Interview With Damir Delija, Senior Lecturer, Zagreb University

Wednesday, September 26, 2018 (17:21:47)
Damir, you're a Senior Lecturer at Zagreb University of Applied Sciences (TVZ). Tell us a bit about yourself and how you started working in digital forensics.

I've been involved in digital forensics since about 2008, before that other things in IT, mostly UNIX system administration. I've also being teaching and lecturing since the late 90's. My exposure to security is a long one, what always fascinated me was how impossible it is to introduce solid security into education and into everyday commercial practices.

In 2008 I joined a local company, Insig2, which promotes and sells forensic products. Our plan was to cover the local market with professional products and reliable support. It turned out to be completely different from how we'd planned it, with a lot of traveling around the world.

Walkthrough: Analyze DI Face Detection Recognition

Friday, September 21, 2018 (14:21:17)
Let’s check out the new features of the Face Detection within Griffeye Analyze DI. Make sure in the Analyze Forensic Market you have the Face and Video utility pack both activated before you create your case. Once you do so, we can go ahead and create a new case, and bring in our data. I’m going to call it the ‘Training Case – Faces’. Bring in the folder containing the images in our investigation.

Now, when you bring the case in, make sure that you have the Face Detection and Recognition turned on in the video options and, after the import is done, make sure that you have the face detection app checked so that it can run after it ingests the data. Now, Griffeye is going to go through its normal ingestion process, analyzing and doing what it needs to do, and once this process is done, it will begin running the face detection app that we can then use later, as you can see here.

Word Forensic Analysis And Compound File Binary Format

Tuesday, September 18, 2018 (15:14:37)
by Arman Gungor

Microsoft Word forensic analysis is something digital forensic investigators do quite often for document authentication. Because of the great popularity of Microsoft Office, many important business documents such as contracts and memoranda are created using Word. When things go south, some of these documents become key evidence and subject to forensic authentication.

My goal in this article is to review a sample Word document in Word Binary File Format, take a look at the underlying data in Compound File Binary (CFB) file format and see what we can find out beyond what mainstream tools show us.

I chose a sample in Word Binary Format (i.e., .doc) rather than in Word Extensions to the Office Open XML File Format (i.e., .docx) because many other file types in the Microsoft universe, such as MSG files, are also based on the CFB file format. I consider CFB to be a treasure trove of forensic artifacts.

Webinar: Fraud, IP Theft, And An Intrusion - A Case Study

Tuesday, September 18, 2018 (14:33:14)
When you’re faced with an intrusion — whether you were brought in as an outside consultant or are responsible for incident response for your organization — your stakeholders or management ask the same question: What did they take, and how did they get in?

In order to answer these questions, examiners must correlate a lot of different data. From the primary source files of interest, to system and network logs, to supporting artifacts that indicate user and file activity, there is a lot of data to go through and having a sound process and reliable tools can help answer these questions.

In this webinar, Nathan Little, Gillware Digital Forensics and Jamie McQuaid, Magnet Forensics will use a real case to demonstrate how Magnet AXIOM can be used to help identify the source of an intrusion and what sensitive data was taken by the attackers.

Join us for this live webinar where you’ll not only be able to learn more about how you can get all this information using AXIOM, but you can ask the experts questions during a live Q&A.

Presenters: Nathan Little, Gillware Digital Forensics and Jamie McQuaid, Magnet Forensics
