Cybercrime is a huge issue for online retailers
In 2021, cybercrime is becoming an increasingly significant problem for online retailers. With 7 out of 10 people shopping online, it’s clear to see why.
The Doha Declaration was first issued in March of this year. Handling of digital evidence is a specific resource for professors in this topic.
Tamper-evident packaging has been a highly successful way to reduce the risk of criminals tampering with products before they arrive on the customer’s doorstep. It is a strong and reliable deterrent to would-be criminals, because it is difficult to get into and provides buyers with confidence that their purchases are secure.
Even once at the property, a package using tamper-evident technology will indicate any attempt to tamper with the contents. This plays a substantial role in legal proceedings as evidence can be placed in a tamper evident container which will indicate any attempt to adulterate the contents of the packaging.
Online retailers protect your data with SSL
Online retailers are committed to protecting your data and use SSL certificates to help keep you safe. This is because SSL certificates encrypt data between your browser and the retailer’s server, so only you and the retailer can read sensitive information, such as credit card numbers. This greatly reduces online crime when purchasing, it however does not address the supply chain nor cash handling aspect of e-commerce, or food handling / storage.
Tamper Evident Packaging for e-commerce products has a number of benefits to offer you and your business. But how do you know if it’s right for you?
Tamper evident packaging is becoming more and more popular in the world of e-commerce. This type of packaging offers benefits to both you and your business.
With the increase in online shopping, it is becoming more difficult to prevent customers from tampering with goods before they are delivered to their homes. Tamper evident packaging is a solution that not only prevents potential damage but also deters shoplifters and thieves. Tamper evident packaging is also environmentally friendly as it can be recycled or disposed of without damaging the environment.
Tamper evident packaging is a form of packaging that has been designed explicitly for shipping goods. Normal shrink wrap is not tamper-evident so it does not work so well in the e-commerce world. This type of packaging can offer many benefits to consumers and merchants alike, such as providing a sense of security for the consumer as well as providing proof that the product was not altered or damaged while being transported from the warehouse or store.
This kind of package also provides some protection for your product from external tampering, which means that if someone opens up your package then you will be able to tell without opening it!
Fighting Back Against Cybercrime
The tcos.project is a community-led project designed to combat cybercrime and reduce the risk of online retailers to be attacked by cybercriminals.
We discuss the impact of cyber crime and how it impacts ecommerce, from purchase to delivery.
Cyber crime is a growing problem and it’s only getting worse. There are many ways in which cybercrime can impact ecommerce, from purchase to delivery.
Cybercrime is only going to continue to grow in the future and not it’s not only going to be a problem for ecommerce. Every industry that relies on technology will be dealing with the consequences of this unfortunate issue. We must do more to protect ourselves from cybercrime so we don’t continue seeing these problems get worse over time. As long as humans are involved in any portion of the cyber economy there will be those wanting to get a bigger slice of the pie. Companies can install methods to monitor staff and delivery crews but once a package is at its detitanation a plethora of other criminals step into the game.
We review the methods that cyber crime can be reduced
Tamper-evident packaging is one of the solutions
The ways law enforcement makes use of tamper evidence in the war to stop cyber criminals from destroying evidence.
They can do this when they and the victim avoid evidence destruction, correctly address data integrity, and securely store the data.
Data security is one of the most important aspects of data management. There are many ways that data can be compromised, but this can be prevented if the company is proactive about it. In order to avoid evidence destruction, correctly address data integrity, and securely store the data, there are some steps that must be taken. The first step is to have a plan in place for how to deal with a breach before
When both parties are committed to evidence preservation, it is more likely that the data will be preserved.
This is where the roles of an attorney and a forensic computer specialist come into play. The attorney should take control and establish how the data will be preserved.
The forensic computer specialist should then follow the guidelines set up by the attorney to preserve the data on behalf of both parties.
The persistence of sexual assault cases can be attributed in part to a lack of proper preservation of evidence. If we want to decrease the number of unreported sexual assaults we need to make sure that both parties are committed to preserving evidence from the start.
