Cellebrite Initiative Addresses Growing Challenge in Preparing Trial Witness Testimonies on Mobile Evidence Announced During National Cyber Crime Conference, New Resources on Mobile Evidence Extraction and Analysis Provide Toolkit for U.S. Prosecutors and Law Enforcement
PARSIPPANY, N.J., April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cellebrite, the leading developer and provider of mobile data forensic solutions, announced today new resources designed to address the challenges prosecutors face as they prepare witness testimonies involving mobile forensic evidence. Released during the National Cyber Crime Conference, these new resources will serve as a much-needed toolkit for prosecutors as they prepare investigators and digital evidence forensic examiners to be trial witnesses.
Due to the prevalence of cell phone usage among consumers, mobile data evidence is now more critical than ever in criminal investigations and trials. However, judges, juries and sometimes attorneys themselves have difficulty understanding, or have misperceptions about, the nature of mobile devices, digital evidence and/or digital forensics.
Therefore, attorneys must be ready to meet legal challenges to mobile forensic evidence's admissibility as scientific evidence. This includes preparing trial witness testimonies on mobile data extraction, preservation, and analysis processes, as well as addressing specific tests based on their state's Daubert or Frye standards. To address the pressing need for education in the market, Cellebrite's latest resources offer attorneys, law enforcement officials and forensic examiners supplemental tools and knowledge to properly tackle these key issues.
As part of this initiative, Cellebrite offers the following resources:
- Mock Trial: "Admissibility of Digital Evidence" – To take place during the Mass. National Cybercrime Conference on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at 2:00 pm ET
- White Paper: "Preparing Testimony about Cellebrite UFED in a Daubert of Frye Hearing"
- White Paper: "What Happens When You Press that Button? Explaining Cellebrite UFED Data Extraction Processes"
"These new resources are supplemental to the standardized certification training that we recommend all examiners to take," said Jim Grady, CEO, Cellebrite USA. "This Mock Trial and its complementary white papers will help prosecutors to shore up what examiners learn through training, and more effectively address any challenges to the admissibility of their mobile device evidence at trial."
