Digital Forensics Overview
In today’s technologically advanced world, any crime scene can potentially harbor digital evidence: information stored in digital form that may be of evidentiary value in a criminal investigation. Today more than ever before, the identification, collection and preservation of digital evidence are critical skills in crime scene processing and require forensically sound methodologies.
AAAF uses the U.S. Department of Defense Computer Investigation Training Program (DCITP) as a model for its Digital Evidence curriculum. Using the DCITP model, AAAF has established one of the few comprehensive Digital Evidence training programs and state-of-the-art computer forensics teaching laboratories in the nation. AAAF’s Digital Evidence training curriculum provides training in three areas: incident response, hardware forensics and network forensics, as well as, a full range of related courses in such areas as electronic forensics (surveillance devices and video), presentation of forensic evidence in court, and quality assurance in forensic investigations.
