Future of Preserving Digital Evidence
Tue, Jan 26, 2021 1:00pm-2:30pm Eastern
Duration: 90 Minutes

Digital forms of evidence, from cell phones to body-worn camera videos, each have brought new challenges towards convincing judges and juries that the digital evidence (as presented to the court) is an accurate representation of the original evidence. Also, the ease of copying and sharing computerized files complicates the protection of privacy rights, as well as the prevention of unauthorized modifications. Tracking the chain of custody becomes more complicated when files are stored in central databases accessible to many users.  

This webinar reviews the challenges of protecting the integrity of digital evidence, and the expectations that courts have about how the evidence can be shown to be faithful to the original creation. Legal requirements for protecting the privacy of witnesses and victims will also be described, and best practices for controlling the dissemination of digital evidence will be highlighted. 

New frameworks, such as zero trust architecture, offer ways to add confidence to the methods of preserving the integrity of digital evidence and technologies. Implementing these new measures can be helpful to agencies in meeting legal and regulatory requirements. The presentation will also include recommendations for principles that can be applied in the procurement process, as agencies acquire new systems that generate more digital evidence.
