From the 6th – 7th of July 2016, Forensic Focus will be attending the CIFI Security Summit in London, England. If there are any topics you’d particularly like us to cover, or any speakers you think we should interview, please let us know in the comments.
Below is an overview of the subjects and speakers that will be featured at CIFI.
The event will be split into three streams running over two days. Topics covered will include cyber intelligence, digital forensics and computer crime investigation.
Day one will begin with discussions of open source intelligence, mobile forensics and cyber risk. The OSINT stream will commence with Daniel Pearce speaking about the vetting and surveillance of OSINT professionals, and will then move on to look at current tools and trends in open source intelligence.
The second stream will begin with the topic of mobile forensics, with Paul Baxter from MSAB talking about the various options available to mobile forensic professionals. Alex Tipograff from Cellebrite will then take over to discuss the importance of cloud data in many investigations, and how digital forensics professionals can ensure they are up to date with techniques in cloud data collection. The morning’s second stream will conclude with Louise Hollands from HMRC demonstrating how to uncover hidden evidence from mobile devices.
The third stream, which will focus on cyber security, will look at the Internet of Things and its significant security risks. Machine learning and its applications to threat detection will then be discussed, followed by a session on incident response strategy.
The afternoon’s sessions will focus on social media profiling and how it can complement online investigations, followed by a further look at the Internet of Things and its use in an investigative context. In the digital forensics stream, presenters will be discussing remote evidence recovery and SQLite forensics. Christopher Rivinus will be leading the cyber security stream with a discussion of insider threats, followed by a talk from Steve Wright on the implications of EU data protection law.
The three streams will then come together for a grand panel, which will discuss how industries can work together to fight high-tech crime.
Day two will begin with three streams again; the intelligence stream will be looking at real-time intelligence from fast-moving entities. Counter terrorism and financial crime will be addressed in the following sessions.
Malware analysis in Windows, Mac and Linux memory will kick off the day for the digital forensics stream, followed by ElcomSoft discussing how to prevent sophisticated malware attacks, and then two talks about mobile forensics.
Darren Argyle from Markit will begin the cyber security stream with a talk about the human factor in computer security. This will be followed by a comparison of cyber risk management programs, then a talk from Robert Bond about dealing with the aftermath of a cyber breach. Mark Arena from Intel 471 will then discuss how to analyse the structure of cybercrime groups.
Following the talks, there will be a chapter meeting for OSIRA UK members, and workshops in mobile forensics and criminal investigation to round off the event.
