the National Association to Protect Children, known as PROTECT, to make
available computer forensic tools and training to uncover online child
exploitation and rescue children in danger. PROTECT has developed a program to
train wounded warriors to conduct the digital investigations and expand law
PROTECT has a mission to protect children from abuse and exploitation. The
organization has grown in size and support since it was founded in 2003, and
its list of accomplishments includes drafting and supporting the passage of
the landmark legislation, Alicia’s Law.
The trained wounded veterans will become members of an elite national corps of
H.E.R.O.s (Human Exploitation Rescue Operatives). The program enables
returning military veterans to gain a new, marketable skill while
supplementing the understaffed federal law enforcement agencies and state ICAC
(Internet Crimes Against Children) task forces who are overwhelmed with
growing case loads. Each H.E.R.O. recruit will be provided one Digital
Intelligence UltraKit™, including a Tableau TD3 Forensic Imager.
PROTECT’s Executive Director Grier Weeks identified Guidance Software and
Digital Intelligence as resources to provide the latest in digital forensic
equipment and training. Guidance Software has long been the leader in
developing Tableau® forensic hardware products and EnCase® software to
investigate computer crimes. Digital Intelligence, a top reseller of Tableau
products, is a leader in developing forensic computer systems and an
authorized training partner for Guidance Software.
According to Grier, “The contribution of equipment and digital forensic tools
from Guidance Software and Digital Intelligence were critical to not only
providing the wounded veterans the required tools for starting investigations,
but also injecting hope and energy into an organization and cause that is
eager to rescue abused children.”
“We are honored to have been selected to partner with PROTECT in what we
believe to be one of the most important uses of our technology—protecting
children,” said Jim Borecki, vice president, Forensic Business Unit of
Guidance Software. “We have long supported ICAC and other organizations that
seek to protect children and look forward to working with the H.E.R.O.s to
help them make a difference.”
