Around the world, adults, teens, and children are being bought and sold like modern slaves. Modern slavery involves the exploitation of an individual for another person’s personal or commercial gain.
The battlefield has extended into the digital realm in today's technological era. The military uses digital forensic software to address cyber threats and adapt to changing intelligence and counterintelligence operations. This powerful tool has become indispensable in safeguarding national security, uncovering threats, and ensuring the success of military operations.
A recent news story has highlighted the recent collaboration between the UK and the US to combat the surge in AI-generated child sexual abuse images. A joint commitment was established by Home Secretary Suella Braverman and US Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to foster a global approach to child exploitation images.
While traditional methods of law enforcement and community vigilance remain crucial, the integration of technology into crime prevention strategies has revolutionized safety and crime detection. Law enforcement agencies are beginning to use crime prevention approaches to keep their communities safe.
Digital forensic software developers need to keep up with new advancements. Investigators need digital forensic tools to keep up with current and future technology. Forensic investigators face the challenge of evolving threats and increasing data volumes.
The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to speed up corporate forensics investigations is becoming a popular way for businesses to quickly and accurately gather evidence.
In today's rapidly evolving global landscape, military intelligence is more critical than ever.
Artificial intelligence is the simulation of human intelligence processes by computer systems. AI systems are given vast amounts of training data that will be analyzed for correlations and patterns . Once the AI system analyzes these patterns it can make predictions about future states. Machine learning computer algorithms aid AI in learning to work with a large amount of data. Machine learning data and algorithms will continue to gradually improve their accuracy over time. AI systems that use machine learning take data quickly to produce actionable information. It can trace relationships between data points that may be too complex for the human mind to identify.
Suspect Technologies provides an AI platform to help law enforcement agencies accelerate and enhance their ability to protect, investigate, alert and report.
As an ADF Partner, Suspect Technologies brings an additional power of analysis to ADF's suite of triage and digital forensic software to support face recognition for age detection which is used to help speed child exploitation investigations.
Even though Digital Forensics has expanded its capabilities and use-cases since its inception, it is constantly evolving and you need to be prepared for the changes coming. New features on computers and smartphones are causing existing digital forensics features to be outdated and unreliable when investigating. New crimes are being committed and the tools in existence are not capable of collecting and processing that sort of evidence yet. But not to worry, there are many companies out there researching tools to handle investigations in critical areas of development. Here are 5 key areas you want to make sure your team has the most up-to-date technology and the most experienced training.
The Global Forensic and Justice Center hosted a panel on The Value of Digital Evidence in Combatting Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking. The panelists included:
- Alexandria Wong, Digital Media (DOMEX) Trainer with the Global Forensic and Justice Center and FIU
- Sondra Skelaney, Gender Violence Prevention Program Coordinator with CASE and FIU
- Ailsa Slack, Director of Customer Success of ADF Solutions.
The panel focused on the role of technology, forensics, and digital evidence and revolved around four central questions which are highlighted below along with the key points discussed by the panel of subject matter experts.
Crimes against children investigations can lead CSAM investigators to have to review thousands or even tens of thousands of images. Investigators need tools to help them find relevant evidence quickly.
Intelligence gathering is a discipline that's on a different playing field than your typical law enforcement search warrant or forensic triage examination. ADF's Triage-G2 and Triage-G2 PRO enable military field operatives to rapidly collect and exploit captured equipment, media and documents in theaters of operation around the world and reduce time on target for:
Digital Forensic Investigators and Examiners need to be able to find evidence quickly and one of the ways that ADF provides this capability is using PhotDNA.
