The investigation began after images consistent with child pornography were uploaded to a social media platform. A search warrant was executed at the residence and an on-scene forensic exam of all electronic media was completed by members of the State Police Computer Crime Unit. Using ADF Digital Evidence Investigator®, investigators discovered images and videos of sexual abuse of an under age child and were able to identify a resident of the household as the suspect. Specifically, investigators located thumbcache images that resulted in identifying a female child that was being sexually abused and identified the suspect.

The conference seeks to grow and expand the education of law enforcement officers, police investigators and prosecutors in an effort to promote best practices for investigating Internet Crimes Against Children.
This week, hundreds of cyber security and digital forensic experts gathered in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to participate in the Techno Security and Digital Forensics Conference. The event hosted at the Marriott Resort & Spa at Grande Dunes offered attendees the ability to receive Continuing Professional Education Credits (CPE) depending on their organization.
Last week, leaders from the military, special operations and industry gathered together in Tampa, Florida for the 2018 Special Operations Forces Industry Conference (SOFIC) and Exhibition. The event, sponsored by the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) emphasized the USSOCOM Commander's vision to "Win - Transform - People" and was joined by international military members from US partner nations.
ADF was delighted to sponsor certified forensic examiner training focused on Basic Computer Forensic Examiner (BCFE) training held by the International Association of Computer Investigative Specialists (IACIS) in Orlando, Florida. The event attracted hundreds of corporate security, university and law enforcement officers from around the United States, as well as various officials from the Department of Defense and federal agencies.
A long, long time ago in a galaxy far far away
(2006 to be exact and the galaxy was Maryland USA)
It was a period of innovation.
Computers, USBs, all kinds of devices ...
Some people were committing digital crimes
from their seemingly hidden bases in the digital world.
Digital forensic experts understand the importance of remembering to perform a RAM Capture on-scene so as to not leave valuable evidence behind. Capturing volatile data in a computer's memory dump enables investigators and examiners to do a full memory analysis and access data including:
There are many cases where time is critical in a police investigation. This is increasingly true in a world where digital evidence can be an essential element in capturing a suspect or solving a crime. Digital data can implicate or clear suspects and utilizing digital evidence to your investigative advantage can allow you to act quickly while on-scene.
Starting digital investigations while at the scene has become increasingly important in fluid crime situations such as terrorism threats, active shooter situations, gang activity or sex trafficking. Field forensic investigations (a.k.a. field triage) can also be useful in CyberTip investigations or any crime where a digital device may have photos, video, audio, or other data that could be useful in identifying suspects, victims or protecting evidence.
Today, ADF is announcing the release of new digital forensic software versions for our products:
- Digital Evidence InvestigatorⓇ (DEI) version 1.3.0
- Triage-InvestigatorⓇ version 4.3.0
- Triage-G2Ⓡ version 4.3.0
This April, ADF will sponsor The National Cyber Crime Conference in Massachusetts, hosted by the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office. The conference brings together police, prosecutors and forensic examiners from all 50 states, Washington DC, the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, for three days of training designed to help attendees face the challenges posed by digital evidence and technology in criminal investigations. International law enforcement attendees have come from Canada, Ireland, England as well as Trinidad and Tobago.
"In summary, I would say DEI is one of the more intuitive tools I've used, because it guides you through your investigation step by step and could easily be used without much training" ...Read the full 2018 Forensic Focus Review of ADF's Digital Evidence Investigator tool.

The majority of F3 members are involved in the analysis of computer-based evidence of various types, and some are also authors and manufacturers of forensic computing tools and solutions.
