Digital evidence in one form or another is in the news daily. Hackers, predators, bullies, and crooks are just some of the folks that can be identified, tracked, and or convicted using digital forensic techniques. Many people immediately associate it with child pornography and identity theft. In reality, it is so much more. Any criminal case, regardless of the charge, could contain digital evidence. Beyond criminal litigation, digital forensics is used in civil cases, the military and intelligence communities, and in administrative actions.
The AIDE DFWG is comprised of forensic science professionals. It is our obligation to assist the trier of fact as they evaluate and seek to understand digital evidence presented in a court of law. The AIDE Digital Forensics Working Group is committed to furthering the knowledge and skills of both professionals and students in our field. The DFWG supports our colleagues in our sister working groups.
