Network Footprints 

Server identification where subject inadvertently and accidentally leave footprints that they cannot control

Historic and Deleted Data

Data Analysis

The biggest problem for the investigator. We may identify the device , but can we associate that with an individual. This course shows you best practice to achieve this. 

Movement and Lifestyle.

This module looks at movement and lifestyle associated with the device footprint in order to identify commute routes, places frequented, times dates, speed direction, etc. The handset footprint can tells what this persons lifestyle is. This module will have workshops so you can identify the user, and real life examples of when this has been used. 

Analysis 

Matching data to i2 data sets and charts . Blending data together effortlessly to identify the life of your target.
