While social media and the internet is often used as a quick and easy way to update family and friends on recent activities and share photos, oddly enough the practice of documenting one’s crimes through social media is on the rise.
Through social media and open-source resources criminals, or their friends, have willingly or unknowingly exposed their nefarious actions online. It is not unusual for a case to be won or lost by a single Tweet or Facebook post.
This hands-on 5-day Open- Source (OSINT) and Social Media Investigation (SOCMINT) certification training are specifically designed for investigators who want to know how to conduct efficient, effective, and thorough online discovery.
