This course provides the technical and legal information prosecutors need to see cases involving digital evidence through the entire criminal justice process, from seizure and extraction to admissibility to verdict. Topics include digital evidence commonly seized during the execution of a search warrant, digital evidence stored remotely by third-party service providers, and the processes investigators use to obtain this evidence (such as the interrogation of digital devices). There is a strong focus on case law and other legal issues surrounding the collection and custody of digital evidence, as well as its use at trial. The course also examines new legislation like the CLOUD Act, which is reforming the digital evidence landscape just as rapidly as the ever-changing case law.

Many mobile phone users choose to share Advertiser ID information with app developers and social media companies. This includes precision handset geolocation information. Advertiser ID handset geolocation information is separate and distinct from handset geolocation information collected by cellular carriers, by Google for Android OS devices, or on iOS handsets in Significant Locations. Commercially available Advertiser ID information can be used during criminal investigations to determine if a handset was at multiple crime scenes near the times of those crimes and to determine specific locations where a handset was previously located. This webinar will discuss Advertiser IDs, show where Advertiser ID controls are located on iOS and Android OS handsets, outline investigative use and considerations, and detail specific instances when evidence collected from commercially available Advertiser ID information was used during the investigations of serious crimes.
