About the FWG

The Forensic Working Group (FWG) is a collaborative group dedicated to the effective scientific application and presentation of digital forensics to the courts, government, business and general public through analysis, reporting, testimony and educational outreach.

The members of the FWG serve as triers of fact in all facets of private and public sectors, applying peer reviewed science and best practices to real world scenarios involving image, video and audio data in order to form enhancement, authentication, measurement and identification opinions that can be conveyed to a non-technical audience.

The FWG works closely with industry groups, including the NIST OSAC Standards group to establish industry standards/qualifications to assist judges in sorting out expert in this field and those unsuitable to testify as an expert.

Composed of practitioners, scientists, scholars, and litigators, members of the Forensic Working Group members operate in accordance with the ethics and the scientific foundations established by this industry.

It's a great look at the current state of forensic science (pretty dismal) along with suggestions for how to move forward so that more disciplines have credibility to DNA identification."
