Applying Forensic Engineering Principles to Incident Response

  • Jason Jordaan
  • Tuesday, March 24th, 6:00pm - 7:00pm

"Computing systems are essentially engineering constructs, and as such computing is often as much science as it is engineering. In most incident response engagements, the aim is to find out what happened, what went wrong, and remediate the incident. The approach is traditionally investigative. While we often find out what happened and how it happened, we often overlook root cause analysis, especially when the incident was occurred because of a failure or weakness in the system itself.

Forensic engineering has well developed methodologies in the physical world to identify root cause analysis in the build environment, to identify material failures and other weaknesses that lead to an event. By understanding these forensic engineering methodologies and being able to apply these to incident response, we can gain a deeper level of insight into the systemic weaknesses and failures that have contributed to a security incident, and be much better equipped to harden and improve our systems."
