For digital investigators it delivers an intuitive package which is continually updated and arms police, corporate and legal investigations with the weapons to combat increasingly tech-savvy miscreants.

The collaboration has combined the digital forensics skillset of Evidence Talks, described by Neil Beet, Managing Director of Blue Lights Digital as one of the leading exponents of digital computer triage in the world’, with the operational experience of his own team, recruited from policing and technology backgrounds.

The app delivery method is accessible 24/7 and concentrates on simple, precise procedures, enhanced by the use of rich 3D models and graphics.

“As police officers”, says Beet “our team had practical experience of using Evidence Talks technology and believe it’s the right system for the job.”

Andrew Sheldon, Chief Technical Officer at Evidence Talks, says that there is a significant skills deficit across the public sector when it comes to dealing with computer, cyber and digital crime and that this initiative is a significant step forward in putting matters to rights.

“We have been impressed with the commitment that Blue Lights Digital has shown both to supporting the police and to public education about digital security”, he comments, “for example, in addition to our collaboration, there are modules in Discovery offering free advice to the public about how to better protect against cyber crime and how to securely configure mobile devices and social networks which will help to keep people secure and safe.”

The Discovery app is freely available, can be accessed online and downloaded from the IOS App Store and the Google Play Store. Users can then complete training and access investigation material on their preferred platform. For law enforcement and enterprise clients, progress and feedback can be collated centrally in the learning management system which is accessible by trainers, managers or administrators. For continuous professional development the system offers an effective education medium that is available when and where it is needed most.
