Being prepared is crucial. Learning the steps you will need to walk through to produce the best possible results can save you hours of aggravation.

This speech will focus on a practical approach for collecting data from smartphones and other mobile devices. It will note the common pitfalls associated with finding the data and linking it back to the case at hand. A case scenario will be walked through to look for potential evidence followed by a focus on the methods to be used as well as how to add this capability to your team or for a checklist when these capabilities need to be outsourced.

She has been a major industry influence in pushing for a big-picture consideration of the digital evidence, the acquisition process, and the use of analysis techniques.
