Bitcoin Detective - Investigating Cryptocurrencies

At Blueline Learning, we know that investigators are increasingly frustrated when their investigation takes on a financial element that involves cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. Only the most specialist investigators have a decent understanding of what cryptocurrencies actually are and that tracking transactions is no longer as simple as submitting a production order to a bank or financial institution. Usually unless the job can be shown to fit specific criteria, it is abandoned. Or, specialist companies are contracted to conduct high-level research at a significant cost.

This course will change that completely. By demystifying the theory and giving clear and practical instruction, after completing this course any investigator will have the tools to initiate an online investigation, identify suspects and gather evidence.
