BLD Training

In 2020, BLD worked closely with the Home Office Communications Capabilities Unit (CCU) to identify ways to deliver training during the COVID-19 pandemic. BLD has designed, hosted, delivered and facilitated virtual training sessions and briefings for CCU via a secure platform to law enforcement and investigative specialists. We adapted the delivery of essential training for the law enforcement community to ensure it was suitable for virtual delivery and to date have trained over 2500 delegates through this medium during the lockdown.

 

BLD recognises that to meet the everchanging face of digital and cybercrime, specialists and support resources need to be accessible immediately and these specialists need to continually craft their skills in line with new policies, operating procedures and systems ensuring they meet their organisations needs as well as international standards. BLD provides relevant and current digital investigation and intelligence training across law enforcement, including the Metropolitan Police and National Crime Agency. Our courses enable participants to gain and maintain knowledge and skills around legislation, emerging techniques, technology, products and tactics ensuring they are equipped to fully and lawfully exploit digital opportunities in support of investigations and intelligence gathering operations. Due to our expertise within the digital investigation and intelligence arenas, we were selected to be the learning partner for the Home Office National Law Enforcement Data Programme and the International Communication Data and Digital Forensics Programme.

We also provide investigative support and training. We have provided UK police forces, including Counter-Terrorism, Homicide and Professional Standards with technical investigative services during periods of high demand, assisting with sensitive case files discreetly. We reviewed the requested work with our clients to identify the priorities, timescales and practicalities, providing expert advice and additional options to meet time and budget constraints.

 

BLD is passionate about the work they do and the clients they work with. We strive to make a difference to the law enforcement, military and investigative communities we serve, working closely with a range of international partners to bring the best in digital forensic technology to the communities. In line with ICO guidance regarding digital evidence collection, we provide tools that enable investigators to “travel within space and time” to the specific data required, providing the ability to examine data from a single scene, enabling investigators to pin-point data extracts, reduce extraction time and critically prevents victims experiencing that “digital strip search”.

 

If you are looking for an innovative, bespoke solution to your issue, BLD is the team for you!

PRODUCTS

 

ODYSSEY logo 1

ODYSSEY is a focused digital acquisition capability for on scene deployment and real time mobile device examination. Investigators and digital forensic specialists managing RASSO investigations and other cases where data is required on scene from a compliant victim/witness device, ODYSSEY allows for date and application specific data to be obtained, while ensuring victims and witnesses private lives remain private.

 

Benefits of ODYSSEY include:

  • Victims and witnesses not being without their device, they maintain control
  • Only relevant data is downloaded, reducing data volumes for disclosure and storage
  • Fewer devices are submitted into a digital forensic unit
MEDEX

Unlike any other software, Medex reveals information that is not present in the metadata of a digital video file. With this additional intelligence, investigators are answering new questions about video and identifying additional crimes and perpetrators in previously impossible ways.

Medex enables investigators to authenticate citizen-submitted videos, rapidly identify CSAM production, triage videos from mobile device extractions and expedite actionable intelligence, identify deepfake videos, detect tampering or modification of digital videos, identify a video’s provenance including origination camera make/model and any editing software or platform.

Fivecast

Covering the end-to-end intelligence process, Fivecast ONYX, their Open Sourse Intelligence platform, is a completely scalable solution, with the power to seamlessly and rapidly increase vision of your targets, without needing more skilled staff to carry the load.

Targeted, automated and obfuscated collection of data in real-time across a broad range of online platforms is combined with a customisable and AI-enabled risk assessment framework that automates complex intelligence analysis.

Chainalysis

Cryptocurrency gives criminals new ways to evade detection. Our partner, Chainalysis, the blockchain analysis company, provides compliance and investigation software to the world’s leading banks, businesses, and governments. Their software helps investigators identify and stop bad actors who use cryptocurrencies for illicit activity such as money laundering, terrorist financing, human trafficking, drug trafficking, and more. As experts in financial crime and economic analysis, they empower customers to derive insights they can act on. Subscribe to the Chainalysis newsletter to find data-driven content on cryptocurrency markets, regulation, and developments.

Technology is an integral part of our daily lives. But criminals also exploit it to communicate, organize and commit crimes. Reliance on technology leaves behind “digital footprints” and a mountain of data that can contain incriminating evidence.

As a partner of Cellebrite, BLD provides the tools, training, and support to implement an end-to-end Digital Intelligence strategy. Investigators can now access, manage and analyse forensically sound digital evidence, and effectively break down the silos across departments to close more cases.

ADF authorised partner logo

BLD is an Authorised Partner of ADF Solutions. All ADF products are built on the same intelligent forensic search engine and are designed with rapid scan capabilities. ADF tools focus on automation and ease of use for deployment to both field investigators and lab examiners. The focus is collecting forensic artefacts fast, which is why ADF has been both a pioneer and leader in forensic triage and automated investigations for 15+ years.
