Technology is so complex and innovative that understanding how technology can be used as an accessory to criminal activity is a specialist skill. Unfortunately, criminals take advantage of the intelligence available on technological devices such as computers and mobile phones, exploiting their sophistication to help them conduct a wide range of crimes. When abused, computers can play a prevalent part in drug offences, money laundering, fraud and many other types of serious crimes. When computers are used and seized for investigation it causes a huge increase in workload for the legal team involved.
This is why an IT forensic expert witness is brought in: to lessen the workload and provide valuable insight about how the computer, or any device, has been used. An IT forensic expert can also interrogate and analyse a computer’s hard drive or operating system to determine where it has been used and even who has used it. Cell site analysis is one of the methods employed by a cell site analysis expert witness to determine the geographical area of a phone when inbound or outbound calls are made. It can also be used to assess when text messages and downloads were made, who made the calls and whether the suspect was at the scene of the crime when it was committed. A cell site analysis is commonly used by law enforcement agencies to confirm or disprove alibis so they form a critical element of the legal process.
Cell Site Analysis is an innovative means of establishing the geographical location of a mobile phone when calls, text messages or files are sent and received. Evidence obtained through Cell Site Analysis can be used by mobile forensics to confirm or disprove alibis and help determine where the individual in question was when the crime occurred. Our cell site expert witness can provide independent and professional services in cell site survey, cell mapping and call sequencing, as well as offer detailed cell site analysis evidence reports and their expert opinions on a range of issues pertaining to IT forensics.
CCTV cameras are active at all times in public and are used by government organisations to monitor our behaviour and find out who is responsible for crimes. They operate in the majority of public spaces and are conspicuously and discreetly placed all over our cities to record our actions. CCTV evidence is used by police and prosecution services to unequivocally prove someone’s innocence or culpability. Our IT forensic expert witnesses are skilled video analysts who are adept at examining the pictorial evidence and using facial mapping techniques to determine who the person is in the CCTV footage, helping legal teams make sense of complex evidence.
As with computer systems, the use of mobile phones as accessories in crime is becoming increasingly common. An IT forensic expert witness can access and assess the data and information found on memory cards or hard drives. This data can include text messages, phone history and social media posts, which can be examined to provide a judgement on whether someone is innocent or guilty. Evidence found by an IT forensic is used by both the prosecution and defence team; our mobile phone forensics expert witnesses can help both parties make sense of IT forensics and accurately interpret the content presented.
