Christina Corrigan, CCI
Customer Operations Manager – Trustlabs Compliance Solutions ltd
The Cryptocurrency investigations course from Blockchain intelligence group was extremely informative and enlightening. It helped me to connect the dots in how Cryptocurrency can potentially move around, how to follow the money and build an investigation. The content covering the fundamentals of blockchain is probably the most easy to understand that I have seen to date. The course takes complex content and makes it easy to digest and understand. I think that this course should be mandatory for new hires for any company that interacts with the crypto space.
Thanks for the knowledge!

APEC Head of Financial Crime Compliance, Adjunct Professor, University of HK Faculty of Laws, Natixis
A well-designed course with the right balance between the necessary technical elements and the practical aspect of Investigation and Compliance.
Not only law enforcement officers, regulators, Fintech Compliance officers interested in Blockchain, DLT, and Forsenic, should attend.
The fact is that if you are working in traditional FinancialCrime, investigation, AML, compliance, Audit, legal, you better hurry up. With more and more investment banks, asset manager, and financial institutions globally getting their feet into this asset class, it is not a choice to ignore, but to understand, including the risk and the evolving regulatory expectations surrounding it.

The Certified Cryptocurrency Investigator (CCI) course has expanded my understanding of the Blockchain and Crypto- Forensics a great deal. I am able to better engage with both law enforcement and financial institutions on communicating the importance of tracing cryptocurrency and de-anonymizing the identities of illicit actors to disrupt the economics of criminal activity such as human trafficking and child exploitation.
