Digital Forensics - The Human Cost
- Lee Whitfield
- Tuesday, September 9th, 8:15pm - 9:15pm
Do digital forensics professionals truly understand the power that they wield? A single line in a statement or a report can have significant impact on many lives. The results of our investigations can lead to termination of employment, marriage, or freedoms. Targets of our investigations could lose property, businesses, and families. In some instances our findings may lead to the target developing health problems or, in the most drastic of cases, taking their own lives.
We have the power to change lives with only a few words, either written or spoken.
Lee Whitfield will provide case studies showing how digital forensics professionals have gotten it wrong in the past, how those instances caused real-life problems and how you can avoid them in the future.
Further, how are we, as analysts, able to protect ourselves from the adverse effects of the work that we conduct? When many in the field are exposed to graphic material, how does this affect our own behavior? How can we best cope with what we see on a regular basis? This talk will share some interesting points and potential coping mechanism.
