Huawei Device Support In Oxygen Forensic Detective

Monday, August 19, 2019 (15:15:59)
Oxygen Forensic Detective offers various methods of data extraction from Huawei devices. First, Huawei devices can be connected via USB cable for logical or physical acquisition depending on the model and Android OS version.

Interview With Nicole Odom, Forensic Scientist, Virginia DFS

Monday, August 19, 2019 (09:30:03)
Nicole, you started out in chemistry and biological sciences before moving from orthopedics to digital forensics. What prompted you to pivot into the cyber world?

I actually get asked that question quite frequently, as my background has a little bit of everything; however, all of my experiences are centered on some type of science. I have always enjoyed researching and building from small ideas, so I knew that I wanted to pursue science in my undergraduate studies. Chemistry was the most inviting because it was so hands-on, and I knew I could focus on something I really enjoyed while taking the extra classes that would allow me to pursue the medical sciences. Once I graduated, I looked for a job in medical research and got the opportunity to experience the human-related aspect; however, I quickly realized that I wanted to go back to school and pursue a degree that allowed me to work in a setting where every day is different within the lab. It was actually a friend who told me that I should look into the forensic sciences because he felt like it was right up my alley, and I’m so grateful for his push.

Scott Sattler, Incident Response Manager, HealthFirst

Monday, August 12, 2019 (13:35:00)
Scott, can you tell us a little about yourself, your role at HealthFirst and how you came to work in digital forensics?

I have worked in cyber defense for the last two decades and have witnessed the changing threat landscape and the ever-evolving and improving toolset. In the last five years I can actually feel positive about detecting and avoiding complex incidents, which cost corporations millions in lost revenue and fines.

Currently, I have a team of investigators that handle roughly 60 incidents a week. The incidents are ever growing as we bring in new tools that bring transparency to all events occurring externally and internally to the corporation. Generally business units hate the spotlight, but once they see the value of the product that we can bring to them, they are on board.
