An overview of digital forensics with a focus on multimedia forensics.


Dr A. Ryad Soobhany


Digital forensics (DF) is the process of recovery and investigation of digital evidence and is interdisciplinary covering topics from Computer Science, Forensics and Law. Together with incident management (IM), it is facilitated through a collaboration that connects academia with law enforcement agencies (LEA) and industry.

This talk will give an overview of digital forensics with emphasis on multimedia forensics. It will also present how DF and IM apply to a cybersecurity Blue Team responsible for ensuring the effectiveness of implemented measures.
