About this talk

The release of Apple’s newest update to its operating system, iOS 16, delivers new features to iOS that allow users to alter and possibly even delete messages after they have been sent. These new capabilities have existed in other applications for years and are nothing new to investigators in mobile forensics. Disappearing messages and crawl-back functionality in email and chat messages have been around for quite some time. These cloak-and-dagger security capabilities are common in third-party applications used by criminals, security-centric agencies, and governments across the globe. However, with iOS 16, a new wave of chat manipulation and security features has gone mainstream, giving millions of users access to these more contemporary features. iOS has also created new challenges for forensic and legal professionals trying to conduct corporate investigations, eDiscovery, and compliance efforts on behalf of their organizations and clients. This hour-long webcast includes expert descriptions and a discussion of new iOS features and their impact on mobile device data, from device preparation for mobile collection and preservation to mobile device discovery. The distinguished panel discusses: + Apple iOS 16: The Implications for Legal Professionals + Mobile Device Data Collection: Planning and Preparation + Preservation Considerations: Tactics and Tripwires + Spoliation: Concerns, Challenges, and Commentary Expert Panelists John Wilson ACE, AME, CBE, Chief Information Security Officer and President of Forensics, HaystackID Todd Tabor Vice President of Forensics, HaystackID Rene Novoa Director of Forensics, HaystackID
