Intended Audience: Accounting Educators and Practitioners Interested in Learning About Cyberforensics and the admissibility of various techniques in judicial and other proceedings.

Learning Objectives: Cyberforensics pertains to evidence found in computers, other electronic devices and certain crime scenes. The goal of cyberforensics is to examine digital or electronic data in a manner which complies with state and/or federal legal standards, including federal and state rules of evidence. For example, it is paramount that an adequate chain of custody of any digital evidence be maintained. Computer forensics may be used in both civil and criminal cases. Computer forensics investigations are usually conducted on static data rather than "live" systems. The presentation will cover various techniques including cross-drive analysis, live analysis, deleted files, steganography, and others with a focus on admissibility in judicial and other proceedings.
