Webinar: Data Visualisation: The Step Forward For Digital Forensics

Tuesday, April 05, 2016 (09:20:17)
Date: Wednesday, 6th April 2016
Time: 4PM (GMT) / 8AM (PST) / 11AM (EST)

Registration: http://info.nuix.com/Beyond-Keyword-webinar-EMEA-6Apr-Forensic.html

Presenters: James Billingsley, Principal Solutions Consultant, Cybersecurity & Investigations, Nuix; Robert J. O’Leary, Senior Solutions Engineer, Investigations SME, Nuix

Is keyword search becoming obsolete in the new age of forensic digital investigation?

As the bulk of investigative activity moves from paper to digital documents, keyword searching became the primary tool for identifying relevant evidence in a data set. However, keywords can be imprecise. A search may miss important items or return too many irrelevant results. As data volumes grow, investigators must trawl through ever increasing numbers of search results to find the information they seek.

Traditional digital investigation tools present these results in lists and tables. It quickly becomes too much for the human mind to take in. Data visualisation provides a much easier way for the brain to understand large quantities of data.

Interview With David-Olivier Jaquet-Chiffelle, Event Chairman, DFRWS EU

Thursday, March 24, 2016 (10:05:46)
David-Olivier, tell us a bit about yourself. What first sparked your interest in digital forensics, and what is your current role?

I studied Mathematics and did my PhD in number theory! You may wonder what the link with DF is?

Mathematics led me to cryptology, then to privacy and data protection, and eventually to new forms of identities in the information society.

I am currently full professor at the School of Criminal Sciences of the University of Lausanne. I recently created and now lead a new master program in digital investigation and identification.

BitLocker: What’s New in Windows 10 November Update, And How To Break It

Wednesday, March 23, 2016 (10:36:24)
BitLocker is a popular full-disk encryption scheme employed in all versions of Windows (but not in every edition) since Windows Vista. BitLocker is used to protect stationary and removable volumes against outside attacks. Since Windows 8, BitLocker is activated by default on compatible devices if the administrative account logs in with Microsoft Account credentials. BitLocker protection is extremely robust, becoming a real roadblock for digital forensics.

Various forensic techniques exist allowing experts to overcome BitLocker protection. Capturing a memory dump of a computer while the encrypted volume is mounted is one of the most frequently used venues of attack. However, acquiring BitLocker-encrypted volumes may become significantly more difficult with the release of Windows 10 November Update. In this article, we’ll explore existing methods of recovering BitLocker volumes, look at what has changed with November Update, and review the remaining acquisition paths.

Interview With Rob Lozowski, Event Manager, Forensics Europe Expo

Thursday, March 17, 2016 (11:14:43)
Rob, you manage FEE which takes place annually in London. Tell us a bit about your role: what does the average day look like?

As event manager, my job in a nutshell is to bring together the UK & International forensics community for a 2 day conference and exhibition in April, at a unique networking showcase in central London. Not unlike most industries, efficient & intelligent sales and marketing are the key drivers to success and I insist that both of these groups understand the industry within which they operate: they must get into the DNA (excuse the pun) of forensics to enable them to make informed decisions.
