Cyber Crime Research at Strathclyde

At the end of last April, I was invited to attend the first session of Cyber Crime Research which is conducted by Institutes for Advanced Studies (IAS) along with University of Strathclyde. This session was attended by representatives of UK universities, law enforcement agencies and private sectors. On this moment, I delivered presentation about ATM Crime in which I focused on modus operandi and forensic investigation. I explained how to perform forensic investigation on this crime properly; what type of targets (digital evidence) recovered from electronic evidence; and how to make relationship between perpetrators and the evidence.

I also introduced "Scientific Crime Investigation Triangle" comprising criminals, victims and evidence. To connect among them, it requires forensic investigation and modus operandi. Besides that, I discussed about modus operandi of ATM crime such as duplication of ATM cards by using skimmers and hacking ATM machine by exploiting its system. I also showed the data recovered from skimmer's memory such as 16 digits of card numbers, 15 to 20 digits of account identity, 4 to 6 digits of PIN codes, and countries issuing the card as well as video recordings revealed from spy camera attached around ATM machine. To investigate it properly, it requires processes subsequently such as acquisition, examination, analysis and reportings which are based on the Digital Forensic Principles referring to ACPO Guidelines on Electronic Evidence.
