Adam’s talk will discuss some real-life examples of carrying out digital forensics and incident response where oversight, policy or technology got in the way in ways the client hadn’t considered. These examples will show how easy it is to be in a position where the data you need and expected to have simply isn’t available. Maybe the logs rolled over quicker than expected, maybe a malicious user was able to install their own software, or maybe the technology was so secure it wouldn’t let you get at the data. The talk discusses how Context can help, how sometimes nobody can help, and maybe how we can all prevent it from happening in the first place. The short answer: plan it properly, test it thoroughly.
