Countering Anti-Forensic Efforts – Part 1

Tuesday, September 01, 2015 (09:25:04)
Computer forensic techniques allow investigators to collect evidence from various digital devices. Tools and techniques exist allowing discovery of evidence that is difficult to get, including destroyed, locked, or obfuscated data. At the same time, criminals routinely make attempts to counter forensic efforts by wiping data, deleting files, faking or clearing logs, histories and other traces of performed activities. Anti-forensic efforts are not limited to just that. In this whitepaper, we will have a brief overview of common anti-forensic techniques frequently used by suspects who are not specialists in high-tech, and ways to counter them during the investigation.

Tuesday, August 25, 2015 (18:28:20)
Reviewed by Scar de Courcier, Forensic Focus

On the 11th-13th of August 2015, AccessData ran a live online training course to teach FTK users how to get the most out of the software solution. The course was aimed at people who had already used FTK and completed some basic training beforehand, and aimed to expand investigators’ knowledge of the tool.

The training itself was managed by Syntricate which, although technically a part of AccessData, was created to offer training and education for digital forensics professionals. Syntricate aims to be as platform-agnostic as possible during training courses and provides a range of training options with many of the well-known digital forensics companies.
