Uses and Limits of Forensic Data Analysis

— filed under:

Computer expert Matthew Curtin explains how to prepare electronic evidence that can stand up to the defense. He presents Uses and Limits of Forensic Data Analysis to the Ohio Investigators Association on March 25, 2009 in downtown Columbus, Ohio.

The real world is considerably more complicated than portrayed on television and even by vendors of tools for forensic data analysis. What happens when an investigator uses evidence to draw conclusions that might be challenged by a forensic computer scientist hired by the defense? Using examples from his own practice, Curtin will discuss cases that turned unexpectedly against prosecutors and offer advice for ensuring that when charges are made, they're made properly, and they can withstand defensive analysis.

The investigators will take back an Introduction to Forensic Computing written by Curtin and published in the Information Systems Control Journal.
