To deliver this course, we use a service called GoToTraining, which offers an online training space.

You will need 2 Internet enabled devices. The first such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop is in order to view the training presentations and listen to the Instructor.

You can use your own device for this purpose, and an App is available from GoToTraining.

The second device will be used to complete the exercises and work along with the instructor and will need world wide web access enabled. A work laptop will be fine for this purpose, although some websites may not be available via your corporate network.

The internet is an increasingly important tool in a wide range of investigations. When used effectively it enables organisations and investigators to save both a considerable amount of time and money. However, failure to research properly, monitor changes, capture data, and follow procedures or legislation could result in any evidence obtained being rendered inadmissible.

It is essential that all investigators have a full understanding of how to effectively use the internet when conducting investigations, including what information is available on the Internet, how to plan an Internet based investigation and how to locate, evaluate and present evidence.

This is an essential course for anyone that uses the internet as part of an investigation or intelligence gathering exercise.
