A school district was accused of exposing students to inappropriate websites after an employee was reported for showing students certain websites.
The client needed expertise for the following :
To investigate the allegations fully and completely
To draw on experience of website filtering software and enabled features
To determine what artifacts get left behind by using search engines
Our iDS Forensic Team analyzed a number of computers, mobile devices and the school infrastructure/internet gateway.
The iDS Forensic and Investigative Team performed analysis and reported on the following:
That the installed monitoring software had been functioning properly
The internet artifacts left behind established that while certain sites had been search for/typed in, the software would not
allow those sites to be visited
The examination of a non-school owned mobile device showed that it contained visits to inappropriate websites
Our team was able to show that the alleged activity did occur, but that it occurred on a personally owned device that was not owned or controlled by the school district.
The suspect was arrested and convicted for this activity.
