Course Objective

This course was designed to follow the proper steps of a Social Media case from beginning to end. The first day starts by introducing the attendees to many various current social media sites and applications, such as Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, Snapchat and more. The attendee will be instructed on the various different locations to find evidence involving the sites and applications. The second day will cover how to use that data to identify the location where the incident occurred. The attendee will then be instructed on how to properly conduct a router interrogation at that location, to confirm that the correct device is located, and all other devices identified. The third day will then include how to properly seize the devices inside that network, to include creating a RAM dump, checking for encryption and conducting a live acquisition on scene if necessary.

Course Content

Social Networking Sites: This portion of the class is designed for Detectives, School Resource officers, and anyone involved in conducting investigations involving social networking sites. Students will be introduced to the various Social Networking sites including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok and others. The student will be instructed on the steps to preserving a profile, prepare a warrant to obtain all of the server-based data, and obtain a copy of the profile via consent. The student will then be shown all of the data available from each of the social media sites, and how to understand the data and identify the responsible party. Lastly, the student will be shown how social media artifacts are even able to help solve crimes not committed on the social media sites. Router Interrogations: This portion of the class is designed for the first responder, raid team leader, or any other person with the responsibility of conducting search warrants on networks, in the home or at the office. Different types of networks will be discussed ranging from simple home wireless networks to large business networks. The attendee will then be instructed on how to examine and analyze Routers on scene, to identify what devices are still attached to the network and need to be seized. The day will end with the students examining numerous different routers located at the training center. Encryption Checking / Ram Dumping / Live Acquisition: This portion of the class is designed for the first responder, probation or parole officer, or any other person with a need to seize computer systems at a residence or office. The student will be instructed on how to obtain the volatile data (RAM), determine if the machine is encrypted, and if so, how to conduct a live acquisition.
