Within the law enforcement and digital forensics communities, people will say, “What do they expect? It’s part of the job – they should be able to handle it.” However, technology has changed the type of evidence that is now processed in criminal cases – we now have more audio, video, and image evidence of the actual crime itself than ever before. In addition, almost every criminal investigation involves more than one form of digital evidence. In some cases, multimedia analysts need to enhance audio/video/image evidence in order to identify the actors or clarify the context of the situation, all of which may involve repeatedly viewing or hearing heinous acts (e.g., homicide, child sex abuse, torture).Research shows criminal justice occupations are associated with high work-related stress leading to psychological illness and high burnout rates. This presentation discussed the psychological well-being, job satisfaction, and coping mechanisms of digital and multimedia forensic analysts exposed to disturbing media. The overall goal was to better understand the well-being of digital and multimedia forensic analysts exposed to evidence from different types of criminal cases. The key takeaway – research shows the job is having a significant effect on their mental health, and we need to identify successful interventions to alleviate burnout and poor psychological well-being.
In many cases, memory analysis can provide access to data you can’t get through “dead-box” forensics alone and may be the only way to obtain evidence critical to solving your investigation. Malware investigations in particular can benefit significantly from memory analysis, but that is not the only type of investigation that Memory analysis can play a crucial role. This session will discuss how Magnet AXIOM’s integration of core plugins from the popular tool, Volatility, makes deep memory analysis more accessible to forensic examiners. Learn how to incorporate memory artifacts into a broader timeline together with artifacts from other data sources for a well-rounded investigation. In addition, we’ll explore the free tool MAGNET Process Capture to analyze memory from specific processes, providing a less fragmented output and better data recovery.
