Vestigo Thematic Workshop

Website Investigation & Analysis Workshop (WIAW)

Workshop Overview

Whether it is a super-massive social media site or a tiny single page personal blog, websites play some part in almost everything we look at online.

Vestigo’s Website Investigation and Analysis Workshop (WIAW), one of our new for 2022 Thematic Workshops for III CPD, is a one-day training event focused entirely on investigative opportunities around websites. From the science of how they are purchased, created and hosted through to researching and navigating content to cross-referencing and verifying and then potentially attributing to individuals.

WIAW is an excellent workshop for III practitioners to deepen their knowledge with essential learning.

Intended Audience

This course is designed for III Practitioners who are looking to upskill. It is recommended that attendees on this course have some previous training or experience conducting Internet Investigation (OSINT) Deployments. It is suited to law enforcement agencies and public sector investigators, particularly those who work in financial investigation, CSEA, Major Crime or any role where websites feature within the investigation and intelligence process.

This thematic workshop is an ideal CPD event for those who have previously attended our III-Pro training.

Workshop Objective

The Vestigo Website Investigation and Analysis aims to provide the confidence, skills and knowledge for online investigators and researchers to underpin their understanding concerning websites and learn new techniques to allow a more technical approach to website investigation.
