Cryptocurrency Investigator – Advanced Course
5-Day Advanced Level Course
This Advanced Cryptocurrency Investigator Course is a hands-on practical 5-day multi-instructor-led interactive program designed for law enforcement officials, intelligence analysts, and investigators who want to significantly advance their cryptocurrency investigation and seizure skills. Participants will gain valuable knowledge and a high level of competence through “doing” instead of just watching.
Through a rigorous program of exercises students will become fully practiced and confident in their ability to identify, recover, seize, and restrain cryptocurrencies quickly, securely and properly. Participants will gain critical experience in Cold Storage and the proper transfer of cryptocurrency from a suspect’s wallet to an agency owned wallet during the execution of a search warrant.
Working with different devices participants will learn how to efficiently use the 25 most common hardware wallets, utilize, crack, recover and update different versions of firmware for a variety of hardware wallets, and restore wallets from corrupted devices such as desktops, tablets, and mobile devices. Participants will be accomplished in creating a blockchain, developing their own Tokens, running a node and creating smart contracts all on their own.
Law enforcement, intelligence analysts, and investigators will gain experience in establishing an agency wallet, identifying evidence of cryptocurrency on devices using the advanced search and forensic techniques, identifying paper wallets, finding hidden or obscure cold storage hiding places and discovering hidden Mnemonic BIP39 seeds. After that, participants will go through a rigorous program of exercises and practice the proper seizure, transfer, and storage of cryptocurrency funds.
Participants will know how to secure storage of cryptocurrency to prevent, avoid bad seized cryptocurrency transfers, and recover from a bad seized currency transfer if that happens. Through hands-on practical exercises, participants will become proficient in their ability to decrypt cryptocurrency wallets, recover Private Key QR Codes, perform independent BIP38 password recovery, and access inaccessible wallets.
