four suggestions for working mobile

Jan 26, 2022

keep digital evidence secure – no matter where you work

VidaNyx mobile was designed to help you and your MDT continue your workflow wherever you go. VidaNyx Mobile, available for our Standard users, features the same 13 layers of military grade security and HIPAA compliance as our web-based application. This  means your digital forensic evidence is safe no matter where you work. It’s always good to refresh ourselves of best practices when working with protected health information, here’s four:

1.  use a privacy screen protector/filter 

Working from anywhere means being conscientious of who might be able to view your device while you are working with sensitive information. A privacy screen protector can limit the view-ability of your screen to those around you. 

2.  wear headphones 

While you are conscientious of who can SEE your device, it is also important to keep in mind what may be HEARD when a video plays. Headphones, whether wireless or corded, are an important tool in keeping sensitive information private.

3.  stay aware of your surroundings

Even with safeguards in place to ensure that people around you cannot see or hear your work in the VidaNyx app, it is important to be aware of your surroundings when accessing sensitive information. If your location isn’t secure or is too crowded, always excuse yourself to begin your work from a different location.

4.  never leave VidaNyx open and unattended

Leaving your phone unattended while logged into the app leaves sensitive information open to people who should not have access to it. Make sure you are using secure passcodes to open your device and your auto-lock is enabled.

from darkness to light with tech for the public interest

There is no reason why people in the U.S. should have more information about their nearest coffee shop than where to go for sexual assault response. This summer I was introduced to one of the nation’s leading sexual assault reform advocates, Leah Griffin. I immediately knew her powerful story would change our nation.

child advocacy teams serve more children than ever before

Supporting secure video evidence delivery across 4,800 agencies nationwide, at VidaNyx we have the privilege of working with more than 16,000 multidisciplinary professionals. These amazing human beings at the front lines of child safety interrupt trauma and build hope during some of the most trying times in recent history. However, this work often comes at the expense of their own well being.

protecting child forensic interview video evidence

Across the US, child advocacy centers are focused on providing a continuum of services to children who have suffered from incidents of child abuse and neglect. To effectively provide services without retraumatization, child forensic interviews are video recorded so they can be shared with law enforcement, prosecution, child welfare agencies, health professionals and when necessary, defense attorneys – without forcing the child to have to retell the story of their trauma unnecessarily.

Turning a Tech Talk into a ‘Nology Walk

When I sat down to write this post, I had just returned home from visiting a child advocacy center after training their team on a new cloud-based video management solution. The CAC I visited conducts more than 2,000 child forensic interviews per year, and my mind was full with all the ways CACs can benefit from cloud technology.
