Digital Forensics and Data Finding

Presented at Diana Initiative 2020 Virtual, Aug. 22, 2020, 3 p.m. (60 minutes)

New technologies help us be more productive by remembering what we've done, where we've been, what files we've opened, people we've contacted, and things we didn't even know we wanted help remembering. By identifying what artifacts are left behind by technologies we use and create, we can better control our own information and that of our users. This talk presents digital forensics and the world of the endpoint device. How can we tell what breadcrumbs are left by doing everyday tasks on our computers and cell phones? How effective can users be at clearing their tracks and deleting evidence of what they've done? In this introductory level talk, the field of digital forensics (DFIR) will be introduced. Attendees will learn about the kinds of data that can be recovered on computers and cell phones by digital forensic examiners.
