Reporting & Audit Trail
Market Research performed by Qwarie determined that 66.2% of respondents stated that a templated Evidential Reporting component would help, with 45.2% stating it would help a lot, as reports take so much longer to compose than it takes to perform the research.
From the results of this market research, it was apparent that an OSINT research application should be much more than a tool to facilitate OSINT research. The Report became a key component of m-SIS.
5 October 2015, while m-SIS was being developed, the Department of Justice (England and Wales) rolled out Better Case Management to six early adopter courts. The early adopter courts were encouraged to deploy the new Digital Case System, and to be compliant with DCS by April 2016.
Qwarie took this opportunity to ensue that the Report module of m-SIS is compatible with DCS
Every action taken, search string deployed and web page visited is recorded and time-stamped to create an Audit Trail. Screenshot captures of webpages are saved with a time-stamp to the Audit Trail. All recording to the Audit Trail is automatic and the Audit Trail is read-only providing Qwarie clients with the highest confidence level for Qwarie researchers.
Anyone reading an Evidential Report may easily reference the Audit Trail file at any point, allowing for quick verification of the evidence gathering process.
Defendants that attempt to modify or remove incriminating data within their Social Media shall be exposed by the Audit Trail.
The Audit Trail is saved as a separate, tamper proof, file providing Qwarie Reports with high confidence of integrity.
