DFIR 101 - Clones, drones, & prison phones
10-14, 09:30–10:20 (US/Eastern), Room 300

A couple of years ago, I stumbled into the world of law enforcement Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR). This talk will share my journey into and discovery of a new niche of IT I didn't know existed.
Come for an introduction to the hardware, software, processes, and people of DFIR.
Learn how those pieces work together to gather data, review, build a timeline, and put the bad guys behind bars.
Leave with the curiosity to head home, image your phone/computer, and start digging around in your own data.

Mike has spent many years in the MSP world helping businesses protect and grow their IT systems. Over that time, I've fixed mice, laid out IT roadmaps, and managed systems & tools that do the behind-the-scenes heavy lifting. My first computer was an Apple IIc clone, I learned programming on the Atari 2600, and I've braved an AS/400. Away from the keyboard, I enjoy time with my kids, geocaching, and wood-turning.
