What? During each webinar, we will discuss the different types of communications often used by today's criminals, and how you can move beyond calls and texts to harness the power of your data to gain a broader, more complete understanding of the communication activity in your cases. We will cover several general concepts that will be broadly applicable, and we will also use PLX, the latest version of Pen-Link software, to demonstrate various approaches and techniques for collecting and analyzing a wide variety of internet-based communications data. The topics to be covered include:

  • Cell Phone Forensics - What You May Be Missing. You may already be loading data forensically extracted from cellular devices, looking at calls, texts, contacts, and multimedia. Did you know that such extractions may also contain valuable messaging from apps and social media services, including content? Lean how to use PLX to analyze the data you've already collected, but may not be currently using.
  • Sources. Learn the different sources of internet-based communications that are available to you and what kind of information you can get form them.
  • Search Warrants. Learn to use search warrants to get the full extent of internet communications data from today's top apps, services, and providers, including: Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, Blackberry Messenger, Gmail, Hotmail / Outlook.com, and Yahoo! Mail.
  • Internet + Phone. Learn how to use internet-based communication data in conjunction with the phone data you're already collecting to gain a broader understanding of your case's communications landscape.
  • Large Data Sets. Learn how to deal efficiently and effectively with the sheer volume of new data that you'll collect.

Preparing for WebEx
 
We conduct our webinars through WebEx. To participate, you will need access to the internet, and you will need to have the WebEx plugin installed for your preferred web browser. If you do not have the WebEx plugin, then your browser will attempt to download and install it the first time you join a WebEx meeting, but you must have administrative privileges on your computer for the plugin to be installed. Alternatively, you or your local system administrator can download, install, and test the plugin for your browser any time before the webinar, by joining the secure test meeting hosted by WebEx.
