— lecture and book signing, Cyber Forensics: From Data to Digital Evidence

Very organized criminals, terrorists, information thieves, nation states, interlopers, and even disgruntled employees are using today’s technologies and looking to the evolving technologies of tomorrow, to successfully circumvent controls, commit fraud, steal data, launder money, gain imbalanced market advantages, compromise strategic resources, disrupt workflows, engage in cyber bullying and stalking activities, all leading to an erosion of our national and personal sense of security.

These individuals utilize the ever increasing power and breadth of technology, to carry out their objectives, undermining, attacking and using these same technologies, which governments, businesses, and individuals depend upon for a daily existence.

Traditional criminal forensics analysts use among other tools… fingerprint, blood splatter and ballistic analysis, DNA typing, and forensic pathology to gather and present evidence, which may be used to establish guilt or innocence.

Cyber forensic investigators dissect the repository of a computer’s memory using HEX editors and write blockers, examining volumes, partitions, boot records and FAT Tables; to identify, collect, preserve, examine and evaluate data, data representing potential electronic evidence. Evidence, which is used, in part, to determine intent, culpability, motive, means, methods and loss, resulting from the use and involvement of information technologies in perpetrating a crime.

Dr. Marcella examines the origins of digital data, the role of binary and hexadecimal numbers in identifying potential evidence, how digital data become electronic evidence, and the overall process of cyber forensics investigations.
