Event Details:
When dealing with digital forensics the focus is often on what is there. Although this is an important starting point the more astute analyst will then ask: how did it get there?; when did it get there?; did anyone know that it was there?

These three supplementary questions when linked with the first provide the four big questions that need to be answered. In a criminal case the very high hurdle of ‘beyond reasonable doubt’ must be surmounted, but even in civil cases where ‘balance of probability reigns, the answers to these questions may be difficult to quantify. This session will examine each question in turn and illustrate how proving the ‘when’ may be the key to success, or failure in proving a case.
