Justice Practitioners. Please register using your agency-issued email

Just a mile away from the Pottawattamie County Sheriff’s Office in Council Bluffs, Iowa, a woman is shot during a nighttime stroll in a public park.  It's the latest in a bizarre series of events, three years into a five-year missing persons investigation.  Closing the case will take years of work, dozens of search warrants, and two weeks of testimony.

This presentation will provide a case study of the investigation and prosecution of a no-body homicide.  Getting to the verdict took thousands of hours of digital forensics to help prove premeditation and tie the killer, who hid themselves using VPNs and proxies, to years of online impersonations of their victim.

Presented by:
James Doty, Sergeant Investigator, Pottawattamie County Sheriff's Office
Ryan Avis, Deputy, Pottawattamie County Sheriff's Office
Anthony Kava, Digital Forensics Examiner/Special Investigator, Pottawattamie County Sheriff's Office

Shadow Economy 101
Duration: 75 Minutes

Recorded on December 14, 2020

Communities are under siege by crimes for profit. When criminals make money, regardless of method (fraud, human trafficking, drugs, counterfeit or stolen goods, cargo, identity theft, or organized retail theft), they create a shadow economy. This illicit activity competes with and erodes the economic stability of our communities. Unique research into the economic impact of the Shadow Economy reveals the critical need to support skilled, targeted investigations, and effective prosecution. Unfortunately, there are ever-increasing efforts to decriminalize non-violent crimes. These policies are fueling the unprecedented growth of the Shadow Economy. In order to defend communities from this threat, investigators will require a counter-narrative to illustrate how these policies are generating more crime, propagating violence, and ultimately leading to urban decay.
