Forensics Readiness

Instructor: Glenn S. Dardick

The workshop is a hands-on introduction to cyber forensics for IT Security personnel and Incident Response Teams. The workshop will cover where artifacts lie and how to forensically retrieve them. More importantly the workshop will cover forensics readiness – knowing what can be available leads to being prepared prior to a breach or other incident – instead of after the breach or other incident wishing you were prepared.

Topics will include the following:

  • Media Forensics
  • Network Forensics
  • Timeline Forensics
  • Artifacts
  • Tools, Tools, and More Tools
  • Building a Forensics Workstation and Toolkit
  • Certifications and Training
  • Legal and Best Practices – Forensics Readiness
