Mobile Forensics Hands-On Workshop

There is a dangerous shortage of cybersecurity workers in the United States. Every year in the U.S. there are 128,000 openings for Information Security Analysts, but only 88,000 workers currently employed in those positions – a talent shortfall of 40,000 workers for cybersecurity’s largest job (source: http://cyberseek.org/). The exponential growth in mobile devices, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the exchange of information online has significantly increased cybercrime. As such, there is a growing demand for expertise in mobile forensics. This hands-on workshop will focus on mobile devices as sources of evidence in forensic investigations. We will discuss the legal aspects of mobile forensic investigations and demonstrate Paraben’s Electronic Evidence Examination (E3) software to examine digital evidence, included deleted data, from mobile devices. Although not required, participants should bring their own laptop if they would like to try the software.

Targeted Attendees
The target audience for this workshop is anyone interested in teaching or learning more about mobile forensics.
