Digital recording has been embraced by both law enforcement and the criminals they seek to apprehend. The corporate side of business has embraced digital audio and video recording to the point where there is no longer any expectation of privacy. With the advent of security digital systems, webcams, phone cameras, and audio/video everywhere in one’s daily life, it’s no wonder the Forensic Examiner is called on to render an opinion to questions regarding the authenticity of recordings, editing of recordings, “Who said what” and “Does the evidence actually reflect the event as it actually occurred”?
Today’s examiner must have an arsenal of tools at his/her disposal to be able to answer these questions to a reasonable degree of scientific certainty. This tutorial will discuss and provide tools of the trade, the realistic expectation of analysis (also known as The CSI Effect) famous cases (The Night Whisperer, John Gotti Jr.), and will include eight panel members from across the world who are internationally known for their expertise in these areas.
This seminar will also include before and after examples of forensic enhancement, digital editing analysis, encase data recovery of “erased files,” digital voice identification, and many other facets of this area.
Also discussed will be employment opportunities in the Forensic Field.
