What Do Techno-Crime Investigations Mean for You?


  • Are you prepared for investigations involving technology…or do you pass the technical part off to someone else?

  • Is the technology related to your investigations making them more time-consuming and expensive?

  • Are you having a harder time finding your electronic evidence?

  • How many different devices could contain potential evidence related to your investigation?

  • If data related to your investigation is stored in the “cloud”, will you be able to find it?

  • If you do find digital evidence, do you know how to preserve it and collect it to maintain the integrity of the evidence?

  • Are you prepared for other potential technical issues such as encryption, darknets, data collected by Internet of Things devices, and cryptocurrencies?


Criminals are using technology to hide from you, because they think it will help them get away with their crimes.


We can help.


The first step is for you to know about the risks from techno-crimes.

We provide you with information about techno-crimes in posts from our TCI Blog, along with other resources in our Free Content Library.

Connect with us on LinkedIn, where each week we post links to other resources related to techno-crimes, security, and privacy.

Join our mailing list, and you’ll receive immediate access to our monthly newsletter, where we’ll provide you with links to interesting and helpful resources, along with our expert analysis and opinions.

When you join the mailing list, we’ll also notify you about other issues related to techno-crimes, along with new resources as they become available.


Why should you listen to us?

The Techno-Crime Institute began as a digital forensics consulting firm in 1999, after our founder and CEO, Walt Manning, completed his law enforcement career.

Walt is the author of the thought-provoking book Techno-Crimes and the Evolution of Investigations, where he explains why technology will force investigations to evolve. For more details about the book, click on either the book title or the book cover image below.

He has seen the world of investigations from many perspectives, from within law enforcement, then as the owner of a small investigations firm, and finally with experience as a Director in a large international consulting firm.

With over 40 years of investigative experience, Walt can help with individual career coaching for investigators, as well as management and business development consulting for investigative firms. For more information, see our “Why Techno-crime Investigations Will Force You to Evolve” page.

TCI can also be a resource for customized training to help investigators and any organization to prepare for techno-crime investigations.

We want you to be able to give better services to your clients, and provide them with valuable education and advice about the risks from technology.

Technology is growing at an exponential rate, and so are the techno-criminals.

We want to help investigators catch up, and even pass them by.
