Ewan Stewart – Police Scotland Cybercrime (North)
In this talk I will introduce Computer Forensics and speak about the part it plays in criminal investigations in Scotland. If possible I will demonstrate some of the software and techniques that are used to recover and process evidential data from storage media.
Ewan Stewart – Forensic Computer Analyst, Police Scotland Cybercrime (North). I graduated from RGU in 2006 with a BSc in Computing for Internet and Multimedia. I have worked in my current role for almost five years, having migrated from computer support roles.
I work in Aberdeen Police HQ, conducting digital forensic examinations of computers, as well as related devices. We can investigate any criminal offence, where evidence is suspected to be held on a device, in digital form. The majority of our investigations relate to indecent images of children, however we often investigate other major crimes such as murder, organised crime, extortion/cyber-bullying and fraud.
