Upcoming Webinar: Trust But Verify: Digital Artifact Edition

How to make sure you’re telling the whole truth using supporting evidence in an investigation.

Revealing the truth is our job as forensic analysts. Artifact parsing, in its efficiency, is helpful, but has the potential to steer us down the wrong path and can alter the course of investigations. Corroborating and validating evidentiary findings brings to light the real story behind each case.

By using supporting artifacts techniques, we can avoid misleading clues in investigations and be confident we are telling the entire timeline of what actually happened in specific incidents.

During this webinar, forensic experts will walk through two specific scenarios where a presumptive analysis may lead you in one direction or not provide the full picture, but a more conclusive analysis reveals the truth.

Join BlackBag’s Director of Training, Matt McFadden, and Forensic Engineer, Lexi Michaels, as they walk through these scenarios to show how digging past surface level evidence with artifact parsing can benefit investigations.
