Carolinas Chapter Meeting
Wednesday, December 04, 2019, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
Category: Chapter Meeting


The HTCIA Carolinas Chapter will hold its next meeting as a web-based event on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 from 1PM to 2PM EST. 

HTCIA was formed in response to the industry’s need to train and develop expertise in investigating high technology crimes.  By providing compelling training content through both physical and web-based chapter meetings, the Chapter strives to meet those objectives. We also hope that the convenience of web-based meetings encourages active participation by our members and attracts new members from both law enforcement and industry from across the region. 


Amber Schroader, CEO and Founder of Paraben Corporation,  will be presenting “Smartphones & the Apps that Rule Them.”  Smartphones are more than just messages and phone calls.  They are the Apps that rule their data. Understanding the processes of these devices and the data they contain can provide you greater insight into your suspects. As many users have moved to third-party Apps in an attempt to hide data from potential investigations, learning the process to turn over the data in these apps for information is critical. In a sea of millions of Apps it is important to learn how to find the App, and then view the data in a parsed and unparsed form.

Throughout the past two decades Ms. Schroader has been a driving force for innovation in digital forensics. Ms. Schroader has developed over two-dozen software programs designed for the purposes of recovering digital data from mobile phones, computer hard drives, email, and live monitoring services. Ms. Schroader has taught and designed the established protocols for the seizure and processing of digital evidence that have been used by numerous organizations throughout the world. Ms. Schroader has coined the concept of the “360-degree approach to digital forensics” as well as started the momentum and push to the “Forensics of Everything-FoE” with her focus to unique problems in digital evidence and solutions. Ms. Schroader has been a huge industry influence in pushing for a big-picture consideration of the digital evidence and the acquisition process and analysis techniques used. An accomplished curriculum developer and instructor, Ms. Schroader has written and taught numerous classes for this specialized field, as well as founded multiple certifications. Ms. Schroader continues support through book contributions and other industry speaking engagements.
