Presenting LOCARD at the fourteenth Symposium on Electronic Crime Research (eCrime 2019) in Pittsburgh!

Last 13-15 November, the eCrime 2019 looked at the operational challenges and development of common resources and best practices for first responders and forensic professionals. The conference dived into current research projects and future areas of interest for cybercrime investigations, forensic techniques and infrastructure defense, including our peer-reviewed cybercrime published paper program with the IEEE-SA.

Amazing conference organised by APWG.eu in Barcelona where Pablo López-Aguilar presented our LOCARD Project and highlighted the objective to standardise forensic procedures across the EU Member States. Several Institutions and Law Enforcement Agencies such as the Council of Europe, Mossos d'Esquadra, Policia NacionalErtzaintza or the National Police of Japan (JC3) met together to discuss the latest cybercrime trends.


Last September 21st, Tom Dasaklis presented our project at the 4th South-East Europe Design Automation, Computer Engineering, Computer Networks and Social Media Conference at the University of Piraeus, Greece.

Tom highlighted the need to standardise forensics procedures as a crucial step to produce high quality reports and explained the Directive 2014/41 and the European Investigation Order (EIO) as an intrument to replace the existing legal framework to the gathering and transfer of evidence between the member states.

The LOCARD_EU project will innovate in key areas such as mobile forensics, cloud forensics, copyright infringement, unification of digital forensics procedures and blockchain. All these topics have been highlighted in the presentation made by Pablo López-Aguilar, from APWG.eu during the three-days IISA 2019 conference in Patras, Greece.

Standardise the process used in the preparation and generation of digital forensic reports is a crucial step towards producing high quality reports. It will encourage digital forensic best practices and facilitate sharing and admissibility of reports across jurisdictions.
