Digital Forensics: “Choose Your Own Investigation”

Police procedurals and criminal investigation shows on television make it look easy, but digital forensics is a discipline that requires a unique amount of skill and care to conduct a successful investigation. In this presentation, participants will learn what it is like to assist in the collection and analysis of electronic evidence by getting the opportunity to make decisions themselves.

Make the right choices and your case will be successful. But make the wrong ones and a criminal could easily walk free. After running through the mock scenario and comparing participant choices with best practices, our experts will discuss the importance of digital evidence using real-world examples of good and bad investigatory decisions.

Participants will leave this presentation with a more complete understanding of the capabilities of digital forensics and the importance of data that can be found on mobile phones, laptops, GPSs, and other commonly used electronic devices.
