Is Your Computer Forensics Investigation A Symphony Or A Circus?

Friday, December 13, 2013 (11:39:01)
Digital forensics is changing, and you should be prepared for more of it in the future, not less. The increase of cloud computing has, in some ways, reduced the instances of hard drive analyses, but the explosion in mobile devices has more than offset the need for device-level analysis for litigation and investigations. In fact, due to the wide variety of mobile devices, the myriad ways of configuring them, and the new types of data created and stored, there is an explosion in the need for qualified digital forensics. Even if you have not needed digital forensics in the past, it is increasingly likely you will in the future.

Monday, November 26, 2012 (14:29:45)
In this day and age, email is more than just messages, calendars, and contacts for organizations, they also need the ability to address legal requirements around message retention (both keeping content or automatically deleting content by policy) along with the ability to do eDiscovery search of content throughout the enterprise as well as put content on Legal Hold. While much of this was included in Exchange 2010, what Microsoft did for Exchange 2013 (and the corresponding SharePoint 2013, Lync 2013, and Office Web Apps) greatly enhances an organizations ability to perform required tasks...

Monday, November 19, 2012 (18:46:48)
In this article, we'll look at an SQL injection attack. We'll look at what offences are committed in different countries when a crime like this happens, how you should report the crime, and what evidence you can preserve. Take this scenario:
