Cell Phone Analysis, Social Media and Google: Detective School Course 05
Class Description

Call detail records (CDRs) contain a wealth of information that is often overlooked. This presentation will cover the many things to consider and look for when analyzing call detail records, and how those findings can propel an investigation forward. With a good understanding of importance and significance of this data, you can develop leads, locate evidence, and figure out whose door to knock on next!

Social media is a huge part of most people's lives, and criminals are no exception. They use many forms of social media to facilitate, promote and even brag about their criminal activity. This class segment is an introduction to the social media biggies: Facebook, Instagram, and SnapChat. The class covers how to work with these companies to get social media data, why you need it, and what to do with the data once you get it.

If you haven't started incorporating Google data into your investigations, it's time to start. Similar to call detail records, Google data can include location information, which can be crucial to investigations. This class segment will introduce the types of data that Google can provide, how to get it, and what to do with it.

This is not an Excel "how to" presentation, but rather a look into the innovative ways you could be interpreting data, and questions you should be asking to make the most of your data.
