British Company Develops Easy-to-Use Computer Forensics Tool

July 22, 2009  | 

A new tool that lets frontline police officers detect illegal images
 and other potential evidence stored on computer devices is now being
 used by two British forces and being evaluated by two others.

SPEKTOR Forensic Intelligence allows an operator with just a few
 minutes' training to find, preserve, and protect digital data in an
 evidentially sound manner that complies with ACPO recommendations and 
satisfies all legal requirements for any subsequent criminal or civil 
court proceedings.

Developed by leading forensic computing consultancy Evidence Talks, the
 system has been specifically designed to help law enforcement officials
 such as police and border patrol officers quickly retrieve data from
 computers, hard drives, memory sticks, digital cameras, and other media
 such as CDs and DVDs for subsequent examination by skilled forensic 
analysts.

 By removing the need to have computer experts at the scene, it results
 in huge savings in fees and traveling expenses.

The powerful, portable forensic triage solution consists of the SPEKTOR
 Control Pod, which allows an officer to forensically wipe, verify, and
 configure reusable Collectors that store a copy of any potential
 evidence that may prove useful to an investigation.

 Officers can quickly inspect and preserve images, PDFs, documents,
 spreadsheets, browser histories, search records, e-mails, and Internet
 chat logs without interfering with or contaminating the evidence. They
 can even capture encrypted, password protected, and deleted files.

On Windows computers, SPEKTOR automatically extracts forensically useful
 data from the registry, including profile settings, details of
 previously-attached USB devices, recent file activity, network settings,
installed software, online storage details, auto-form details, and much
 more.

 Data on the Collectors cannot be viewed or accessed by unauthorized 
users.

Case study:

Fraud police raid commercial premises and the owner protests that taking 
away his computer would cost him business. He threatens to sue.
 Frontline officers use SPEKTOR to collect all the information they 
require and allow the man to retain his equipment. Collector device
 contains all the evidence the police need to mount a successful 
prosecution at a later date.

Evidence Talks managing director Andrew Sheldon says, "This solution was
 developed after long and detailed discussions with police officers and 
other members of the law enforcement community, and it delivers exactly
 what they wanted.

"
