Cross-Geographic Open Source Investigations

Friday, April 27, 2018 (14:57:54)
When it comes to online investigations, a lot of open source intelligence (OSINT) can be – and usually is – gathered via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google and Instagram. But in addition to these global giants, every country has its own little treasure trove of slightly less conspicuous and often very useful local information sources.

Interview With Richard T. Frawley, Digital Forensic Specialist, ADF Solutions

Tuesday, April 24, 2018 (08:35:28)
Rich, you're a Forensic Specialist at ADF Solutions. Tell us a bit about your role - what does a day in your life look like?

One of the things I love about forensics is every day is different, every day is a different task, a different challenge, a different conversation with a different person, and most of all enjoyable. One day I am researching the newest apps or programs to be integrated into the next release of the ADF software product line, the next day I’m creating new data sets to be used in training or web demonstrations. Next week I could be at one of the CAC (Crimes Against Children) conferences presenting our latest topic "On Scene Investigations" or chatting with the law enforcement community on the latest challenges in digital forensics.

Liaising with Sales and Marketing is another function that allows me to take my passion for digital forensics and convey it through webinars, demonstrations, and training. It is here I get to have conversations with the forensic community and more specifically the law enforcement community.
