Quality Management System Standards In Forensics: An Executive Overview

Monday, January 20, 2020 (12:29:33)
by Tim Alcock, Qualimetric

This presentation is designed to give an executive overview of the Quality Management System standards and guidelines applicable to organisations providing forensic science services to the Criminal Justice System in the UK.

Organisations can achieve independent recognition to these standards via an accreditation process which confirms compliance. This is generally voluntary, but in the UK, whilst not yet mandated in law, the Forensic Science Regulator has required that Forensic units are accredited to relevant International standards (ie ISO/IEC 17025, 17020).

As the standards mentioned above were not specifically written for forensics applications, supplemental documents have also been published (such as ILAC G-19) and in the UK, the FSR Codes criteria of Practice and Conduct and associated documents as well as specific accreditation body requirements. This presentation provides an overview of the application and relationship between these documents.

Forensic Source Identification Using JPEG Image Headers: The Case Of Smartphones

Thursday, January 16, 2020 (10:53:36)
Patrick Mullan shares his research at DFRWS EU 2019.

Patrick: Hello, I am Patrick. I would like to introduce you to our recent research on forensic source identification using JPEG image headers. So the idea is to identify the source of the image — so which device took the image — with a focus on smartphones, particularly Apple devices.

So why is this interesting? It’s one goal of multimedia security; it’s often called reconstruction of provenance, where provenance means to find something out about the background of the image: the history of the image. Like, was it processed with some software; which path did the picture take, or was it distributed over, until it reached a certain point; and finally, and that’s what we are looking into today, to identify the source of the multimedia content.

So in this scene on the right, the question is, which of the devices took the picture on the right?

Interview With Jad Saliba, Founder & CTO, Magnet Forensics

Tuesday, January 14, 2020 (15:24:41)
Jad, tell us a bit about OUTRIDER and how it came about?

We talk to officials in law enforcement from a variety of different backgrounds and the one constant for us is trying to find ways to help them do the important work they do. In the case of OUTRIDER, I had been speaking with police and parole officers who were looking for quick and easy ways to tell if their parolees — often child predators — were at risk of reoffending. They needed a way to be able to tell if they had been accessing illicit materials, and fast. We’ve had a triage tool for many years now but have been looking for the right time to re-imagine how triage tools work and build something new.

We took that away and built OUTRIDER — a solution that not only helps them scan devices with lightning speed, but is easy enough for all levels of technical proficiency.
