ST. GEORGE, Utah — Known nationwide for developing techniques that rival those of CSI Miami, Fringe Division, the Dixie State University Computer Crime Institute will be the subject of the next installment in DSU’s weekly lecture series “Dixie Forum: A Window on the World.”
Dr. Gary Cantrell, assistant professor of digital forensics at DSU, and Joan Runs Through, assistant director and forensic examiner for CCI, will present about the institute from noon to 12:50 p.m. on Tuesday, April 5, at the Dunford Auditorium in the Browning Resource Center on the DSU campus.
Admission is free
Entering its sixth year, the Computer Crime Institute has grown from an idea to a national phenomenon. Filling a previously unmet need in the law enforcement community, DSU has developed cutting-edge digital Chip-Off forensic techniques.
The high-tech method of extracting and analyzing data stored on flash memory chips often allows the extraction of data from devices even if the devices are damaged or the data has been deleted.
Cantrell and Runs Through will discuss the joys and sorrows of extracting digital artifacts from mobile devices using physical processes. They will discuss the status of digital forensics in the world at large as well as the future of digital forensics as an academic field.
Dixie Forum is a weekly lecture series designed to introduce the St. George community and DSU students, faculty and staff to diverse ideas and personalities while widening their worldviews via a 50-minute presentation.
Next week, Dixie Forum will host Cliff Ricketts as he presents “Running Engines Off Sun, Hydrogen from Water, and Several Other Alternative Fuels” on April 12 in the Dunford Auditorium.
