HEA STEM 2016 Conference, Nottingham, 28-29 January 2016
Project ConSoLiDatE ran an interactive workshop to present the challenges of using industry standard technologies in open learning environments. The focus of this session was Cyber Security and Digital Forensic technologies. However, other areas with similar challenges were welcome to share their views. Title of the presentation was Challenges of using commercial tools in developing open flexible learning environments for Digital Forensic courses: sharing experience and good practices. New trends in the higher education sector especially pertinent to the use of commercial tools were the centre of discussions. Their pros and cons were discussed around a number of case studies. Project ConSoLiDatE presented two case studies whereas three other case studies were shared by the audience in the interactive discussions.
Project ConSoLiDatE has produced a number of learning resources. These resources were used to deliver the essential knowledge and skills to the students of a variety of academic programs at the partner universities.
Cryptoparty – Cybersecurity Bootcamp at QMUL, 21 March 2015
Project ConSoLiDatE ran this Cybersecurity Bootcamp at QMUL to provide essential knowledge of cybersecurity technologies. It was a hands-on session where first of all, security awareness among the law students were raised through different scenarios and demos. They were than taught how to use appropriate tools and their settings to protect digital assets and identities.
Cyber Security Incident Management
This talk provides details of a Cyber Security Incident Management program. Different phases of pre and post security breaches are elaborated together with a set of best practices that can help running such program efficiently.
Digital Device Forensics
This talk covers Digital Device Forensics. A range of information that can be extracted from memory devices is presented together with the checklist of the required set-up. A number of scenarios depicting different combination of available information (such as disk size) and how these information can be extracted are presented in this talk.
File Signature Analysis
This talk covers File Signature Analysis. Distinction between a file extension and file signature is elaborated together with the use of EnCase Tool to analyse a File’s signature to identify its true contents.
This talk covers Mobile Forensics. A range of information that can be extracted from mobile devices is presented. A number of scenarios depicting different combination of available information of a mobile device and how these devices can be extracted is covered in this talk.
This talk provides an insight into different aspects of Network Forensics. The particular emphasis is on the Internet Forensics including Email Forensics.
Legal and Regulatory Requirements
This talk provides an overview of the legal and regulatory requirements that a digital forensics analyst should be aware of. An example case and its supporting conceptual description is presented for the group discussions.
Forensic Investigation Reporting
This talk covers the topic of investigation reporting. Participants learnt how to document their digital forensic analysis findings. ACFE (Association of Certified Fraud Examiners) guidelines were presented as a good practice. The reporting feature of EnCase v7 was also explored in this session.
Expert Witness Testimony
