SARs & Money Laundering: Connecting the Dots
Tue, Sep 21, 2021 1:00pm-2:40pm
Duration: 100 Minutes

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

Registrations will close 24 hours before webinar start time.

Do you spend days and weeks attempting to find the ‘smoking gun’ buried in the Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs), bank records, and other business documents? Conducting complex financial investigations requires you to capture and analyze data from cross-channel files including cash deposits and withdrawals, wire transfers, bank and credit card statements, and other reports with ‘red flag’ activities.

 The ScanWriter Team will demonstrate a critical anti-money laundering tool that intelligently offers visibility for illicit money movement from even the most sophisticated criminals. The highlights of this demonstration include how to:

• Automate the data capture and enrichment techniques for various financial investigation case documents, such as, SARs, cash withdrawal and deposit slips, business/personal/travelers’ checks, bank statements, and more.

• Unravel relationships between the SARs and the money flow from bank records to build a confident case strategy.

• Create accurate reports with an audit trail for improved data integrity and instant substantiation for all transactions.

• Produce valuable insights through dynamic graphs and share results through effective visual storytelling.

DFIR First Response: Five Best Practices for Digital Forensics Incident Response
Tue, Sep 28, 2021 1:00pm-2:15pm Eastern
Duration: 75 Minutes

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

Registrations will close 24 hours before webinar start time.

Unfortunately, major criminal or terrorist incidents rock heavily populated areas far too frequently. Witnesses at the scene have captured images and videos with their mobile devices, sometimes without realizing it, that can help law enforcement and intelligence agencies gather vital evidence in the first few critical hours after an incident.

But today, the process of collecting and triaging evidence is still analog, and when racing against the clock, the delay creates unnecessary barriers to containing an incident. Frontline investigators need to send the material to the lab and wait till they have processed it, and some victims and witnesses don’t want to surrender their mobile phones and have to be without them, all at the cost to critical time.

However, to improve response time, collect critical evidence, and triage evidence for enhanced investigation, there are new best practices that can be employed to improve your incident response using digital forensics.

Join MSAB for a walkthrough and discussion of best practices that frontline officers can use to improve their incident response using digital forensic solutions, from ways to crowdsource evidence collection at the scene of an incident, to how to triage data using watchlists and tags, and how to forward critical evidence to other analysts and investigators in the investigation process.

EXIF Data: What is it, where can we find it, and how can extracting information from these files aid in your investigations?
Wed, Sep 29, 2021 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.

Registrations will close 24 hours before webinar start time.

What is EXIF data, where can we find it, and how can extracting information from these files aid in your investigations? Social media platforms, web services, and even messaging apps often remove GPS and other forms of vital information from media they process. However, media uploaded to online forums, the dark web, and blog pictures often still contain EXIF data. During this session, we discuss methods to uncover this information, learn more about photos and videos posted online, all in an open source format.

The Cat and Mouse Game with Mobile Forensics
Thu, Oct 14, 2021 1:00pm-2:30pm
Duration: 90 Minutes

Mobile forensics is 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 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 Mach 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

Leveraging Technology for Your Fraud and Financial Investigations
Duration: 75 Minutes

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.

Future of Preserving Digital Evidence
Duration: 90 Minutes

Recorded on January 26, 2021

Digital forms of evidence, from cell phones to body-worn camera videos, each have brought new challenges towards convincing judges and juries that the digital evidence (as presented to the court) is an accurate representation of the original evidence. Also, the ease of copying and sharing computerized files complicates the protection of privacy rights, as well as the prevention of unauthorized modifications. Tracking the chain of custody becomes more complicated when files are stored in central databases accessible to many users.  

This webinar reviews the challenges of protecting the integrity of digital evidence, and the expectations that courts have about how the evidence can be shown to be faithful to the original creation. Legal requirements for protecting the privacy of witnesses and victims will also be described, and best practices for controlling the dissemination of digital evidence will be highlighted. 

New frameworks, such as zero trust architecture, offer ways to add confidence to the methods of preserving the integrity of digital evidence and technologies. Implementing these new measures can be helpful to agencies in meeting legal and regulatory requirements. The presentation will also include recommendations for principles that can be applied in the procurement process, as agencies acquire new systems that generate more digital evidence.    

This webinar is sponsored by Intelgard. NW3C is providing the webinar so that attendees can have more information with which to evaluate how this capability might add value to them and the organizations they serve.

