Industry Roundup: Cloud Forensics

Friday, January 24, 2020 (13:12:42)
by Christa Miller

Only a few short years ago, the idea of recovering forensic data from the cloud seemed like either troubling overreach, or unnecessarily redundant given the availability of evidence from mobile devices.

As encryption became more prevalent on those, however, law enforcement has increasingly come to rely on cloud-based evidence to build cases. The law appears to be catching up, too, with legislation like the United States’ Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data (CLOUD) Act and California’s new GDPR-style Consumer Privacy Act, along with decisions like last September’s Google LLC v. CNIL, in which a European court held that Europe’s “right to be forgotten” only applies to EU citizens.

The iPhone Health App: A Forensic Perspective

Thursday, January 23, 2020 (15:06:41)
Jan Peter van Zandwijk discusses his research at DFRWS EU 2019.

Hello, my name is Jen Peter van Zandwijk. I work with the Netherlands Forensic Institute. And in this half-hour I will tell you about some research that they did on the Health app on iOS, and then you can go to lunch.

I did this research not long ago, I worked together with my colleague Abdul Boztas, who helped me with a lot of the experiments.

And the most important thing that I want you to remember from this presentation is that the app registers both steps and distances, and we have found that the accuracy of the steps registered is much better than the accuracy of the distances registered.

Review: AccessData Enterprise From AccessData

Wednesday, January 22, 2020 (13:11:35)
by Jade James

AccessData Enterprise enables investigators to forensically image and analyse devices. It also provides a means of workflow analysis and documentation, as well as a level of staff management. The inclusion of FTK means that examiners can conduct forensic investigations without interrupting business operations.

AD Enterprise enables the user to preview live data on any end user point that has the agent installed. With remote collaboration, investigators across different departments can work together more efficiently. Discretion is often crucial to a successful investigation; knowing this, AccessData have ensured that with Enterprise, investigators can conduct investigations without arousing suspicion amongst end users.

Quality Management System Standards In Forensics: An Executive Overview

Monday, January 20, 2020 (12:29:33)
by Tim Alcock, Qualimetric

This presentation is designed to give an executive overview of the Quality Management System standards and guidelines applicable to organisations providing forensic science services to the Criminal Justice System in the UK.

Organisations can achieve independent recognition to these standards via an accreditation process which confirms compliance. This is generally voluntary, but in the UK, whilst not yet mandated in law, the Forensic Science Regulator has required that Forensic units are accredited to relevant International standards (ie ISO/IEC 17025, 17020).

As the standards mentioned above were not specifically written for forensics applications, supplemental documents have also been published (such as ILAC G-19) and in the UK, the FSR Codes criteria of Practice and Conduct and associated documents as well as specific accreditation body requirements. This presentation provides an overview of the application and relationship between these documents.
