Autopsy: Open Source Digital Forensics Basics Part 1

Autopsy is a free and open source digital forensics platform with many features comparable to those found in the leading commercial tools. It can be installed on Windows, macOS, and Linux operating systems. In part 1 in a two-part series, this webinar will start by walking through setting up a new case and exploring effective tool usage. Attendees will then learn digital forensics best practices and methods for quickly locating items of evidentiary value.

Understanding Facebook Search Warrant Returns

Data of evidentiary value in criminal cases is generated both on the suspect device and the services it utilizes. While recovery of data from the suspect device is regularly performed, user account data stored off-device from these services often remains overlooked. This overlooked data is increasingly becoming crucial evidence in cases. In this webinar, we will manually review a Facebook search warrant return examining the different artifacts that can be provided within a return. Once manual examination is complete, a review of the same return with an automated tool will be conducted so the two methods of examination can be compared.

Encryption, Encoding, Inaccessible Data and Devices

Hash, encryption, full disk, file based, and the list goes on! Words used correctly and incorrectly when examiners discuss or even report on evidence. This webinar is intended to lay the framework for a factual understanding of how encryption and hashing are used in our digital investigations. Real world applications of hashing, and encryption will be shown, with an emphasis on how they impact investigations in 2020. Questions such as: "Does the application encrypt data?", "How is it encrypted?", and "Why can't I decrypt it?" will be discussed.

Webinar – First-Responder Trauma

This webinar will highlight the experiences, efforts, and needs of first responder agencies relative to exposure to traumatic stressors specific to the opioid crisis.

Using information gathered from interviews with mid- to high-level supervisors from several local law enforcement agencies, as well as fire department and emergency medical services staff, speakers will discuss insights into the awareness of this work’s impact on first responders, the measures agencies have taken to minimize negative effects on staff, and products or tools needed to advance these efforts.
