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.

Digital Forensic Evidence Uncovers Entry Point For Background-Check System Hack

Monday, May 11, 2015 (14:37:58)
Hackers broke into third-party software in 2013 to open personal records on U.S. federal employees and contractors with access to classified intelligence, according to the government's largest private employee investigation provider.

That software apparently was an SAP enterprise resource planning application. It’s unclear if there was a fix available for the program flaw at the time of the attack. It’s also not clear whether SAP—which was responsible for maintaining the application—or USIS would have been responsible for patching the flaw...

This article is a recap of some of the main highlights of the Forensics Europe Expo (FEE) held in Kensington Olympia, London, on the 21st and 22nd of April 2015.

Expo Highlights

As an event that focuses on all aspects of forensics, as well as being twinned with the Counter Terror Expo, FEE provides an interesting holistic look at how a crime scene is processed and analysed. This year’s conference saw a lot of attention on fingerprint analysis, although digital forensics also played a strong role in the programme.

Brian Rankin’s discussion about the importance of innovation in forensic investigations, one of the first talks of the conference, looked at the Silverman review and its implications for innovation.

Saturday, May 09, 2015 (09:08:50)
Every forensic examiner is familiar with hex and text viewers; they are the cornerstone of the most basic forensic examination. If all your tools and scripts fail or don’t support a given artifact, you can always fall back to a hex viewer to dig into an artifact to uncover any evidence within. New with IEF version 6.6, we are happy to include a Hex and Text Viewer to assist investigators in their examination.
