Warwickshire, United Kingdom (PressExposure) November 09, 2009 -- CCL-Forensics, one of the UK's most high-profile computer forensics companies, will be sharing knowledge and research with police forces from across the UK, at a high-profile forensic event this week.
High-tech crime officers will be converging at the F3 (First Forensic Forum) event at Tortworth Court in Gloucestershire from 10th-12th November 2009 to see developments in the computer forensics and mobile phone forensic industries.
Computer forensics is the process of investigating and interrogating computers to find evidence of their misuse, mainly in criminal cases. As computers continue to develop in complexity, it is important that computer forensics practitioners stay up-to-date with the latest tools and techniques involved in analysing them.
Delegates at the F3 conference can meet highly experienced analysts from CCL-Forensics to discuss recent advancements made by the company's dedicated research and development department. This includes not only computer forensics, but also techniques involved in the analysis of mobile phones and satellite navigation devices.
CCL-Forensics will be demonstrating its research to delegates at the event to share best practice with police officers from across the UK, in particular its work with satnav and in-car satellite navigation units. As the ownership of these complex devices increases, so does the likelihood of them being used in criminal activity.
Satellite navigation units can hold a large amount of data, including user-entered co-ordinates, GPS data and user history, which can provide vital evidence in gaining a conviction.
In addition to computer forensics, the company will be showcasing research and development in mobile phone forensics including techniques to retrieve an increasing amount of data from the growing range of mobile phones on the market. This includes, often vital, deleted information.
The company has also recently enhanced its cell site analysis department, to locate mobile phones from call data records provided by the network operator, and will be demonstrating this new capability at the event.
Marketing Manager for CCL-Forensics, Andy Holmes, says "This is an excellent event to meet some of the law enforcement agencies with whom CCL-Forensics already provides computer forensics services, as well as sharing industry developments with a wider audience.
We have been carrying out a lot of research in the fields of computer forensics, mobile phone forensics, and in other industry sectors like satellite navigation devices which are regularly used in criminal activity.
CCL-Forensics sees itself very much as a complement to police high-tech crime units, and can offer expertise on demand. We look forward to this popular event and to meeting our existing and potential clients."
CCL-Forensics will be exhibiting on Stand 1 at the event, which is open to forensics practitioners and law enforcement agencies. Entry is by invitation only.
