Digital investigation co-ordination


This course provides investigators, HR teams and auditors with vital knowledge in the individual disciplines of communications data, digital forensics and open source intelligence, cyber crime and social media. But it goes beyond this to combine these tactics with other disciplines and data sources when formulating a digital strategy.

The course will teach you how to apply an advanced investigative and strategic mind-set in considering and balancing the opportunities and benefits against the restrictions and risks associated with each discipline of digital investigation. 

It will show how they can operate and complement when intelligently cross referenced as part of an investigation strategy.

The course will outline the benefits, and put into operational practice, how having someone with an overview of each element of digital investigation enables a more objective led, cost efficient and successful investigation.

The course is highly interactive and practical and you will carry out hands-on investigations to reinforce the new skills and knowledge you’ve just been taught.

We recommend that, before taking this course, you're already working in an organisation. This way we can make sure that the content of the course and its methodologies are tailored to your exact investigative requirements.
