Voices of impact

“Maltego has significantly enhanced innovative training programs for Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Law Enforcement, concentrating on Open Source Intelligence (OSINT), Darkweb, and Cryptocurrency Investigations as part of a government project. It serves as an invaluable investigative tool for law enforcement officers.”

Dr Kyung-shick Choi
Professor of Practice and Director of Cybercrime Investigation and Cybersecurity Graduate Programs / Boston University MET College

“The recent two-day workshop conducted by Maltego at our law school aimed to enrich our cybersecurity law and policy curriculum by offering our students an in-depth look into the technical aspects of cyber forensic investigations using open source data. This initiative underscored my school’s and Maltego’s shared commitment to providing hands-on, practical learning experiences that bridge the gap between legal theories and their application in the rapidly evolving domain of cybersecurity. The workshop's focus on real-world tools and techniques has stimulated further interest among students in the complexities of cyber forensics.”
