Magnet Forensics is proud to announce that The Auxtera Project is now open to volunteer applications!
The Auxtera Project was created as a charitable platform to get digital forensic software tools and services to those in need (the word Auxtera was created as part of this project to describe a cadre of volunteers bound by the pursuit of justice.) We want to be able to help in the pursuit of justice and the safety of children and other vulnerable populations by organizing services that are voluntarily provided by digital forensic professionals to qualified beneficiaries.
At Magnet Forensics, we’ll be doing our part by not only donating software to agencies, charities, and not-for-profits, but we’ll have members of the Magnet Forensics team donating their time to help perform DFIR investigations for those who cannot perform those investigations for themselves. Of course, there are many worthy recipients of these services, and we want to build up the volunteer pool to that we can not only attend to those needs, but not burden those who are volunteering their time.
“We welcome members of the digital forensics community to volunteer their time and expertise alongside the team at Magnet Forensics in pursuit of justice for all citizens, regardless of their socio-economic status,” says Magnet Forensics Founder & CTO, Jad Saliba. “Together, we can contribute towards a more just society and help protect the victims of crimes such as human trafficking and child sexual exploitation online.”
If you’re interested in taking part (or just want to learn more), head over to www.theauxteraproject.com where you will find volunteer info, FAQs and more. We’ll announce more details on beneficiaries of The Auxtera Project this winter, so stayed tuned!
