Myth v. Reality. There is no question technology has become ever-present. It impacts almost every aspect of the daily lives of adults and children. With each click, share, post, message, or other communication, individuals create a digital footprint. Often the most substantial corroboration of a child’s disclosure resides in the digital realm. Understanding and legally seizing and searching the different types of evidence left behind from technology use is critical to a successful investigation. This presentation will highlight the most common areas to find digital evidence at local and cyberspace locations. Using examples of different types of IoT devices, social networking sites, and common artifacts recovered from computers, tablets, and smartphones, participants will understand the essential nature of digital evidence. The presentation will also expose some of the more creative fictional examples of potential locations of digital evidence. This workshop will only be recorded and available On-Demand from August 9, 2021 until December 17, 2021.
