Bitcoin, Blockchain, and Cryptocurrency: A Forensics Course for Investigators is a hands-on practical 3-day training program designed for investigators who want to significantly advance their knowledge of bitcoin, blockchain, cryptocurrency, its criminal applications and forensic techniques. For criminals, cryptocurrency is the ideal method to launder proceeds of illegitimate activities, used for money-laundering, tax evasion, drug trafficking, and extortion. Today’s investigator must be experienced in exposing crimes involving cryptocurrency including money laundering, international fraud schemes, and the Dark Web.
Course participants will become proficient in Bitcoin and Altcoin basics, the Blockchain, cryptocurrencies wallets, exchanges, transactions and the realities of anonymity in the cryptocurrency marketplace. Investigators will learn about device forensics (artifacts), tracking transactions on the Blockchain, seizing wallets, identifying the owner of a cryptocurrency wallet, and the legal issues regarding cryptocurrency. The course will dig deep into the digital underworld of the Dark Web, the best methods for accessing and navigating, and Dark Web .onion cryptocurrency markets and criminal .onion sites. Cryptocurrency, its use and impact on money laundering schemes and terrorism will also be examined. By the end of the course investigators will have the knowledge, skills, and many of the tools to significantly advance their digital forensics and investigative techniques to fight online crime and investment fraud.
