Cyber Reconnaissance & Computer Forensics

Before an attack: Why is it so easy to attack you? How do attackers prepare their campaigns? Why is it so easy to hack you? What can you do to defend yourself?

After an attack: Much more than just data recovery, computer forensics applies investigation and analysis techniques to gather and preserve evidence from a particular computing device, suitable for presentation in a court of law. It has kept pace with evolving technologies in hardware, firmware, software, networks, mobile device and clouds, and IT laws.