Sexual assault cases are notoriously hard to prosecute. Many women don’t report their attacks because they know that the evidence will be lost or destroyed. There are a few things we can do to make sure that cases have a fighting chance. For starters, we need to use DNA testing as much as possible – both at the crime scene and on the survivor’s body. We also need to follow best practices for preserving
Investigators must first picture a source before they can begin evaluating the material. A forensic method in which an analyst generates a bit-for-bit replica of a drive is known as imaging a drive. This forensic snapshot of every digital media aids the enquiry by preserving evidence. Investigators should keep in mind that even deleted discs can include vital recoverable data that needs to be identified and catalogued while studying the image. In the best-case scenario, they can use forensic techniques to recover all erased files.
Investigators should generally work only on the duplicate image and never conduct forensic investigation on the original material. In fact, once a system has been penetrated, it is critical to do as little as possible – and ideally nothing – to it other than isolate it to prohibit connections into or out of it and, if necessary, capture the contents of live memory (RAM).
Limiting actions on the original computer is critical, especially if evidence must be presented in court, because forensic investigators must be able to show that they did not alter the evidence in any way by presenting cryptographic hash values, digital time stamps, legal procedures followed, and so on.
A “write blocker” is a piece of hardware that aids in the legal defensibility of a forensic picture and should be used to make the image for analysis whenever one is available.
The use of a write blocker can help prevent tampering with evidence on the computer being examined.
Cryptographic hash values are generated when an investigator scans a system for enquiry (MD5, SHA-1). A hash value’s purpose is to verify the image’s validity and integrity as an exact copy of the source media.
A hash value is generated when an investigator scans a system for enquiry. A hash value’s purpose is to verify the image’s validity and integrity as an exact copy of the source. Cryptographic hashes are irreversible, which means that they cannot be decrypted to retrieve the original data.
Hash values are critical, particularly when admitting evidence into court, because even the slightest change in data results in a totally new hash value.
Hash values are a mathematical representation of data. These values are created by using an algorithm and every single change to the data will result in a totally new hash value. This is why these values are critical, particularly when admitting evidence into court, because any change in the data will produce a different value, which could result in false accusations.
When you create a new file on your computer or modify an existing one, a new hash value is generated for that file. Although this hash value and other file metadata are not visible in a regular file explorer window, they can be viewed by analysts using specialized tools.
When you create a new file on your computer or modify an existing one, a new hash value is generated for that file. Although this hash value and other file metadata are not visible in a regular file explorer, they are stored as part of the computer’s system information and can be easily accessed with softwares like FTK Imager.
If the hash values do not match the projected values, it is possible that the evidence has been tampered with, creating complications in court.
It is no secret that hash values can be used as a form of evidence in court. Due to the nature of hashing, tampering with the evidence will change the hash values. But what if the hash values do not match? There are a few possibilities that may have led to this occurrence, some more nefarious than others.
I will cover how metadata is employed in analysis in another post
The Chain of Custody is a procedure for determining the provenance of an item. Investigators should keep track of all media and evidence transfers using Chain of Custody (CoC) forms, capturing signatures and dates when they collect media from their client and transfer it as appropriate.
The Chain of Custody is a procedure for determining the provenance of an item. Investigators should keep track of all media and evidence transfers using Chain of Custody (CoC) forms, capturing signatures and date/time stamps when items are transferred between individuals.
It is vital to maintain a record of chain-of-custody documents. This artefact establishes that the image has been owned by someone since it was created. Any break in the chain of custody invalidates the legal value of the image, and hence the analysis.
In order to keep evidence from being tampered with, it is important to maintain a record of chain-of-custody. This document establishes that the image has been owned by someone since it was created. Any break in the chain of custody invalidates the image and thus any evidence associated with it.
Any gaps in the record of possession, particularly time spent in an unsecured place, are cause for concern. Investigators may continue to study the data, but the findings are unlikely to hold up against a modestly tech-savvy lawyer in court.
When a person’s possession is lost or stolen, they should take quick action. If the possession is recovered, the person should still take steps to protect themselves and their identity. For example, if a purse was lost containing credit cards and ID, it’s critical to contact the credit card companies to cancel the cards ASAP.
You can find forms on the Internet that investigators use to clearly and simply document all records of change of ownership; we use the NIST Sample Chain of Custody to maintain the chain of custody audit trail.
NIST provides investigators with free forms that can be used to document all records of change of ownership. These forms are designed to clearly and simply track the chain of custody.
