ATC Offers Free Peer-to-Peer and Macintosh Forensics Training for U.S. State and Local Law Enforcement
ITHACA, N.Y., Sept. 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — With a grant from the National Institute of Justice, ATC-NY is bringing P2P Forensics and Macintosh Forensics Training to federal, state and local law enforcement at no cost to participants. Upcoming sites include Fort Collins, CO – September 15; Portland, ME – October 18; and Fort Worth, TX – November 1, 2.
In addition to general training in P2P Forensics and Macintosh Forensics, the following forensic tools are provided to participants at no charge:
- P2P Marshal(TM): a tool which automatically detects, extracts and analyzes P2P evidence on a hard drive
- Mac Marshal(TM): a tool which analyzes Mac OS X file system images
P2P Marshal and Mac Marshal perform their tasks in a forensically sound way and maintain an audit trail. Results are presented in an easily readable form on screen and reports can be produced in CSV, RTF, PDF and HTML formats.
News about updates to ATC-NY’s Cyber Marshal products and scheduled training are also available through Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/CyberMarshal.
P2P Marshal and Mac Marshal are currently being used by local, state, federal and international law enforcement to investigate cyber crimes. Without automated tools, a forensic investigator’s job to find evidence of illegal file sharing and distribution is manually intensive and time consuming. These forensic tools greatly help investigators reduce the time required for the analysis process. These tools are also useful to private corporations for compliance checking. For example, a company that prohibits peer-to-peer software on its corporate systems could use P2P Marshal to confirm such compliance.
