New Mobile Forensic Fast Track Training Gives Examiners More Info in Less Time

Tuesday, March 18, 2014 (12:04:59)
Paraben Corporation has announced a new training course for mobile forensic examiners that combines two levels of training into one content heavy course.

“We want to make sure we optimize the time existing mobile examiners spend in training. This combined Fast Track course will give them all the fundamental and advanced smart phone knowledge to be able to tackle an examination on any type of device,” explained Amber Schroader, CEO of Paraben Corporation.

Paraben’s Mobile Forensic Fast Track training course combines two weeks of training into one 5 day course replacing the need to attend both Mobile Forensics Level 1 and 2. Examiners attending the course still have the opportunity to apply for the PCME (Paraben Certified Mobile Examiner) certification to help with their qualifications as a mobile forensic specialist. Details on the course outline and requirements can be found on the Paraben training website at training.paraben.com.

Armstrong and digital forensics: Right under our noses

Friday, March 14, 2014 (12:06:36)
Yesterday, the entire Chatham County Commission visited Armstrong Atlantic State University’s Cyber Forensics Labs, a unit in the campus police department. I too have had the opportunity to tour this unique facility as part of a broader introduction to the university.

On my tour, what struck me, besides the beauty and serenity of the campus, was the fact the police station was included on the tour. What’s up with that? I mean, when you take your kid to consider universities, I hope the police station is the last item on your visitation list.

Well, that’s what I thought before I learned more about careers in Cyber Forensics...

Former policeman uses new nonprofit to provide digital forensics to KPD

Friday, March 07, 2014 (12:50:31)
What if you were a law enforcement officer with a suspected criminal’s cell phone or laptop, and believed the electronic devices held evidence critical to your case? Or what if, as a parent, you fear your child has been texting the wrong people or visiting websites they shouldn’t?

In the Kerrville area, a possible solution is Bill Aycock’s new business, “VeriFi Laboratories, Inc.,” a digital forensic lab.

It’s related to all the “CSI” television shows that depict law enforcement labs full of computerized equipment that “dumps” cell phone and other information for officers to use to solve cases. Aycock said all that can be done with today’s technology (though not as fast as it seems on the TV shows)...

Hidden “Signature” in Online Photos Could Help Nab Child Abusers

Wednesday, March 05, 2014 (15:05:48)
Police may soon have a new way to catch pedophiles who distribute child abuse photos anonymously online. The technology could also help law enforcement agencies in other ways, such as identifying smartphone thieves who take pictures with the stolen gadgets and then post their snapshots on the Internet.

Riccardo Satta, scientific project officer of the European Commission Joint Research Centre’s Institute for the Protection and Security of the Citizen, described the work at the Computers, Privacy and Data Protection Conference in Brussels held in January. The key is the ability to spot a unique, unremovable pattern—or signature—that each digital camera imprints on photographs. By comparing the signature from a specific camera with those found in images posted to social media, a forensic investigator would be able to establish that all the images had been taken by the same camera. Additional contextual information pointing to the photographer can help investigators narrow in on the culprit...

Recent breaches tell the story: Organizations are not entirely prepared to respond to such incidents. In this video interview recorded on the expo floor of RSA 2014, Craig Carpenter of AccessData discusses the next generation of incident response, specifically:

• The flaws in today's incident response strategies;
• How to define next-generation incident response;
• How to assess and improve current incident response capabilities.

In addition to what he's learned from AccessData's own customer experiences, Carpenter is armed with new insights from a Ponemon survey.

Carpenter is the Chief Marketing Officer of AccessData, overseeing global marketing strategy and demand generation programs. Prior to joining AccessData, he was VP of Marketing and Business Development at Recommind where he pioneered and popularized predictive coding and predictive information governance into the hottest trends in the e-discovery and GRC markets, respectively.
