Review of Magnet IEF

Thursday, November 26, 2015 (13:13:51)
Reviewed by Steve Robles

Internet Evidence Finder (referenced hereinafter as "IEF") is a computer and mobile forensics tool developed by Jad Saliba of Magnet Forensics, formerly JAD Software. I first began experimenting with this tool in 2011 when the company I was working for began looking for a more efficient solution to analyzing web artifacts, specifically Internet activity and chat communications. While I was initially impressed with the functionality of the software, I was not completely sold on the product because I was utilizing other tools that had similar features and capabilities. It wasn’t until early 2015 when I began using the full version of IEF, and my only regret was not pushing for the purchase sooner.

Review: Practical Mobile Forensics

Friday, November 20, 2015 (11:03:28)
Considering that there are separate books – indeed, whole genres – devoted to Android and iOS forensics specifically, writing a single tome that covers mobile forensics in a meaningful way is an ambitious task.

Not to be put off by the sheer amount of ground to cover, however, the authors of Practical Mobile Forensics have done just that. Satish Bommisetty, Rohit Tamma and Heather Mahalik have written a self-confessed “action-packed” guide to the mobile forensics world.

The book is aimed at forensic investigators who have only a very limited level of experience in mobile forensics. Like its sister book, Learning Android Forensics, it focuses primarily on open source and free solutions, which makes it all the more appropriate for those who are just starting out in a digital forensics career.

Interview with Joe Giordano, Professor of Practice, Utica College

Thursday, November 19, 2015 (10:39:44)
Joe, can you tell us something about your background and why you decided to teach digital forensics?

I am a Professor of Practice at Utica College (Utica, New York) and also serve as the director of two master’s degree programs – Master of Science in Cybersecurity and Master of Professional Studies in Cyber Policy and Risk Analysis. Currently, most of my teaching is relegated to basic and foundational courses on cybersecurity and information security. We’ve recently hired some outstanding experts to teach our computer forensics courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The people we now have teaching computer forensics come from backgrounds in law enforcement, the military, national intelligence and business. We have professors who hold most every major forensics certification that you can think of. It’s a faculty to be proud of.
