Course Description
In the current world of digital media, every user-created file should, by default, contain metadata. This metadata, or the lack of metadata, can be useful when investigating claims and can help provide leads and support interviews or EUO’s. Using real case examples and open-source intelligence techniques, we will learn how investigators locate and use metadata to assist with their claims. In the end, we will learn how to obtain, view, and document metadata found in photos and other files, such as Word, Excel, and PDF files, and how metadata can and can’t be used in civil and criminal investigations.
