Investigating Web 2.0 The rise of evidence on mobile devices
Mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets contain personal information such as call history, text messages, e-mails, digital photographs, videos, calendar items, address books, passwords and credit card numbers. They can be useful as sources of digital evidence to be examined when criminal activities occur. This seminar aims to share advanced knowledge and the exchange of experience and best practice between judges, prosecutors and lawyers in private practice who deal with criminal proceedings involving e-evidence on mobile devices.
- Technical issues (internet caches, proxy servers, encryption, deep/dark web, etc.)
- Legal implications of e-evidence (collection, evaluation and admissibility)
- The rise of evidence on mobile devices
- Insights into different national criminal justice systems
