How FORLAB reports conclusions of a forensic analysis
When we are asked to conduct an analysis on a digital document (e.g., digital image, video sequence, audio track), we take into account all the aspects concerning the whole life-cycle of such digital contents, starting from their acquisition and passing through various processing steps they may undergo. We digitally investigate the content following scientific methodologies (ISO/IEC 27037-27041-27042; SWGIT and SWGDE Guidelines; ENFSI Guidelines) and applying cutting-edge technologies. We then put into relation the different results achieved from each step of the analysis, in order to produce more complete, accurate and robust conclusions (see the paper for more info). The provided conclusions are reported according to the ENFSI Guideline for evaluative reporting in Forensic Science. The reported conclusions are based on the information and material made available to us at the time of the analysis: if any aspect of the case changes, or additional data become available, then conclusions may be updated in the light of such changes.
