Advanced Digital Investigations: Finding Evidence for Solving Violent Crimes
On Demand
Duration: 90 Minutes

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

Recorded on June 10, 2021

This webinar presented by subject matter experts will cover the skills necessary to perform advanced cyber investigations using legal, open source, and closed source data. Attendees will learn the concepts and possibilities on how to identify those committing the most heinous crimes.  We will look at a range of techniques for finding the "who done it," from obtaining more evidence to looking through the criminal's eyes and discovering how they chose and researched their victim. We will look at what can be done for crimes committed in public and private spaces. We will look at solutions for finding those selling opioids on the dark web through good, old-fashioned police work.  

We will discuss the interconnections between legal returns, open source, and closed source information by examining each and then walking through case studies where the methods were applied. We will discuss techniques for unmasking people who are using VPNs, TOR, encrypted email services, sock-puppet accounts, and more, followed by a conversation on the way of solving an investigation through the eyes and actions of a criminal, from before and after he/she committed the act.

The webinar will provide a roadmap on how to complete these tasks efficiently and cost-effectively while protecting the civil rights of those we are committed to safeguarding. The NCPTF provides ongoing consultation, assistance, and guidance as needed to implement this training. The webinar is for executives and investigators from senior cyber and homicide investigators to new investigators, prosecutors, analysts, supervisors, and everyone in between.
