The greater use of electronic evidence presents new challenges of integrity and authenticity, costs of retrieval, authoritative interpretation of electronic information, and the capture of constantly changing network information. Apart from the rules, guidelines, standards, and laws pertaining to the use of evidence, forensics play a major part in terms of the science of accurately determining the piece of evidence that is in question, when the action took place, how it came to be, and who or what is responsible for that action. Forensics can involve the search for deleted files, encryption, steganography, metadata, and other important artefacts. Forensic integrity forms the very foundation on which evidence can be trusted and relied upon.
The discussions,exhibition, and presentations also enable delegates to take proactive measures in information management in order to reduce their reputational, legal, regulatory, and financial risks. LTEC is the ideal place to find out how best to manage e-mail recovery, utilise the latest advanced search technologies, manage data identification, preservation, collection, review, and production.
The discussions also deal with challenges that can be encountered with different forms of evidence media, including hard drives, mobile phones, and other electronic data storage devices. After participating, you will leave with the skills that will enable you to perform a legally-admissible and defensible forensics investigation.
