In this program, attorney and information security consultant Scott Aurnou presents an overview of digital forensics, with an emphasis on computer and mobile device forensics and the importance they play in both criminal and civil cases (as well as internal investigations). Mr. Aurnou begins the presentation with a general introduction to the subject matter by talking about the various forms of electronic data and the devices on which they are stored. He then discusses the digital forensic process in litigation and the precautions parties must take when handling and extracting data. He concludes his presentation with suggestions on how companies can establish procedures in order to avoid costly errors and minimize risks when responding to a security incident. Mr. Aurnou’s clear delivery of the subject matter and use of relevant cases make this program valuable for attorneys counseling clients who are dealing with digital forensic discovery issues and for managing their own firm's electronic data.
