Forensic Science in the Portable Digital Age

In partnership with InfraGard-Pittsburgh

Friday, March 11

Africa Room, Duquesne Union
Duquesne University

Smartphones and other mobile devices contain a wealth of evidence, potentially including years of communications, digital photos, search history and geo-location data. More information may be available in cell carriers' voice and data systems. The U.S. Supreme Court, in establishing a search warrant requirement, distinguished smartphones from more traditional sources of evidence, noting they "place vast quantities of personal information literally in the hands of individuals."
This program, featuring technology litigator David Ries of Clark Hill, Brett Creasy of computer forensic and e-discovery consultants bit-x-bit, and representatives of the FBI and the Software Engineering Institute's CERT Division, will explore the kinds of data stored on mobile devices and in cell carrier systems, how to forensically access it, the challenges of dealing with encryption, and legal standards for access, including warrants, court orders, subpoenas and consent.

Please note that this seminar will be offered both onsite and LIVE ONLINE for relevant professionals.

This program is approved by the Pennsylvania CLE Board for 3 hours of Substantive CLE credit.
