Maltego Seminar

Workshop Description

This one-day seminar takes place in our office in Brüggen (Germany) in small groups up to max. four participants with their own notebook.

For the duration of the seminar, we provide Internet access (fiber) as Wi-Fi / LAN.

Anyone who provides professional cyber investigations or Internet searches today needs, in addition to mastering the basics of the Internet, useful tools and processes and solid knowledge in the application of these techniques.

One of the most well-known tools for OSINT research is Maltego. The software is an interactive data mining tool that creates directed graphs for link analysis. Maltego needs transformsthat then connect the entities to the data source. One of the best providers of OSINT & SOCMINT transformations is SocialLinks. With more than 600 transformations, the developer covers many areas.

Whether it’s investigations into Facebook profiles, social media searches for Twitter users, company information, leak database queries, transformations to cryptocurrencies, and daily application best practices: During the seminar day, participants receive a detailed insight into the versatile uses of SocialLinks with Maltego. In addition, there are documents to all transformations of SocialLinks and their use.

This one-day training gives the participants the necessary knowledge to unlock the full potential of SocialLinks. From understanding the underlying technologies to exploiting the full spectrum of Maltego’s analytical capabilities with SocialLinks.
