Interview With Angus Marshall, Digital Forensic Scientist

Thursday, October 04, 2018 (12:48:30)
Angus, tell us a bit about yourself. What is your role, and how long have you been working in digital forensics?

Where to begin? I have a lot of different roles these days, but by day I’m a Lecturer in Cybersecurity – currently at the University of York, and also run my own digital forensic consultancy business. I drifted into the forensic world almost by accident back in 2001 when a server I managed was hacked. I presented a paper on the investigation of that incident at a forensic science conference and a few weeks later found myself asked to help investigate a missing person case that turned out to be a murder. There’s been a steady stream of casework ever since.

Introducing XAMN 4.0 – Redesigned To Help Investigators Find Evidence Fast

Thursday, October 04, 2018 (11:12:05)
Extracting and decoding mobile data is only half the battle. Finding the critical evidence or intelligence you’re looking for can be equally challenging, like finding a needle in a haystack – or thousands of haystacks, based on the high volumes of data found in modern smartphones.

XAMN 4.0 is a breakthrough; we’ve combined four tools in one powerful, yet lightweight package, with unprecedented capabilities for visualizing data, to help you find the data you need — faster than ever.

Opinion: Is ISO17025 The Right Standard For Digital Forensics?

Wednesday, October 03, 2018 (12:55:08)
by Rich2005

Standardisation is currently the subject of animated discussion among digital forensic examiners worldwide. In this opinion piece, Rich2005 looks at the challenges of the ISO17025 standard for digital forensics and why it might not be the best choice for the field. Please note that the views contained within this article are the opinions of its author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Forensic Focus.

In my opinion ISO17025 is a dangerous standard. It gives the illusion of accuracy and reliability, whilst in the real world it may actually lead to poorer results via static process-following, bulk-evidence production, and the assumption of reliable results at the expense of properly considering the complexities of individual cases.

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.
