The dark web is often seen as a mysterious and malevolent creature, built out of the myths and legends created by popular media and clickbait headlines. In reality, the dark web is home to a vibrant and thriving criminal ecosystem, with a resilient fraud trade at the center of the action. What is the dark web fraud economy? What drives it? What can we do about it?
This webinar will discuss the types of evidence that should be collected in response to a business email compromise/Office 365 email investigation. It will also discuss methods of email compromise (phishing, malware, brute force attacks, and external compromise/credential stuffing), types of data at risk, and commonly seen schemes.
Digital evidence has become an essential part of every legal matter, whether it be a criminal, civil, or internal investigation. Using a case study, this session will demonstrate the methods used to determine that an email submitted as evidence in federal court had been forged. The methods demonstrated in this case study may be reliably referenced when reviewing any questionable digital documents without the need for specialized software. This presentation will demonstrate the probative value of digital forensics in fraud investigations.
"Through the looking glass" is a metaphorical expression meaning on the strange side, in the twilight zone, or in a strange, parallel world. While the internet can be considered a strange, parallel world, it can also be an informative, interesting, yet scary place when conducting different types of investigations. There are various technologies and methods that you can use to protect your identity and information while conducting internet-based investigations. This webinar will illustrate these technologies and methods to keep you safe when investigating online.
This webinar will highlight the changes to the DF330 course and will focus on the advanced skills and knowledge required to analyze data on iOS devices (iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad) and Android devices. Students will use forensically sound methods and techniques to analyze potential evidence, employing advanced techniques to uncover evidence that was potentially missed or misrepresented by commercial forensic tools. Core skills include analyzing artifacts such as device information, call history, voicemail, messages, web browser history, contacts, and photos. Students will learn how to develop the "hunt" methodology for analyzing third party applications that are not supported by commercial forensic tools. In addition to finding data, students will learn how to analyze data by writing custom SQLite queries and will learn to use the terminal as a powerful tool in investigations.
In many sexual abuse cases, DNA or other traditional forensic evidence does not exist, and the outcome often depends on the abilities of a multidisciplinary team to maximize the strength of survivors throughout the investigation and at trial. A former prosecutor and an abuse survivor who recorded the perpetrator's confession share investigative tips, best practices for interacting with survivors, and trial strategies to dismantle the power dynamics of perpetrator and victim.
People living with mental illnesses and intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) are disproportionately represented in contacts with police. These interactions can lead to stressful and dangerous conditions for everyone involved. This webinar will provide an in-depth look at the challenges many communities face and will share real-world experiences in developing Police-Mental Health Collaboration (PMHC) programs to address them.
Counties across the country are building collaborative partnerships to reduce the number of people with mental illnesses in their jails. Despite the progress that counties have made, they still face challenges with sharing information across multiple systems, limiting their success in identifying people involved in these systems, coordinating services and supervision, and tracking the impact of their efforts.
