Participant Level: Intermediate
Duration: Full Day (9am - 4pm)
So you have heard about digital forensics and are intrigued. You've watched NCIS and wondered what it would be like to be Abbey pulling apart hard drives and bringing the winning hand against crime. So you then delight at the announcement of a DFIR CTF and clear your diary for the weekend, excitement and anticipation driving you, you download the evidence, open the challenges and then everything becomes unstuck as you simply do not know where to begin. There are so many tools and they all look so complicated. You close your laptop and head to the couch for a beer instead.
Well we are here to save your liver and help you kick start that DFIR career.
Digital forensics is the application of scientific investigatory techniques to digital crimes and attacks. The fundamentals of digital forensics are often not known, or overlooked during an incident and important evidence can easily be overwritten and lost. Shanna is a long term digital forensics practitioner with years of experience and stories to share on what to do, and what not to do.
During this workshop you will be introduced to the fundamentals of digital forensics, including artefact collection, preservation and analysis. Participants will learn how to start a digital investigation using open source or freely available tools to demonstrate the theory and challenges will be provided to participants to practice along.
We'll utilise freely available CTF questions and evidence to make it accessible for all, and provide a jump start on how to get involved in DFIR challenges and events. Mostly we want to provide a way to get started with DFIR and get you hooked too.
At the end of this training, the attendees will be have:
