Podcast Ep 81 Recap: How MSAB Is Managing The Digital Forensics Challenges Of Frontline Policing

Alan Platt, Professional Services Consultant at MSAB, discusses his experience as a former UK police officer working in digital forensics. He talks about the different levels of digital forensics capabilities within police forces and how MSAB products like XAMN and XEC Director are used by frontline officers versus lab analysts.

The discussion covers how MSAB partners with law enforcement to develop custom workflows for mobile device acquisitions that facilitate ISO compliance. Alan explains MSAB’s managed service offering, where approved MSAB staff can remotely access a customer’s XEC Director server to assist with software updates and troubleshooting. He emphasizes the strict data segregation policies enforced by customers to prevent MSAB from accessing any sensitive case data.

Looking ahead, Alan mentions MSAB’s new CEO and hints at some exciting developments coming down the pipeline. He spotlights recent enhancements to XEC Director’s speed and database functionality for managing large estates of networked Kiosks. Alan also plugs the new XEC Director training he created to help users fully leverage the platform’s capabilities.
