About this course

The Cellebrite Social Network Investigations (CSNI) course is a 4-day program designed for technically savvy investigators, digital evidence analysts and forensic practitioners. This course provides students with an introduction to social media investigations to include pre-seizure actions and basic investigative techniques. Students will learn how to create undercover accounts and use open source intelligence to gather information from publicly available information from social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Periscope, and more. Using real life application and comprehensive instruction on legal processes (subpoenas, orders, warrants), students will learn how to identify and contact suspects. To complete the work ow, students will learn how to properly seize devices for extraction and how to work with the data that is returned from forensic examinations. Students will also learn methods to de-conflict their cases from other law enforcement officers. As course progresses, students will be exposed to tools and techniques to collect social media evidence from devices and cloud data sources (UFED Touch and Cloud Analyzer). Students will earn a CSNI certificate documenting successful completion of a knowledge exam with a score of 80% or better.
