Human Trafficking in Social Media
This one-day course is designed as a specialized class in conducting Human Trafficking and Prostitution Investigations utilizing Social Media and OSINT techniques and tools. Long gone are the days of prostitutes working “the track.” The internet, specifically, Social Media has turned in to the “Modern Day Online Street Corner” for prostitution and Human Trafficking. Additionally, pimps and traffickers rely heavily on Social Media to recruit their potential victims. This course will instruct the student to properly utilize Social Media and OSINT resources to conduct and supplement their prostitution and human trafficking investigations by familiarization with the most commonly used Social Media sites, as well as some lesser known Social Media applications and how to legally obtain information from them.
Computer prerequisite: If you have a personal laptop (Windows or Mac computers using Boot Camp), please bring it to class. If you use an employer’s laptop, it will be necessary for you to have administrative rights. This course might require installing software that will require administrative privileges. If you have any questions or need clarification, please contact [email protected].
