Interview With Keith Lockhart, Director Of Training, Oxygen Forensics

Friday, June 21, 2019 (10:59:00)
Tell us about how you first got into digital forensics, and what kept you in the field. How have you seen it evolve over the past 20 years?

The cliché is that many folks that ended up as a LEO using technology to fight crime stemmed from the fact that they knew how to make the printer turn on (or some variant of that). ???? I definitely fit that cliché but then as we started addressing the concept of “they have the information you’re after on the computer in the kitchen” during search warrants, it became apparent we had a whole new “search and seizure” and subsequent “what do we do with this now that we seized it?!” problem set to figure out.

Amped FIVE’s Latest Update Makes Evidence Intake And Verification Easier

Thursday, June 20, 2019 (15:14:28)
Amped Software, a leading developer of forensic image and video analysis solutions used by law enforcement and government agencies worldwide, today announced the latest update to Amped FIVE (Revision 13609), the complete software solution to process and analyze digital video and images.

The latest release includes the new Copy and Verify tool to allow users to verify their evidence straight from Amped FIVE, cutting down on the number of third-party tools or process and, more importantly, saving time and making the workflow even more straightforward.

One of the core principles of working with digital data in a forensic capacity is ensuring that data remains unchanged during investigation and analysis. At Amped Software, one of our core values is that all of our products are forensically sound. Steps we take to ensure this include using only filters to apply enhancements, generating detailed reports providing the ability to reproduce and audit analyst actions, and making sure the original file remains untouched during an import or conversion.

Interview With Richard Frawley, Digital Forensic Specialist, ADF Solutions

Thursday, June 20, 2019 (12:52:55)
Rich, tell us about how you first got into digital forensics, and the evolution you've seen in the field over the past 17 years. What has interested you most and kept you in the field?

I spent 22 years in law enforcement working for the Milford Police Department in Connecticut. It is here I was given the opportunity to take my passion for computers and focus it on digital investigations and forensic examinations.

In the late 90's Milford started one of the first computer crime units in the state and I was selected to be the forensic examiner. I already had a little computer experience and at that time a little was a lot. From that point forward it was from within the LE community that I learned about digital forensics, with entities such as IACIS, SEARCH, and NW3C.
