Spyder Forensics DarkNet & Cryptocurrency Investigator – (Live on-site – Techno Security Conference – Wilmington, NC)

2-day Investigations Course

Course Overview

The Dark web had become a place of mystery and intrigue. It really isn’t either. Criminals have found a new neighborhood to commit crimes. Those crimes run the standard gamut of fraud and drugs to illegal gun sales to even chemical and biological material being sold. Investigators are finding evidence of the dark web on computers and phones in local investigations. Investigating what occurs on the Dark web is now an extension of a standard response to a victim’s complaint.

What is the preferred method of payment on the Dark Web? Cryptocurrency! The pseudo-anonymous nature of this form of virtual currency has paved the way for criminals to conduct their crimes.

This two-day course designed for investigators exposes participants to both the Dark Web and Cryptocurrency.

Day 1 is an introduction to the Dark web, where participants will learn what the Dark Web really is, how to build a Darknet persona for investigative purposes, and the basics of investigating Tor Onion Services.

On Day 2 the focus is on cryptocurrency. Participants will be introduced to the concepts of this popular form of currency, how to perform Cryptocurrency transactions, and where we can find evidence of cryptocurrency usage.

At the end of the course, we will tie Cryptocurrency and the Dark web together and how cryptocurrency is used in conjunction with the Dark Web to facilitate criminal activity.
