With the growing popularity of different types of electronic devices, the necessity to have positive control of the electronic data is not only a legal requirement but also an ethical obligation. The question is: how do you know you are protecting your electronic data? As time passes, judicial systems all around the world are accepting more electronic evidence instead of traditional ways as papers. This is an ongoing process with essential changes from country to Country, State to State, and from Court to Court. Business expectations for availability are rising, and recovery time objectives (RTOs) for more and more applications are nearing zero.
Digital Forensics deals with the assessment of electronic assets, to grasp, investigate, analyze, and determine what has been happening in your information technology systems; including mobile devices, mainly when you have some suspicions about the occurrence of any abuse, crime, (fraud), or just a simple intrusion in your systems.
Interpreting electronic data in raw format requires extensive theoretical preparation, (please note that I said theoretical preparation, intentionally), and proven skills, especially in the fields of electronics, physics, mathematics, and information technology.
Cybersecurity is under much pressure, but even nowadays, the topic of digital forensics is still unattended in the vast majority of the organizations. The questions to ask yourself are:
What can I do to discover whatever happened in my system with exactitude, to prove that someone has been misbehaving or how and who put my company's information at risk?
How to collect specific pieces of evidence, (never-ever general artifacts), to prove any "wrongdoings" or attacks.
Phishing or hunting, or both?
In this live webinar, we are going to talk about possible responses to those topics.
