Modular Course & Conference Blocks

conference-blockIf you’re planning a meeting or conference and need to include cybercrime subject matter expertise, let us help. We can move much of our training out of the classroom and into your conference or meeting by giving investigators a condensed version of the material. In just a few hours, investigators can:

  • Learn the ins and outs of basic cell phone investigation terminology and phone seizure. Give us a couple more hours and we’ll demonstrate devices and resources that are vital to these investigations.
  • Enrich their Internet searching skills by learning how to navigate social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.
  • Discover the latest legal considerations regarding technology and digital evidence in the courtroom.
