Interview with Elena Pakhomova, Co-Founder, ReclaiMe

Friday, May 22, 2015 (09:20:02)
Elena, you co-founded ReclaiMe; could you tell us a bit about what made you decide to start the company?

Data recovery is our family business. Initially my sister and her husband were involved in data recovery. Then I became a part of the team. If someone long ago had said that I would do this, I would probably have laughed. However, at this point I associate myself only with this business. No wonder they say that life is unpredictable.

What does your day to day role entail? Which aspects do you find the most challenging, and the most rewarding?

Every working day starts with the support. Basically it includes some routine questions, like differences in licenses, software activation, and so on. However, sometimes we face the complex cases that cannot be resolved quickly.

Evidence Acquisition and Analysis from iCloud

Thursday, May 21, 2015 (08:56:01)
by Mattia Epifani & Pasquale Stirparo


iCloud is a free cloud storage and cloud computing service designed by Apple to replace MobileMe. The service allows users to store data (music, pictures, videos, and applications) on remote servers and share them on devices with iOS 5 or later operating systems, on Apple computers running OS X Lion or later, or on a PC with Windows Vista or later. Similar to its predecessor, MobileMe, iCloud allows users to synchronize data between devices (e-mail, contacts, calendars, bookmarks, notes, reminders, iWork documents, and so on), or to make a backup of an iOS device (iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch) on remote servers rather than using iTunes and your local computer.

The iCloud service was announced on June 6, 2011 during the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference but became operational to the public from October 12, 2011.

Cellebrite UFED Pro Simplifies Private Cloud-Based Data Extractions

Wednesday, May 20, 2015 (22:15:29)
Cellebrite, the leader in mobile forensic extraction, decoding and analysis solutions, has taken its trusted UFED platform to the next level with the introduction of its UFED Pro Series. This new innovative suite allows mobile device data from the widest range of mobile and GPS devices -- and for the first time, private data from the cloud -- to be forensically extracted, combined with service provider data and analyzed in a unified platform. The UFED Pro Series, introducing UFED Cloud Analyzer, helps forensic examiners in the lab streamline workflows, reveal more data sources and speed investigations to improve legal outcomes.

“With more data generated and stored both on and off mobile devices, and the important role cloud data is playing in investigations, examiners can’t risk missing critical, time-sensitive evidence,” said Ron Serber, Co-CEO, Cellebrite. “The strength of the UFED Pro Series comes from its ability to simplify complex analytical tasks, deliver timely access to private data residing in cloud environments such as Facebook and Twitter via Cloud Analyzer, and merge it with other data sources, including third party data, into a unified, actionable view. This empowers specialists to quickly uncover common connections and correlate critical evidence that may help solve cases faster.”

Interview with Eoghan Casey, Founding Partner, CASEITE

Wednesday, May 13, 2015 (15:46:22)
Eoghan, you've been in digital forensics for a long time; how did you first get into the field?

I first got into the field by accident. The husband of a friend of mine was a violent crime investigator, he was a forensic scientist who was starting to specialise in serial violent offenders, and he needed some tech support. Basically understanding evidence on the internet. And I got interested in it in terms of the social contribution, and so started to pursue that and ultimately went and specialised in intrusion investigation for a while, but also helped criminal investigators as best my time could allow. And ultimately that's my interest, I've now maybe split it out: one foot into the network intrusion side and one in the criminal. Which is nice, I like being able to do both.
