What Changes Do We Need To See In eDiscovery? Part I

Monday, October 07, 2019 (14:38:33)
by Harold Burt-Gerrans

I’m approaching this multi-part article from a software development point of view, as I believe many of the following issues have been brought about by the evolution of eDiscovery software following the procedures used by handling boxes of paper. Historically, my opinion has been that eDiscovery software providers have engineered new features into the legacy data structures that modeled scanning environments without stepping back and determining that there should be an overhaul to those legacy data structures to adapt to the ever changing ESI world.

Much of what I will discuss revolves around the handling of duplicative data, with deviations into the future of eDiscovery review platform structures and processes. This initial set of points just gets us rolling with some of the basics, so Part 1 is a little boring but I’ll build from there. And occasionally, I might rant about an issue or two…

Learn The Latest Digital Forensics Trends At OpenText™ Enfuse 2019

Monday, October 07, 2019 (11:53:20)

If you work in digital forensics or information security, keeping up with all the latest threats and technologies can feel like a full-time job. It’s an area that’s growing ever-more complex, thanks to the proliferation of devices we use at work, at home and elsewhere: mobile phones, wearables, voice-powered assistants, Internet of Things sensors, smart appliances, and more. Every one of these devices collects, processes or stores large volumes of data that can be critical in an investigation, whether it’s for a corporation looking into the theft of intellectual property or a law enforcement agency investigating an online child abuse case. This means the task of finding the right data is becoming increasingly complicated. Beyond technology challenges, there are also regulatory ones. New requirements such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation or the pending California Consumer Privacy Act are having a big impact on how organizations handle data privacy and security. As a result, internal forensic examiners’ jobs are getting harder.

Interview With Christian Hummert, Director Of Digital Forensics, ZITiS Germany

Monday, October 07, 2019 (09:16:00)
Christian, tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into digital forensics.

Right now, I’m 40 years old. I studied computer science and philosophy when I was younger, before completing a post-graduate course (PhD) in bioinformatics. This led me to a job with the State Police of Thuringia, which is one of the federal states of Germany. I worked as an expert in digital forensics and analyzed lots of hard disks and phones. Later I concentrated on the forensics of embedded devices, especially in car forensics.

In 2015, I was appointed professor for digital forensics at the Mittweida University of Applied Science. In 2018, I moved on to take on the exciting new role of the director of digital forensics at the ZITiS, the Central Office for Information Technology in the Security Sector.

Investigating Kik Messenger In Oxygen Forensic® Detective

Wednesday, October 02, 2019 (06:50:56)
Kik is a free instant messaging app, which works on iPhones, Androids and Kindles. As of May 2016, Kik Messenger had approximately 300 million registered users, and was used by approximately 40% of United States teenagers. Of its 15 million monthly active users, 57% are in the 13-24 age bracket. The functionality of the app is not limited to text messages alone as the users can communicate via video calls and find groups according to their interests, often meeting new people there. It also received dubious accolades for being the most convenient teenage sexting app due to its anonymity (the app asks for the user’s name and email address, which could be fictitious, and the user does not have to supply a phone number).

This type of activity and popularity should not go unnoticed...
