About this live webinar

With the live webinar Facebook Investigations you will receive the latests tips and tricks for conducting Facebook investigations. In four hours, Lisette Abercrombie will tell you how to safely and effectively search for information on Facebook and how to secure this information.

In the first part of the webinar we will briefly pay attention to general facts and figures about Facebook. Think about what Facebook exactly is, which target group you will find on Facebook and how many people in different countries of the world are users of Facebook.

Next you will create an attack surface for your Facebook investigation: what information is out there, how can this information be relevant and what to do with data such as names, email adressess, locations and telephone numbers. 

After the general part, you will learn to search for information through the general search bar and through the very complex URL search method. You will not only learn how to use the tool from Sowdust, but also how this tool works and how you can manually build search queries to search for information in a more targeted way.

Next you will learn how to investigate public and private accounts, how to find out user IDs, groups, pages, locations and events, and how to find out mutual friends of two users.

Finally, you will learn how to secure Facebook profiles, friends lists, photos and videos and how to find out a user's email address. You will also learn how to check whether existing data such as an email address is linked to an account on Facebook.

After this workshop you will receive a digital certificate of participation.
