Brief Overview: The Internet of Things refers to physical devices having the capability to connect to the Internet to send and receive signals and data. As technology evolves into every facet of our daily lives, it is important that MDT's develop an understanding of what devices are IoT capable and potentially what information may be recoverable to assist in investigations, prosecutions or adjudications. Participants will learn what devices are currently IoT, emerging technology for IoT, and ways to detect what may be contained on IoT devices. Issues of search and seizure for IoT devices will also be discussed.
