Giving Back In DFIR

Friday, July 20, 2018 (08:38:05)
by Jessica Hyde, Magnet Forensics

A few months back I was on my way to BSides NoVa, having a conversation with someone competing in the CTF about where his team would donate the prize money to if they won. I suggested some organizations related to helping young people learn about Information Security. A few hours later, I was relaying the story to a friend and she mentioned that she wasn’t aware of many of the groups that I was referencing. At that point, I realized that information needed to be shared.

A few months later I was at BSidesRoc and heard an incredible keynote by Matt Mitchell: Practical Security: Real World Lessons. In this presentation, Matt talked about a gamut of ways that Information Security professionals could use their skills to help others. He spoke about work that he and other hackers do that has meaning in different ways. I was inspired and started looking for ways that we can use our skills as Digital Forensic professionals to give back.

Thursday, July 19, 2018 (11:52:10)
Oxygen Forensics has released a maintenance update to Oxygen Forensic® Detective v. 10.3.2 to add support within Oxygen Forensic® Cloud Extractor for the latest Apple security standards protecting iCloud account data. Recent changes made by Apple to its security standards halted extractions of data from iCloud accounts by DFIR experts, resulting in incomplete case files in legal proceedings and investigations.

Now, Oxygen Forensics customers using Oxygen Forensic® Detective may fully resume their investigations involving Apple devices and accounts. In addition to support for the latest iCloud protocols, v10.3.2 includes support for iOS 12, currently in testing by a beta community.

Interview With Tina Wu, DPhil Cyber Security Student, University of Oxford

Thursday, July 19, 2018 (09:47:30)
Tina, you're a DPhil student in Cyber Security at the University of Oxford. What was it that first sparked your interest in digital forensics and cyber security?

I first became interested in forensics when in college, I have always had an interest in science and law subjects and found forensic science a good combination of these.

I found the CSI programs fascinating and this encouraged me to take my degree in Forensic Science.

Whilst at university my interest in computing developed when I built my own PC and setup a home network, this prompted me to undertake a master's in Digital Forensics and computer security.

Interview With Alexander Poelma, Director Of Business Development, AccessData

Wednesday, July 11, 2018 (07:19:42)
Congratulations on your new position at AccessData! Prior to joining the company, you worked as a Forensic ICT Specialist at Fiscale inlichtingen-en opsporingsdienst (FIOD)—the Dutch agency responsible for investigating potential economic, fiscal and financial fraud nationwide. That must have been fascinating work! Can you describe your focus with the agency and the type of investigations you were managing?

Yes, it was very interesting work. I was with the FIOD for eight and a half years, specializing in supporting the investigations team with their digital investigations. Because of the diversity of the type of investigations, I often helped the teams with more complex digital forensics and assisted with searches at larger companies.
