With the increasing importance of privacy and security in today’s business world coupled with the advancement and acceptance of transaction technologies ranging from blockchain and cryptocurrencies to non-fungible tokens (NFTs), today’s digital forensics professionals are behind the proverbial power curve if they do not have a basic understanding of these emerging technologies. They are further behind that curve if they do not understand the investigational considerations and challenges of these technologies as they move from aspirational advancements to accepted and practical business tools.
During this expert session led by two of the world’s leading cybersecurity, information governance, and legal discovery digital forensics experts, presentation attendees learned the foundational basics of blockchain, cryptocurrencies, and NFTs, discussed an examination of raw data on blockchain ledgers, research specific addresses and transactions as part of an investigational process, and considered NFTs from an investigational and eDiscovery perspective.
