Register For Webinar: Real-Time Corporate Investigations

Thursday, January 09, 2020 (10:25:23)
Employee misconduct and unethical behaviour can have devastating effects on a company, from loss of revenue, to reputational damage, the burden of paying settlement costs and resulting fines, additional regulation, and even total closure of the company. In the age of corporate scandal, where malicious individuals or groups put organisations' entire viability at stake, a multi-faceted, real-time approach to threat detection and investigation is critical.

Join this webinar to learn about common challenges facing corporate investigators, the impact of evolving and proliferating data, and why malicious insider actions are so difficult to detect. Plus, see a demo of the Nuix Investigation solution, where we'll cover how Nuix can:
- monitor and review user activity and behaviour,
- conduct incident remediation,
- perform endpoint search and seamless collection, and
- enable simultaneous, collaborative case analysis across teams and disciplines

...all in real time.

Date: 16 January 2020
Time: 12:00PM GMT

Presenter: Stuart Clarke

How To Use Apple Pattern-of-Life Data In Your Investigations

Wednesday, January 08, 2020 (15:26:46)
BlackLight and APOLLO: How to Use Apple Pattern-of-Life Data in Your Investigations

BlackLight's latest release, BlackLight 2019 R3, now has APOLLO framework built in as a plugin to make it even easier for investigators to get the most out of their data. Pattern-of-life data can be used in many types of investigations to get extremely detailed information from device users. What application was a user using three weeks ago? Where has the user been? Was the user walking, running, or sleeping at a given time? Was the user driving distracted, were they parked or moving? Querying and correlating the databases that keep track of these details can help examiners answer a myriad of investigative questions.

Interview With Jason Bailey, Director Of Product Management, OpenText

Wednesday, January 08, 2020 (15:14:02)
Jason, can you tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into digital forensics?

Absolutely. I started in the digital forensic industry in 2005 and a friend of mine started a company called Tableau LLC back at the time - not to be confused with Tableau Hardware. He convinced me to leave a stable job in IT security at a healthcare company to come help him grow the company. And the rest was history.

So I've been in the industry since then. We grew Tableau LLC, and he sold the company in 2010 to Guidance Software. And then just two years ago, Guidance Software was acquired by OpenText and now we're here.

Sarah Hargreaves, Director of International Training, AccessData

Tuesday, January 07, 2020 (15:49:25)
Sarah, tell us a bit about yourself. How did you begin your career, and what is your current position?

My career started when I was working in a legal practice. From a young age, I have always been interested in crimes, criminal process and the investigation of crime. In fact, I always wanted to be a lawyer. I started working in firms with criminal lawyers and was lucky to work in a department that was focused around serious crimes. Things got really interesting for me when computers and digital evidence were involved in offences; either in the commission of the crime or in the police investigations.

I worked on some high-profile cases at that time and I found the whole process of digital forensics incredibly interesting. I ended up going to a couple of training courses whilst I was working in the legal practice and realised that I had fallen in love with digital forensics.

How To Analyze Call Data Records In Oxygen Forensic Detective

Monday, January 06, 2020 (15:53:23)
Hi, this is Amanda Mangan with Oxygen Forensics. In this video, we’re going to go over Oxygen Forensics’ Call Data Expert.

The first thing we’ll discuss is, what exactly is a CDR? A CDR is a call data record, and we’ll talk about the different carriers and the different information that may come with each carrier’s CDR.

Next we’re going to talk about templates. You’ll find that once you’ve collected a few different carriers’ CDRs, you have all of the templates that you’re going to need, and they’ll be there in your storage to access at any point.

Amped DVRConv Update 15182: Concatenation And Ability To Split Converted Files

Friday, January 03, 2020 (10:12:42)
Amped DVRConv Update 15182 is now available with even more parameters to the Program Options menu.


Are you working on a case in which the DVR has exported a certain amount of video in small chunks and need to quickly produce a viewable file of all these individual clips? No problem! We’ve now included the ability to concatenate converted input files into one single output video file.

Simply select Yes to Concatenate within the Program Options prior to conversion and DVRConv will do the rest for you, saving you valuable case work time.

This option is fantastic for a workflow involving common vehicle dashboard cameras, in which the incident is often captured over several segmented video clips, all large in size. Drag and drop them into DVRConv and let it run in the background while you continue with your other workload and you’ll have a converted and concatenated video before you know it!

Amped FIVE Update 15018 With Customizable Reports And Further Audio Support

Monday, December 23, 2019 (15:24:43)
Amped FIVE Update 15018 is now available with the highly requested new Report Template options within the reporting feature that now allows users to customize generated reports using pre-packaged templates or the creation of your own. This is fantastic for tailoring your forensic reports to suit your case or organization needs.

Also now included is playback and encoding support for multichannel audio, and audio support has also been added to the following filters:

-Change Frame Rate
-Video Mixer

We’ve also accommodated audio support when changing the speed of a video, either via Change Frame Rate or using the speed slider within the Player Panel so that the audio will speed up or slow down along with the video.

This update also includes a smarter audio button on the Player Panel, providing icons and tooltips if audio is unavailable and when audio is available but a decoding engine that does not include audio is being used.

As more video evidence is reliant on body worn cameras, vehicle cameras or mobile phone footage, we continue to work on developing and perfecting our audio support to make sure you have everything you need in one place for your multimedia evidence.
