Reston, VA - ADF Solutions, Inc. (ADF Solutions), a global leader in digital forensic software, has announced a strategic partnership with the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) to combat wildlife trafficking in Africa. This collaboration aims to leverage cutting-edge technology and forensic expertise to enhance efforts to combat illegal wildlife trade and protect endangered species.
Getting the "big picture" of a case is challenging when digital forensic data is spread across different disparate evidence types or a large of media sources. Experts from several leading forensic companies shared best practices for collecting, analyzing, and reporting on evidence from multiple mobile phones, a drone, and several vehicles used in a fictional homicide investigation related to suspected fentanyl trafficking. The speakers were:
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.
With an ever-increasing number of adults owning a smartphone, it is no wonder that more and more crimes now commonly require mobile device evidence collection and analysis. The need for digital forensics tools is increasing around the world. The ultimate field forensics for the front line solution for police, sheriffs, school resource officers, field agents, and investigators. Connect a suspect device via a USB port to quickly collect evidence and perform an advanced logical acquisition (multi-protocol data transfer).
Are you ready for a big one? Anticipating what your evidence collection needs will be while you are on-scene includes trying to ascertain how many electronic devices you will encounter. ADF makes it easy for you to be prepared.
Anyone who is charged with a "knock and talk" or executing a search warrant knows that the ability to overcome and adapt on-scene is vital to a successful outcome. This is what drove ADF to empower investigators to be able to create a digital evidence Collect
ion Key (CKY).
Document and Media Exploitation (DOMEX) requirements cover a wide range of objectives, goals, and users. This includes digital forensics, rapid assessment (or forensic triage) of digital data and devices, collection of data on devices to bagging and tagging of devices.
Today’s smartphones, tablets, and computers are faster, smarter, and capable of holding more and more data than ever before. They offer more storage and the ability to connect to the cloud and to Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
Faced with more and more data, more and more police forces are adopting forensic triage methodologies to handle digital evicence on-scene, in the lab, or both in the field and lab.
Mobile Device Investigator (MDI) is the leading digital forensic triage tool for iOS and Android devices. In this short "How To" video, ADF's digital forensic specialist and trainer, Rich Frawley, will show you how to create a Search Profile with MDI.
ADF's digital forensic team will be participating in the First Forensic Forum (F3) annual conference and training workshop. The 19th annual event will take place November 12-14, 2019 in Birmingham, United Kingdom.
Digital Evidence Investigator PRO enables front-line field investigators to quickly create an iOS forensic backup of an iOS mobile device on-scene or back in the lab. In this short video, ADF Digital Forensic Training Manager, Rich Frawley, will show you how to easily backup an iOS device with DEI PRO.

Front line investigators and digital forensic examiners are encountering an ever increasing number of images in almost every investigation they perform. This exponential growth in the volume of images can challenge investigators searching for illicit online activity, Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM), extremist propaganda, or other types of image content.
In this short video, ADF digital forensic specialist, Rich Frawley, demonstrates ADF's digital forensic image recognition and classification capabilities.
Technology has become more powerful and portable, allowing a more significant amount of information to be created, stored, and accessed. This shift in the information technology landscape (mobile, cloud, IoT, etc.) has made the collection and analysis of digital evidence a critical factor in investigating and solving virtually all types of crimes.
There are serious Internet related crimes, that need to be investigated quickly, child exploitation related offenses for instance. For example, in the United Kingdom, the National Crime Agency recently estimated that about 140,000 out of nearly 3 million registered dark web accounts registered on child abuse sites are UK-based.
