Computer Forensics -
Fascinating, but not quite what you've seen on TV


Harold Jones

Computer Forensic Specialist

Computers, the internet, and crime.

Workstation crimes and internet crimes.

What is computer forensics and how is it all very different?

How to prosecute criminals with computers.

How to protect yourself.

Computers were like cars -- they were great.  Then someone committed a crime
with them.  No matter how good, it seems everything can be misused - the
computer and the Internet being no exception.  There are crimes in which the
computer is non-essential to the commission of the crime but merely acts as
a record of information concerning the crime.  Then there are crimes in
which a computer is an essential element in the perpetration of the crime:
Internet identity theft, on-line child exploitation, and on-line fraud.

Thus the need for computer forensics: the application of computer
investigation and analysis techniques to discover, recover, analyze and
present computer based material in such a way that it is useable as evidence
in a court of law.  Computer forensic specialists discover and recover data
that resides in a computer system, including deleted, encrypted, and damaged
files.  Any or all of this information may useful during discovery,
depositions, or actual prosecutions but only if proper forensic techniques
are followed.

Mr. Harold Jones, a decorated 25-year police veteran, detective, private
investigator, seminar leader, and computer forensic specialist will speak on
computer forensics.   Sure, you've seen it on TV, but can they really solve
those crimes in 60 minutes (minus commercials, of course)?

Join us for the real story of computer forensics as it is practiced right
here in your own Miami Valley communities.
