Detailed Agenda:

  • Where does it reside? Locally, LAN, WAN, cloud?

  • Who are we protecting the data from?

  • What the baddies do (mass phishing --> Advanced Persistent Threat / State Actor)

Introduction to Forensics:  

  • What is forensics, how is it different from incident response or legal e-discovery, or security monitoring or surveillance? 

  • What would organizations need to do to be “ready” to investigate a policy violation, respond to a litigation hold, or assess the damage from a security or privacy incident?

  • Cyber Insurance: what do the cover, what are the exemptions what is not covered? What can reduce your premiums?

  • How does digital forensics fit into criminal investigations, internal investigations, civil legal disputes, risk management, or the cyber incident response cycle?
