hidden in your data using the FMS Advanced Systems Group’s Sentinel Visualizer. Introducing the capabilities of Social Network Analysis, this software system provides the ability to see and analyze complex relationships existing within data through 2D and 3D graphic models. Using Sentinel Visualizer, data involving people can be analyzed and manipulated to determine key relationships, such as who talks to whom, and who is related to whom. Entities and events can be depicted visually so the user can see their timing and create connections between seemingly unrelated information and relationships. There are also geospatial tools to map and compare locations. To learn more, go to:


Extract data from cell phones

using the Universal Forensic Extraction Device (UFED) from Cellebrite USA. The UFED is a portable, stand-alone solution for the extraction of critical data such as phonebook, pictures, videos, text messages, call logs, ESN, and IMEI information from more than 1,200 models of handsets sold worldwide. In fact, the system supports 95 percent of all cellular phones in the market today, including smartphones and PDA devices—and works with all wireless service providers in the United States. Data extracted in the field can be saved onto a removable SD card or USB flash drive using a strictly “read-only” process, ensuring the source device is not modified in any way.
