Activity Timeline Filter

Written by Alisha Cales

    In just a second everything can change for some people. In car accidents what a driver was doing becomes imperative. Was that driver distracted? Were they on their smartphone? According to TeenSafe.com 80% of car crashes are attributed to a driver being distracted or not paying attention. Today the DMV estimates that 9 people per day die in distracted driving accidents. 14% of distracted driving accidents are due to the driver doing something on their mobile device. So, how can law enforcement and the legal community deal with this new epidemic?

Paraben’s Activity Timeline Filter is a new function in the E3 Platform version 2.0. This new functionality is featured in a webinar on Paraben’s YouTube channel ParabenForensics and in their blog at www.forensic-impact.com. You can see the details of what is being accessed on a device at a moment of time. “We designed this feature for the increasing number of cases that are being done by crash scene investigators and digital forensics where the two worlds are colliding.” Commented Amber Schroader, CEO & Founder at Paraben “We aided in a variety of these cases in the past year and felt it was time to be able to make this functionality more available to the larger group. We map all the data down to the second so you know exactly what was happening in that moment of time in an accident.” The data doesn’t stop there as mention to other data such as Fitbit information can also aid in a vehicle investigation based on some of the specialized meta-data that is captured such as location and speed. Ms. Schroader continued and mentioned that some of the same functionality has value in other investigations such as murder investigations, breach investigations, and insider threat where knowing about activities in a single moment can give you the key pieces of data to continue in an investigation.

This new functionality is the first of its kind in the DFIR arena and is further enhanced with the mobile triage functionality that is also available in the E3 Platform version 2.0. For additional information or to setup a demonstration of this functionality please reach out to Paraben at forensics@3.138.236.108.
