Join us for the next installment of the SANS-APAC webcast series where we will provide a technical look at Geolocation Forensics.

A wide range of artifacts exist that can be used to put a laptop or mobile device in a particular place at a particular time. Geolocation artifacts are permeating operating systems, applications and file formats, giving forensic analysts new resources. As an example, the new HTML 5 standard has geolocation baked in, leading to an explosion of new geo-aware web applications. Including these artifacts in your investigations adds a new dimension of information -- providing critical data on who, what, when AND where.
