Dr. Rebecca Mercuri of Notable Software

Topic:

Digital Forensics at the Intersection of Public Policy and Civil Rights

Abstract:
Digital forensics is a rapidly expanding field where practitioners apply scientific techniques in order to investigate and draw conclusions about evidence, with the goal of presenting findings in courtroom settings. The manner in which the forensics expert is required to perform their work is greatly influenced by prior court rulings and government laws, both recent and older ones dating back to the Nation's founding. Some public policy and civil rights issues related to computers and digital data will be explored using examples from the speaker's casework, as well as newsworthy current events.
