Forensic Audio and Linguistic Analysis of Insider Threats Examined

The Spring 2013 Forensic Fridays series will conclude on Friday, May 10, with Forensic Audio and Linguistic Analysis of Insider Threats: From Watergate to Today, from 1 to 4:30 p.m. in the Africa Room of the Duquesne Union.

The seminar will examine how advances in the fields of forensic linguistics and audio analysis are enabling more effective investigation of insider threats, from fraud to commercial theft to the sabotage of computer systems. Included among the topics to be covered will be a special case study of the infamous 18 ½-minute gap in President Nixon's Oval Office tape of June 1972.

Featured presenters include:

  • Dr. Carole Chaski, a leading forensic linguistic expert and executive director of the Institute for Linguistic Evidence
  • Philip T. Mellinger, chief security officer for Trusted Knight Corporation and former National Security Agency analyst who has worked on the Nixon tape.

Forensic Audio and Linguistic Analysis of Insider Threats is presented by Duquesne University's Wecht Institute of Forensic Science and Law.
