Free Webinar: Balancing the Needs of IT and Video-related Investigations

Dash cam, drone camera, and body worn camera.

There is no denying it: video is everywhere and it plays a critical role in almost every investigation. But how are your investigators accessing all of the challenging proprietary video files that make up most visual evidence? Officers need to quickly and accurately play video evidence. So now is the time to build a solution that protects the security of your network and devices without impeding the integrity of your casework.

Join us Thursday, October 25, 2018, at 1:00 pm EST for a free webinar exploring the video evidence issues law enforcement agencies are faced with. There are challenges to working with video evidence that must be addressed when choosing the best solution for your department or agency. Downloading unknown and risky ‘free’ players, exposes an agency network to potential threats, including malware, viruses, and bloatware. You need a tool that can process hundreds of file types quickly without putting your infrastructure at risk. The key is finding a solution that strikes a balance between the needs of investigators and the infrastructure security standards that keep your IT team up at night.

Some of the issues that will be addressed on the webinar:

  • An overview of common security/integrity issues that arise from investigators installing video players and codecs.
  • An understanding of the challenges Investigators are currently struggling with related to video evidence.
  • Exploring an alternative to downloading proprietary players and codecs that create a potential entry point for malware and/or viruses on to your network.
  • Scalable and safe solutions for all agency personnel interacting with video evidence.
