EnCase 7.10: Better Visibility, Simpler Reporting, More Flexible

Monday, August 04, 2014 (14:36:09)
For more than 15 years, EnCase has empowered investigators by exposing data invisible to most tools and putting this data at the investigator’s fingertips with flexible, accessible analysis and reporting. EnCase 7.10 is built to continue this tradition.

EnCase 7.10 expands on best-in-class visibility by unlocking self-encrypting drives and supporting OS X investigations with HFS+ Double Files, Quick Look Thumbnail Caches and Keychain parsing. EnCase 7.10 simplifies analysis and reporting through a new Report Template Wizard. Not every investigation is a “dead box” investigation, and EnCase 7.10 has adapted to include EnCase Portable volatile data collection and triage capabilities at no additional cost.

Monday, August 04, 2014 (13:31:05)
The phenomenon of cyber bullying has received a significant amount of attention in the last decade and literature in this field has grown exponentially with advice and guidance on how to deal with cyber bullying. Yet the term cyber bullying did not exist in the public’s consciousness a decade ago and the advice on how to deal with such an intractable problem which is omnipresent and pervasive in its nature has been plentiful. Hinduja & Patchin (2008) described cyber bullying as “an unfortunate by-product of the joining of the emergence of electronic technology as a means of communication, which is relatively still only in its infancy and adolescent aggression which is played out in the virtual world for all to see”...

Paraben has announced the agenda for PFIC 2014. The popular digital forensics conference runs November 12-14, 2014 at Snowbird, Utah. PFIC has a successful mix of lectures, labs, and training sessions. In addition the event is known to have some of the best networking with industry experts that has made it a priority for forensic examiners each year.

"This year's agenda has something for everyone," said Amber Schroader, CEO of Paraben. "Between the beginning and advanced training tracks and the lectures that everyone will be able to attend, anyone from novice to veteran will get even more out of this year's conference. With labs and longer training sessions, you can’t beat this agenda." PFIC is among the first conferences to address new forensic challenges like Bitcoin information tracking, chip-off forensics for USB drives, and Python scripting. Attendees can also earn continuing education credits at the event.

In recent years, cloud computing has made the leap from an emerging technology to government mainstay, allowing agencies an IT avenue to share services, save money and increase efficiency.

However, cloud computing still presents some major technical challenges in government, as illustrated by a recent draft report issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Prepared by the NIST Cloud Computing Forensic Science Working Group, the report summarizes a staggering 65 challenges cloud computing presents to forensics investigators who sift through bits and bytes of digital evidence to solve crimes...
