Interview With Jeff Hedlesky, Forensic Evangelist For Tableau Hardware, OpenText

Friday, January 10, 2020 (13:13:06)
Jeff, you've worked at OpenText and (prior to its acquisition) Guidance Software for nearly nine years. What attracted you to work here initially?

Digital forensics was in its infancy back when I was working for Oxford Semiconductor in the early 2000s. When two people I knew and respected in the computer industry, James Wiebe (founder of WiebeTech) and Robert Botchek (founder of Tableau) both independently began work on digital forensic write blockers, both based around one of our OxSemi components, I knew there was something special happening. I’m an (old) nerd, but I’m also an Eagle Scout, so when I found an industry which used a variety of cutting-edge technologies to help the good guys “do their best” to stop the bad guys, I was hooked.

Forensic Acquisition Of Modern Evidence

Thursday, January 09, 2020 (15:39:36)
Dr. Bradley Schatz presents a roadmap to what's changed in digital forensics at DFRWS EU 2019.

Bradley: OK, good afternoon. Thank you all for coming to this session. My name is Bradley Schatz, and today I would like to talk with you about a subject that I've spent the last decade or so focusing on, and that's pretty much forensic acquisition: something that we, as forensic practitioners, all overlook to some degree and think is a done story.

We all know what a forensic image is, and there's really not much new to learn in them. But a fair bit's been going on in the meantime, so I thought I'd talk with you today about what's changed in regard to forensic image formats, and the interplay between forensic imaging and the wider aspect of performing forensics in general.

Register For Webinar: Real-Time Corporate Investigations

Thursday, January 09, 2020 (10:25:23)
Employee misconduct and unethical behaviour can have devastating effects on a company, from loss of revenue, to reputational damage, the burden of paying settlement costs and resulting fines, additional regulation, and even total closure of the company. In the age of corporate scandal, where malicious individuals or groups put organisations' entire viability at stake, a multi-faceted, real-time approach to threat detection and investigation is critical.

Join this webinar to learn about common challenges facing corporate investigators, the impact of evolving and proliferating data, and why malicious insider actions are so difficult to detect. Plus, see a demo of the Nuix Investigation solution, where we'll cover how Nuix can:
- monitor and review user activity and behaviour,
- conduct incident remediation,
- perform endpoint search and seamless collection, and
- enable simultaneous, collaborative case analysis across teams and disciplines

...all in real time.

Date: 16 January 2020
Time: 12:00PM GMT

How To Use Apple Pattern-of-Life Data In Your Investigations

Wednesday, January 08, 2020 (15:26:46)
BlackLight and APOLLO: How to Use Apple Pattern-of-Life Data in Your Investigations

BlackLight's latest release, BlackLight 2019 R3, now has APOLLO framework built in as a plugin to make it even easier for investigators to get the most out of their data. Pattern-of-life data can be used in many types of investigations to get extremely detailed information from device users. What application was a user using three weeks ago? Where has the user been? Was the user walking, running, or sleeping at a given time? Was the user driving distracted, were they parked or moving? Querying and correlating the databases that keep track of these details can help examiners answer a myriad of investigative questions.

Interview With Jason Bailey, Director Of Product Management, OpenText

Wednesday, January 08, 2020 (15:14:02)
Jason, can you tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into digital forensics?

Absolutely. I started in the digital forensic industry in 2005 and a friend of mine started a company called Tableau LLC back at the time - not to be confused with Tableau Hardware. He convinced me to leave a stable job in IT security at a healthcare company to come help him grow the company. And the rest was history.

So I've been in the industry since then. We grew Tableau LLC, and he sold the company in 2010 to Guidance Software. And then just two years ago, Guidance Software was acquired by OpenText and now we're here.

Sarah Hargreaves, Director of International Training, AccessData

Tuesday, January 07, 2020 (15:49:25)
Sarah, tell us a bit about yourself. How did you begin your career, and what is your current position?

My career started when I was working in a legal practice. From a young age, I have always been interested in crimes, criminal process and the investigation of crime. In fact, I always wanted to be a lawyer. I started working in firms with criminal lawyers and was lucky to work in a department that was focused around serious crimes. Things got really interesting for me when computers and digital evidence were involved in offences; either in the commission of the crime or in the police investigations.

I worked on some high-profile cases at that time and I found the whole process of digital forensics incredibly interesting. I ended up going to a couple of training courses whilst I was working in the legal practice and realised that I had fallen in love with digital forensics.
