Legal Concerns for Digital Evidence Responders 301: Searching without a Warrant
Legal Concerns for Digital Evidence Responders provides a
legal background for first responders and investigators who encounter or work
with digital evidence. Topics include Fourth Amendment concerns, the importance
of getting digital devices into the hands of a forensics expert, recent case
law, and practical advice on obtaining and executing search warrants. The
modules function as companions to NW3C’s computer crimes classes and may be
required as online prerequisites for either instructor-led or online training.
Each module can be completed as a stand-alone online course or in combination
with the other six modules.
This module covers situations in which the Fourth Amendment does not apply and which
therefore do not require a search warrant. Topics covered include:
- Reasonable expectation of privacy in a digital context
- Private Searches
- "Reasonable" government searches
- Searches with consent
