This article is a recap of some of the main highlights from Techno Security TX 2018, which took place in San Antonio, Texas from the 17th-19th September.
The conference had four tracks: forensics; information security; audit / risk management; and investigations, along with sponsor demos. Forensic Focus attended the forensics and investigations tracks during the event.
Magnet Forensics’ Jessica Hyde opened the conference with a discussion on the proliferation of devices. With 20 billion connected devices projected to be online by 2020, this is a growing concern in the industry. And considering that the results of our latest survey show that data triage is one of the biggest challenges investigators face, it’s certainly a topic that requires attention. Hyde also mentioned the importance of verification and validation in the industry.
