Interview With Jad Saliba, Founder & CTO, Magnet Forensics

Tuesday, January 14, 2020 (15:24:41)
Jad, tell us a bit about OUTRIDER and how it came about?

We talk to officials in law enforcement from a variety of different backgrounds and the one constant for us is trying to find ways to help them do the important work they do. In the case of OUTRIDER, I had been speaking with police and parole officers who were looking for quick and easy ways to tell if their parolees — often child predators — were at risk of reoffending. They needed a way to be able to tell if they had been accessing illicit materials, and fast. We’ve had a triage tool for many years now but have been looking for the right time to re-imagine how triage tools work and build something new.

We took that away and built OUTRIDER — a solution that not only helps them scan devices with lightning speed, but is easy enough for all levels of technical proficiency.

Interview With Steve Davis, Director Of Business Development, Digital Discovery

Monday, January 13, 2020 (10:04:35)
Steve, can you tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into e-discovery and digital forensics?

Sure. I actually was a banker back in the mid 1980s and there was a financial crash. And from that, there was a quasi-governmental organization called the Resolution Trust Corp that was born, and I became an investigator for them. Our investigations back in those days were all paper-based.

But, around the early 90s, we started talking about electronically stored information. Obviously they were mainframe computers and things, but it became more and more normalized to start to deal with computer files instead of paper files.

Interview With Jeff Hedlesky, Forensic Evangelist For Tableau Hardware, OpenText

Friday, January 10, 2020 (13:13:06)
Jeff, you've worked at OpenText and (prior to its acquisition) Guidance Software for nearly nine years. What attracted you to work here initially?

Digital forensics was in its infancy back when I was working for Oxford Semiconductor in the early 2000s. When two people I knew and respected in the computer industry, James Wiebe (founder of WiebeTech) and Robert Botchek (founder of Tableau) both independently began work on digital forensic write blockers, both based around one of our OxSemi components, I knew there was something special happening. I’m an (old) nerd, but I’m also an Eagle Scout, so when I found an industry which used a variety of cutting-edge technologies to help the good guys “do their best” to stop the bad guys, I was hooked.

Forensic Acquisition Of Modern Evidence

Thursday, January 09, 2020 (15:39:36)
Dr. Bradley Schatz presents a roadmap to what's changed in digital forensics at DFRWS EU 2019.

Bradley: OK, good afternoon. Thank you all for coming to this session. My name is Bradley Schatz, and today I would like to talk with you about a subject that I've spent the last decade or so focusing on, and that's pretty much forensic acquisition: something that we, as forensic practitioners, all overlook to some degree and think is a done story.

We all know what a forensic image is, and there's really not much new to learn in them. But a fair bit's been going on in the meantime, so I thought I'd talk with you today about what's changed in regard to forensic image formats, and the interplay between forensic imaging and the wider aspect of performing forensics in general.

Register For Webinar: Real-Time Corporate Investigations

Thursday, January 09, 2020 (10:25:23)
Employee misconduct and unethical behaviour can have devastating effects on a company, from loss of revenue, to reputational damage, the burden of paying settlement costs and resulting fines, additional regulation, and even total closure of the company. In the age of corporate scandal, where malicious individuals or groups put organisations' entire viability at stake, a multi-faceted, real-time approach to threat detection and investigation is critical.

Join this webinar to learn about common challenges facing corporate investigators, the impact of evolving and proliferating data, and why malicious insider actions are so difficult to detect. Plus, see a demo of the Nuix Investigation solution, where we'll cover how Nuix can:
- monitor and review user activity and behaviour,
- conduct incident remediation,
- perform endpoint search and seamless collection, and
- enable simultaneous, collaborative case analysis across teams and disciplines

...all in real time.

Date: 16 January 2020
Time: 12:00PM GMT

Presenter: Stuart Clarke
