Vere Software is pleased to announce the return of its popular, free “Online Investigations Basics” webinar series. Designed to help investigators maximize their online evidence collection skills, the monthly webinars will feature investigative techniques and issues such as: Tracing IP Addresses, Online Sources of Information, Online Identity Theft Investigations, Internet Relay Chat (IRC) Investigations, Investigating Social Media…The webinar series builds on the original series, offered in the fall of 2009, by offering both new courses and updated content from some returning instructors as well as new voices. Established experts in their fields, the Online Investigation Basics instructors will take questions from, and interact with, webinar attendees during a structured Q&A period within each 60-minute presentation.
“The response to our first online investigations webinar series was so positive that we knew we would offer it again,” said Todd Shipley, Vere Software president and CEO. “Eighteen months later, we’re pleased to offer the most popular of our previous series, together with new content, that provides valuable information at no cost to law enforcement, private, and corporate investigators.”
In addition to the Online Investigation Basics series, Vere Software will continue to provide its monthly WebCase webinars. “These webinars allow investigators to get to know our software when they can’t attend our on-site training,” said Shipley, who provides the 60-minute instruction.
The first Online Investigation Basics webinar is Thursday, February 17. Dr. Gary Kessler of Gary Kessler & Associates will present on “Tracing IP Addresses,” in which he will introduce concepts about the TCP/IP suite, the Internet, IP addressing and domain names, and the administration of Internet names and numbers. He will also demonstrate tools to support IP tracing.
Interested investigators can sign up for any or all of the webinars at the Vere Software website.
