Computer Forensics & Social Site Investigations
Jerry Grant

 

Our computers hold a vast amount of information about us and the Internet has changed the way people share that information about their lives. With the invention of tablets, these devices and the Internet are becoming part of our everyday activities. Information can remain for years even if you think you deleted it. Social sites are an electronic diary with little concern for privacy.

 

Come see an explanation and demonstration on many of the unknown things that computers are doing behind the scenes, and how a forensic examiner can extract and analyze that information for use in court as well as a live demonstration of what social site information can be easily accessed and how to obtain it.

 

3:00pm – 4:15pm
