Online Officer Safety: Protecting Yourself in Cyberspace
Tue, Jul 17, 2018 1:00 PM Eastern

Police officers, crime analysts, and other criminal justice professionals are high value targets for cyber criminals. Too often, they are also soft targets. This Webinar will cover the fundamentals of securing wireless networks both at home and when traveling, understanding and controlling social media footprints, and securing digital devices. Many police officers have a personal and family security plan. In 2018, it is important for those plans to extend to the internet, how you connect to the internet, and the devices that are used to make those connections. This Webinar will provide specific, critical recommendations to develop good cyber security plans, processes, and practices.

Collecting Evidence from Online Social Media: Building a Cyber-OSINT Toolbox
Thu, Aug 30, 2018 1:00 PM Eastern

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. 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.

Tor, Onion Routers, Deepnet, and Darknet: A Deep Dive for Criminal Investigators
Thu, Oct 04, 2018 1:00 PM Eastern

Many criminal investigators and analysts have heard of VPNs, proxies, and Tor. But, most would not feel comfortable conducting an investigation in which one of these tools was deployed. Similarly, both the Deepnet and Darknet are widely discussed but often not understood. At the same time, criminal investigators and analysts increasingly are required to conduct investigations and collect criminal intelligence information in these spaces or when these tools are being used.

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 onion router, 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 tools.

This Webinar is not intended to make attendees experts, but rather to demystify the topic. It 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.

The Role of Online Social Media in Predicting and Interdicting Spree Violence

Online social media is changing how people communicate and interact with world around them.  Increasingly, those contemplating engaging in acts of spree violence express themselves in online social media. It is important for investigators and analysts who conduct threat assessments to understand how this expression plays a key role in predicting and interdicting violence. When there are acts of spree violence, items of evidentiary value can now often be recovered from online communities. This evidence can help to shed light on the thought processes and motivations that led to the tipping point of violence.

This webinar will explore the interaction between social media and spree violence through a historical examination of case studies ranging in time from 1927 to 2015. Investigators and analysts, ranging from school resource officers to those who strategically analyze the tipping points for radicalization, can benefit from this training.
