Next talk: Forensics & Digital Data with Stuart Hutchinson

Please join us on Tuesday 29th April at Worthing Coworking for our next talk:

Digital forensics is based on the simple assumption that data does not lie. Whether it is civil or criminal in nature nowadays investigations face an ever-increasing amount of digital evidence that must be efficiently and effectively collected, preserved, and analysed to uncover the truth.

We will discuss what is and isn’t possible in terms of data recovery and forensic analysis, drawing on real life case studies we will examine how digital forensics has assisted in the successful prosecution in relation to number of significant counter terrorism investigations.
