Police Research and Education Network Seminar: Digital Forensics: Principles and Procedures

Corporate Hub and Lecture Theatre 402


Digital Forensics: Principles and Procedures

Philip Anderson, Computer Forensics, Northumbria University  

Digital evidence plays an integral role in all aspects of our modern day lives. Although strongly related to the field of cyber security, digital forensics concerns itself with the collection of evidence after a crime has taken place as opposed to the prevention of a crime.

As most criminals now leave a digital trail, digital evidence prominently features in many investigations.

Digital forensics is a rapidly evolving field and as such this seminar will provide an overview on the extraction, preservation and analysis of digital evidence obtained from different electronic devices in a legally acceptable manner.

Refreshments will be available in the Corporate Hub (Fourth Floor) at 5.00pm - 5.30pm and the lecture will take place at 5.30pm in Lecture Theatre 402.

The series will draw upon leading research expertise within Northumbria University. Each seminar will provide an opportunity for staff to present their research findings on key topics for contemporary policing, reflecting on the challenge of developing evidence based for police practice.

The seminars are free to attend. They will be informal and are designed to promote debate between academics and practitioners from the police and other relevant agencies..
