Suggestions on DFIR topics for my upcoming Msc Cybersecurity thesis
Hi Iam currently in my last year of my Master studies in cybersecurity my favourite course has been the DFIR course so now Iam aiming to do my Master thesis in the subject. However, I find it quite difficult to find an interesting topic that is relevant and up to date.
Would love to get some assistance from people in the industry.
I've gone through the same thought process recently. Some angles I considered but didn't end up choosing were:
- Investigating the challenges of recovering evidence from ephemeral apps like Snapchat or Signal where messages are designed to disappear
- IR automation to reduce response dwell time by integrating intelligence feeds, playbooks and SOAR tools
- Blockchain forensics, identifying wallet owners, decentralized apps, evidence on mobile device apps that sort of stuff
Hopefully these give you some inspiration!
