More and more data is in the cloud. This will only increase. But what is the cloud? Where is the cloud? How do I get there from here? All of these questions lead to a unique problem. How to get the data out of the cloud in an incident response or investigation. The cloud is not any one thing, and neither is how the data is stored or accessed. This talk will address many types of cloud, as well as the myriad of ways that the cloud can be accessed. The bottom line is that it can be done with the proper techniques, information, and legal support.

Speaker Bio

Kevin Ripa

An investigator at heart, Kevin Ripa bought his first computer as a tool for writing reports for his private investigation agency. As he worked through typical user issues, the "why" of what was going wrong in his machine kept him up at night. So Kevin turned his investigative skills toward his computer and quickly became fascinated by the world inside of it. Now a 25-year veteran of the digital investigations field, Kevin's enthusiasm has not waned: "IT security and digital forensics still inspire me every day, and I can't wait to wake up in the morning and get to work!"
