January 15, 2018 – Data Recovery & Forensics

January 15, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Triage Imaging & ‘Must Have’ Enterprise Data

About our topic:

This presentation will cover two extremely important, but often overlooked areas in your Enterprise.

How do I know they are overlooked? Because I see it every day. You are tasked with looking into the activity on a computer. You don’t have a forensic capability, or don’t have the time or funds for a full forensic exam. How about reaching into a computer with a step by step guide to extract only the 1% of the data where 99% of all evidence lives? And extract it in minutes, not days. Then you find your subject actual destroyed evidence. Volume Shadow Copy to the rescue, to get it back and prove what was done. What? No VSC? Why not? We will also talk about a few settings you MUST have in your Enterprise that most do not have configured or enabled. The best part of this is that all tools presented are free.
