Live online workshop Telegram Investigations - English spoken

Telegram is a free application where users can exchange encrypted and self-destructing messages, photos, videos and files. Due to its extensive privacy functions and accessible nature, Telegram attracts a mix of criminals, troublemakers and hate groups. For example, items such as drugs, firearms and heavy fireworks are offered and sold in groups. In other groups, demonstrations or other forms of incitement are being prepared. In short: Telegram contains a wealth of information. In this three-hour live online workshop you will learn everything about conducting an investigation on Telegram.
