Today’s investigators may find themselves looking through employee emails on a server or scouring mobile devices and social media accounts for evidence, and many of them aren’t sure where or how to look.
Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) August 07, 2014
i-Sight Software has announced that it will offer a free webinar on identifying and collecting digital evidence. The webinar will be presented on August 14th at 2pm EDT by Andrew Neal, investigations and digital forensics expert, trainer and speaker.
The identification and collection of digital evidence are among the most important initial steps in an investigation. And because there is at least some digital evidence in almost every investigation, it’s critical that investigators know the basics of preservation and collection and the importance of bringing in an expert in digital forensics when necessary.
Since electronic files can exist on so many devices, there’s a lot involved in preserving and collecting this kind of evidence. But first, an investigator needs to know where to look and many are surprised at some of the common sources of digital evidence they never considered.
“Aside from the obvious sources of digital information you might look for in an internal investigation, such as laptop computers, desktop computers, smart phones and cell phones, digital evidence can also be found in the cloud, on email servers, on tablets, and even on home computers if employees log in in from home,” says Neal. “Each of those sources may require specific preservation and collection processes and must be handled carefully.”
“Internal investigations often rely heavily on the digital component,” says Joe Gerard, Vice-President Marketing and Sales at i-Sight. “Today’s investigators may find themselves looking through employee emails on a server or scouring mobile devices and social media accounts for evidence, and many of them aren’t sure where or how to look. That’s why we thought this was such an important topic to feature in a webinar, and Andrew Neal has the expertise and experience to make this complex topic accessible to everyone.”
Webinar attendees will learn:
- When digital evidence comes into play
- Sources of digital evidence and what can be found
- The do’s and don’ts of evidence preservation
- Safely collecting and processing digital evidence
- When to call in the experts
