Our digital forensics experts have scheduled an additional free workshop in September after the quick sell-out of previous online events.
This July, Arcanum Digital Forensics ran 4 free one-hour workshops specifically for Trading Standard professionals. The aim of the workshop was to increase knowledge and awareness of how digital evidence is identified and seized for cases.
With so many devices holding potential evidence, James Tucker, Arcanum Senior Digital Forensics Practitioner, explained what Arcanum Digital Forensics can examine and what could be recovered to assist in Trading Standards investigations.
Arcanum invited 150 contacts within Trading Standards departments across the UK, with 140 people securing tickets to the workshops. This resulted in a ‘sell-out’ within 24 hours.
Dianne Slack, a participant from the event said:
“I am the Tobacco Control Officer for the City of Wolverhampton Trading Standards Service. As such I inspect many retail properties looking for illicit tobacco and underage sales and on occasion have had to seize mobile phones, CCTV and Sat Navigation systems as evidence. My colleagues will wholeheartedly agree that I am a dinosaur when it comes to technology, but I do recognise the value of examining these items not just for intelligence but as evidence in legal proceedings.
I attended the Arcanum Digital Forensics Workshop for Trading Standards Professionals on the 14 July 2021 to increase my knowledge on seizing such items, and to avoid the possible loss of data. The workshop fully met my expectations, and the content was explained clearly and concisely by James. I particularly found the video example on how to seize a mobile phone excellent and could have listened to what James had to say for longer.
I knew Phill and James from previous work I had submitted, I enjoyed the workshop and feel that my confidence in seizing such items has increased as a result of attending it.”
Due to the popular demand of previous workshops, Arcanum have scheduled an additional session on the 8th of September 2021. Again, this will be an online event via Zoom.
Email invites will be sent out to our existing Trading Standards contacts very soon.
