Massachusetts Attorney General Hosts Conference to Focus on Seizure and Analysis of Digital Evidence

The SEARCH High-Tech Crime Training Services team will be an integral part of the 2014 National Cyber Crime Conference, which takes place April 28–30 in Norwood, Massachusetts. The event is hosted by the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, and is the only national conference of its kind to restrict attendance to national and international law enforcement agencies.

Law enforcement agencies face a continual struggle to keep up with changes in technology. For instance, often investigators don’t hear about a new piece of technology like a new chatting or picture-sharing app until it comes to them in a case. And then they are forced to play catch up. Helping law enforcement move from being reactive to more proactive is one of the goals of this conference.

The Honorable Michael Chertoff, former Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, and chairman and co-founder of The Chertoff Group, will deliver the keynote address. The conference will feature three tracks of instruction geared for prosecutors, investigators and digital evidence forensic examiners. Event organizers expect more than 450 law enforcement officers and prosecutors to attend.

SEARCH is a training partner for this event, and the entire team will present more than a dozen different topics during lecture sessions and hands-on labs:

  • Social Media Investigations: Searching Profiles, Saving Data, and Addressing Legal Considerations
  • Introduction to Internet Investigations
  • The Recovery of Volatile Data
  • Field Triage and Data Acquisition
  • Introduction to Mobile Device Data Recovery
  • Introduction to Windows Forensic Environment (WinFE)
  • Introduction to Cyber Crime and Computer Forensics
  • Become a Google Jedi: Save Yourself from Information Overload
  • Firefox Add-ons: Free Resources to Enhance your Investigations
  • Investigative USB Apps
  • Life Beyond Facebook: Awareness and Investigative Skills on Other Social Networking Sites
  • Countering Defenses in Digital Evidence Cases
  • Authentication of Digital Evidence
  • Hot Topics in Cyber Crime Law
