Forensics Technology Solutions for Litigation Support
Abstract: Protecting business interests requires companies to ensure their readiness to embrace potential disputes; class action settlements; litigation support for counsel or expert witnesses; arbitrations or special proceedings; potential misconduct, etc. The advent and evolution of information age has brought new challenges for the companies who have to deal with large amount of information produced; exchanged; processed; and stored in routine business processes. As a result, demand of forensics technology solutions for litigation support has considerably increased in the last few years due to the sprawling number of high-tech crimes and misdemeanours targeting businesses.
This talk will provide an overview of the challenges faced by the companies to tackle crimes involving information and communication technologies. A detailed insight into the forensic technology solutions currently used for the litigation support will be presented. These solutions cover evidence collection and preservation; electronic discovery and data analytics; consolidation of the findings in a format that is acceptable by courts of law. The implication of data protection legislations in collection, processing, and preservation of personal data will also be highlighted. Finally, a range of emerging challenges of this field will be presented to discuss their impact on the future of forensic technology solutions for litigation support.

Network Device Forensics
Abstract: The goal of this presentation is to raise awareness about the measures you can take to improve the success of network forensics.
Imagine that a rogue laptop connects to your corporate WiFi and is able to access the Internet via your corporate proxy server. Let us assume that your WiFi is protected by a pre-shared key, but that this rogue laptop is owned by a former employee. Will you detect this? And will you be able to trace back to the former employee?
A foreign competitor hires a tech savvy criminal to install a trojaned operating system on your edge router. This trojan facilitates access to your corporate network for unauthorized persons by tampering with the authentication control logic. Will you detect the trojaned router?
These two examples represent two common classes of forensic investigations where forensic evidence needs to be collected from network devices. In the first example, network devices contain evidence of the network traffic that flowed through them. In the second example, network devices have been compromised and forensic evidence needs to be lifted from them.
