Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation (HTCE)

shield 

3 days
Intermediate-level course

Nearly every child exploitation and human trafficking case involves the use of mobile devices and mobile networks. Extracting, analyzing and reporting mobile device evidence presents a formidable challenge for investigators who are faced with increased case demands, digital evidence backlogs, limited resources, and limited time.

Participants in this course will gain a basic understanding of best practices and methodologies for extracting and viewing mobile device data, conducting on-scene previews (triage) of mobile devices, creating investigative reports and familiarity with UFED Reader.
