Offensive Digital Forensics

  • Alissa Torres
  • Wednesday, February 19th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Network intruders are utilizing increasingly more sophisticated offensive forensic techniques in order to parse remote systems, obtain credentials, and locate and steal "target data", all while flying under the radar of modern detection systems. Incident responders and forensic examiners must be able to unravel the actions and intent of the adversary on their own networks in order to halt their progress and anticipate future campaigns. From this session, attendees will gain a deeper understanding of today's offensive forensic strategies, how adversaries determine where key sensitive data and target individuals reside and, most importantly, how to detect these techniques utilizing Windows and file system artifacts.
