Thursday, November 27, 2014 (10:09:40)
On the 14th-17th of October 2014, Magnet Forensics ran its first remote training course on the essential knowledge required to properly use Internet Evidence Finder, Magnet's flagship software solution.

The course was set up with the aim of aiding digital forensics investigators who are completely new to IEF, or investigators who are not used to working with digital forensics solutions but require their use on certain cases.

Rob Maddox, Magnet's Director of Global Training, put the course together and described how it was developed:

Rob Maddox, Director of Global Training, Magnet Forensics

Tuesday, November 25, 2014 (14:02:43)
Rob, please tell us about your role as Director of Global Training at Magnet Forensics.

My role as the Director of Global Training for Magnet Forensics encompasses several unique yet interconnected responsibilities, which include training development and delivery; business development; de facto sales and marketing representation; and product development.

First and foremost, I have been responsible for developing the new 3-day IEF Essentials course. I basically spent the first two months in my new position locked in my office, surviving on energy drinks and microwave meals, while working on the new curriculum. Once I had the “beta” version ready, I delivered this to a select group of subject matter experts (SMEs) from the digital forensics community, and used their feedback to further revise the course into its current format and content.

With the release of Internet Evidence Finder v6.5, Magnet Forensics adds support for Windows Phone, and introduces new triage features including live system artifact recovery capabilities.

IEF is already capable of recovering evidence from native and third-party mobile applications found on Android and iOS smartphones. With IEF v6.5, investigators can now analyze a physical image of a Windows Phone acquired using JTAG and chip-off techniques.

Now available as an optional module, Triage capabilities can be added-on to any license, giving an examiner the flexibility to bring their dongle into the field to conduct live system forensics. Capture live RAM, collect data from live system artifacts, and run an IEF search to recover hundreds of different types of digital forensics artifacts from Windows powered computers...

Proposed UK law aims to identify suspects by IP address

Monday, November 24, 2014 (13:35:35)
A law forcing firms to hand details to police identifying who was using a computer or mobile phone at a given time is to be outlined by Theresa May.

The home secretary said the measure would improve national security.

As part of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill, providers would have to retain data linking devices to users.

But campaigners warned it could see the revival of the so-called "snoopers' charter" - a previous attempt to bring in wide-ranging web monitoring powers...

Discover Evidence on PCs and Mobile Devices with Belkasoft Evidence Center 2015

Thursday, November 20, 2014 (10:26:32)
Belkasoft have released a major update to their flagship forensic tool, Belkasoft Evidence Center. With the version 7.0, Evidence Center becomes a true all-in-one forensic solution, reliably analyzing evidence from all imaginable sources.

Evidence Center is well known for its ability to easily find and analyze 500+ types of evidence (such as documents, emails, chats, system and registry files, etc.). What makes this new release different is the ability not just to analyze supported apps and formats, but also to perform low-level investigations of any piece of evidence on a suspect’s device or image.