Linux Forensics and Why it's Important
Duration: 90 Minutes

Recorded on December 28, 2020

Why do we need to learn Linux forensics? Well, nowadays when you look at the number of tools available on different penetration testing systems running Linux, you should stop and ask yourself a basic question “are these tools and systems always going to be used for ethical purposes?” The answer is definitely, NO! Another reason to consider learning Linux forensics is that not everyone uses Windows. You may arrive at a crime scene only to find that your suspect’s computer is a Linux operating system! If you don’t have the proper skillset, you will be shocked and start to question your knowledge and abilities. What should I do? Do I have the skills required to collect data from this system? Where should I look for artifacts? What do these artifacts even look like? How can we identify and track user activity? etc. This session should help you answer most of those questions and get you started with Linux forensics.

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.

Information Exposed: Opting Out & Managing the World of Connected Devices
Duration: 90 Minutes

Recorded on September 15, 2020

Investigators need to understand the dark side of information sharing and the potential risks it brings to victims, witnesses, and investigators. To avoid potentially dangerous individuals, first responders, security professionals, and intelligence officers choose to keep their families and homes off the grid. Employees and agencies are at greater risk now more than ever because fraudulent predators are taking advantage of those unfamiliar with working from home. Hacking, phishing, and scamming are on the rise, and the threats are expected to increase. Helping the public and high-risk targets protect their personally identifiable information is a priority during these uncertain times. Opting out of online personal data aggregates and managing the technology devices inside your home can reduce the risk to you and your family. This webinar is meant to help facilitate your understanding of the dark side of information sharing and how to protect your, your family’s, and the high-risk targets’ personal privacy in a very open online world. There is no one solution, no one vendor, that has all the answers. Knowledge from this session will enable you to begin to remove, obstruct, or obscure the open source information that leaves you, your family, and high-risk targets vulnerable online.

Learning Objectives:

• Understand the dark side of information sharing.
• Identify private lives and public information available through websites, social networks, and “Invisible Web” sources.
• Discover ways to protect your privacy by implementing basic security practice online, at home, and on social media.

Tor, Darknet, and Dark Markets: A Deep Dive for Criminal Investigators and Analysts
Duration: 2 Hours 30 Minutes

Recorded on June 15, 2020

This webinar will build on concepts and techniques discussed in the previous What Investigators Need to Know about Hiding on the Internet:  Proxies and VPNs webinar.  You can register for that on-demand webinar at:  https://www.nw3c.org/webinars/Register?id=10838. 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 criminal and how they can be used by investigator and analysts.

Understanding Facebook Search Warrant Returns
Duration: 60 Minutes

Recorded on June 4, 2020

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

Data of evidentiary value in criminal cases is generated both on the suspect device and the services it utilizes.

Follow the Money: FinCrime Investigation Case Studies
Duration: 90 Minutes

Recorded April 28, 2020

Money laundering is a global, trillion-dollar crime that extends into all areas of commerce. The reality is that money laundering isn’t just a standalone crime, it is also a symptom of additional crimes which generate illicit proceeds. Whether due to lone wolf criminals, as the result of transnational organized crime, or international corruption, money laundering can be challenging to prove as both a factual matter and as part of a criminal prosecution.

This learning session will outline not only the essential elements of a criminal case of money laundering, but also examine how additional charges can be brought to flush out the elements of that charge. Attendees will get a better understanding of the prosecutor’s approach to money laundering (and its related crimes), as well as tools to follow the transactions that can substantiate such a charge. By moving from the academic to applied subject matter, attendees will get deep insight into how to both trace illicit assets, as well as how to prepare their findings for criminal cases. The webinar will rely on real-world examples of financial crime and explain how cases like those can be further built out by investigators, analysts, and compliance officers.

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

Recorded April 16, 2020

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, provides 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.

Collecting Evidence from Online Social Media: Building a Cyber-OSINT Toolbox
Duration: 90 Minutes

Recorded March 2, 2020

There is a rapid evolution in the technologies people use to communicate and share material with each other, in the companies providing the sharing platforms, and in how people choose to communicate with each other. People are increasingly choosing to communicate using text, images, and videos rather than traditional electronic voice communications. And, they increasingly choose to use platforms that make this communication openly available for others to view. This means that evidence associated with not just metadata, but also content of communications can often be collected through open sources long after the communication is completed.

While evidence of criminality and victimization can be recovered through open source investigative techniques, many of the commercial tools marketed to criminal investigators and analysts are expensive. This sometimes places them outside the reach of police departments. And, social media companies are increasingly blocking API connections for commercial tools that allow the tools to be used for “surveillance”. For these reasons, it is increasingly important for criminal investigators and analysts to build an inexpensive cyber-OSINT toolbox.

This Webinar will discuss the rapidly evolving ecosystem of online social media and how people are changing how they choose to communicate. It will then detail and demonstrate free and inexpensive cyber-OSINT tools that criminal investigators and analysts can use to start build a cyber-OSINT toolbox.
