The Social Links Training

Internet searches and investigations are becoming increasingly complex. With the right tools and workflows, however, these current challenges and future requirements can be mastered.
Maltego is the software solution for OSINT research, threat intelligence gathering and link analysis.
Social Links is one of the best collections of transforms for OSINT and SOCMINT research with Maltego.

During the two-day webinar, you will discover the entire Social Links system and learn how to use the transforms correctly to get the most out of them.

Maltego Seminar

Workshop Description

The seminar is held as a private webinar for individuals. This way each student can get the most out of it.

Anyone who provides professional cyber investigations or Internet searches today needs, in addition to mastering the basics of the Internet, useful tools and processes, as well as solid knowledge in the application of these techniques. This webinar is perfect for Law Enforcement, Private Investigators, Journalists, Cybersecurity Analysts and anyone that needs to perform professional OSINT investigations.

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 transforms that then connect the entities to the data source. One of the best providers of OSINT & SOCMINT transformations is Social Links. With more than 800 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 webinar, participants receive a detailed insight into the versatile uses of Social Links with Maltego. In addition, we provide resources to all transformations of Social Links and their use.

This webinar gives the participants the necessary knowledge to unlock the full potential of Social Links.
