Giving Back In DFIR

Friday, July 20, 2018 (08:38:05)
by Jessica Hyde, Magnet Forensics

A few months back I was on my way to BSides NoVa, having a conversation with someone competing in the CTF about where his team would donate the prize money to if they won. I suggested some organizations related to helping young people learn about Information Security. A few hours later, I was relaying the story to a friend and she mentioned that she wasn’t aware of many of the groups that I was referencing. At that point, I realized that information needed to be shared.

A few months later I was at BSidesRoc and heard an incredible keynote by Matt Mitchell: Practical Security: Real World Lessons. In this presentation, Matt talked about a gamut of ways that Information Security professionals could use their skills to help others. He spoke about work that he and other hackers do that has meaning in different ways. I was inspired and started looking for ways that we can use our skills as Digital Forensic professionals to give back.

Thursday, July 19, 2018 (09:47:30)
Tina, you're a DPhil student in Cyber Security at the University of Oxford. What was it that first sparked your interest in digital forensics and cyber security?

I first became interested in forensics when in college, I have always had an interest in science and law subjects and found forensic science a good combination of these.

I found the CSI programs fascinating and this encouraged me to take my degree in Forensic Science.

Whilst at university my interest in computing developed when I built my own PC and setup a home network, this prompted me to undertake a master's in Digital Forensics and computer security.
