Cyber Security for Law Enforcement
The emerging threat of cybercrime poses unique challenges for law enforcement agencies throughout the United States. Although different methodologically from traditional crimes such as robbery or fraud, the realization that computer-based crimes have severe impacts in the tangible world is starting to dominate public consciousness. The threats posed by criminals in the digital space is increasing exponentially, and citizens will increasingly turn to law enforcement agencies when they are victimized. Phase2 Advantage wants to ensure these agencies can respond to these calls and are prepared to protect the vulnerable members of society who are victimized.
Elevated public awareness has resulted in increased funding for law enforcement agencies to engage the threat of cybercrime. Although encouraging, the lack of available training programs for local and state agencies has the potential to create barriers. We are responding by providing training programs for these agencies, removing the barriers, and proving the needed capabilities to address this threat.
Critical Courses for Law Enforcement
All cyber certification courses offered by Phase2 Advantage provide a high level of value for students. However, two specific courses are particularly relevant to Law Enforcement Agencies, as they directly support their mission to identify, investigate, and prosecute cybercrime in their jurisdictions. The full course descriptions are listed below.
The Certified Digital Forensic Examiner certification course provides both lab and field personnel with the capability of securing irrefutable digital evidence for investigation and prosecution. This discipline of computer forensics focuses on individual devices such as laptops, phones, and portable media.
The Certified Network Forensic Examiner certification course provides both lab and field personnel with the capabilities listed above, but on a larger scale. This discipline of computer forensics focuses on systems and networks of connected devices, live acquisition of digital evidence, and the unique challenges of collecting evidence in a large, distributed environment.
Certified Digital Forensic Examiner
The Certified Digital Forensics Examiner certification course is designed to train Cyber Crime and Fraud Investigation students in the use of electronic discovery and advanced investigation techniques. This course is essential to anyone encountering, collecting, handling, or analyzing digital evidence during the course of an investigation.
Students will learn methodologies to implement forensically sound investigative techniques and industry best practices that withstand legal challenges in a court of law. Topics include evaluation and preservation of crime scenes, collection and documentation of relevant evidence, professional interview and corroboration techniques, maintaining a secure chain-of-custody, and writing a concluding report.
This certification will benefit organizations, individuals, government offices, and law enforcement agencies interested in pursuing litigation, proof of guilt, or corrective action based on digital evidence.
Certified Network Forensic Examiner
The Certified Network Forensic Examiner certification course was originally developed for the U.S. government, and has now been made available to city, county, and state law enforcement agencies. Civilian personnel outside the law enforcement community are also authorized to attend on a case-by-case basis.
This comprehensive course brings digital and network forensic core competencies to advanced levels by presenting students with 20 detailed learning objectives and a series or practical lab exercises. Students will be provided with both experiential knowledge and practical skills that simulate real-world scenarios, investigations, and recovery of evidentiary data in systems and networks. With a specific focus on the centralizing and investigating of logging systems and network devices, students will cover topics such as: Network-Based Evidence and Investigative Methodologies; Wireless Traffic Capture and Analysis; NIDS and NIPS Evidence Acquisition; and, Web Proxies and Encryption.

Advocacy for Law Enforcement Agencies
The founder of Phase2 Advantage, Michael I. Kaplan, has developed training initiatives specifically designated for the law enforcement community. Why? After serving honorably in the armed forces, Michael was recruited into an International Fugitive Task force based in Miami, Florida. He supervised a team of investigators with regional responsibility in the Caribbean and Latin America, tasked with the mission of serving UFAP (Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution) warrants. Michael also served as a course instructor for investigative methodologies and forensic document analysis. A few of Michael’s Federal Letters of Reference have been provided below.
