I’m responsible for the Department of Forensic Sciences, which has four divisions. There are CSIs of course, like in the movie shows, but they need a little bit more than one hour and a half to solve the cases.
Also the Division of Cybercrime, we develop knowledge competencies and infrastructure, not only for Geneva, but also for all the states for Western Switzerland, which is very exciting.
We have had EnCase for nearly two decades. You need a state police. We were the first one in Switzerland. So the concept of EnCase, the GUI, the training, the EnCE certification also was always a goal and a prerequisite for the people working in this division. One of the main subjects we deal with is chapter number three, of course, and cases used mainly for doing the research and trying to find back some evidence in those kinds of cases.
Also, for some encrypted data we use EnCase for those kinds of encrypted data, to try to find out some evidence. So the main part of this tool is to find evidence to solve crime and to find the people. Of course, I’m very excited for what’s going on in Switzerland right now. And this Regional Cybercrime Competence Centre is something very exciting. And the goal behind this is to put together forces, resources, people to fight for the same goal.
