Legal Concerns for Digital Evidence Responders 201: Search Warrants and Digital Evidence

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 provides information on obtaining and executing search warrants in cases involving digital evidence, with a focus on the similarities and differences between these cases and other search warrants. Topics covered include:

  • Establishing probable cause, particularity, scope, and nexus
  • The use of outside experts
  • Out-of-state warrants for remote evidence
  • The importance of corroborating online information with offline investigative work
