Key topics

  • Technical issues (internet caches, proxy servers, encryption, deep/dark web, etc.)
  • Legal issues (evaluation of the search results, reliability and credibility of authentication, search across jurisdictions)
  • Presenting internet searches in court: prosecution and defence perspectives
  • Procedural issues and jurisdictional conflicts
  • Remote investigations
