Yaniv Schiff, Director of Digital Forensics at Forensicon, Inc., appeared as a guest lecturer at Valparaiso Law School in Valparaiso, Indiana. Mr. Schiff offered insight and first-hand knowledge to the students of Ms. Emily Janoski-Haehlen in her Technology in Law class.
Mr. Schiff lectured on the e-discovery process and computer forensics including data recovery, ESI and potential sources of relevant electronic information. He presented information and “war” stories from his over 9 years of work as a digital forensics expert. The students seemed to be interested in the topics covered, especially when it came to cell phone and mobile device forensics and examining social media. Schiff tried not to scare the students too much with his stories about how much information is readily available about a person once an examiner starts digging through Facebook, Instagram, and their personal computers.
Forensicon believes that educating future (and current) attorneys is crucial in this day and age when it comes to e-discovery and digital forensics. The federal judges agree, specifically the Honorable Judge Peck of the S.D.N.Y who recently reminded participants at LegalTech New York 2015 that it is their job to educate themselves, their clients, and sometimes their judges, on the technology issues they face during discovery.
