The Ottawa Chapter of the High Technology Crime Investigation Association (HTCIA) welcomes you to an Open house and Training event on October 12, 2017 from 08:00 to 12:00. We are hosting this event to introduce the HTCIA to the greater Ottawa investigative and security community. If you have friends or colleagues who may be interested in learning about us and taking advantage of some free training, please forward this email to them.

Continental breakfast will be provided, followed by a short course taught by Patrick Malcolm of NetRunner Inc., a Canadian cyber defence company.

Evidence on the Wire by Patrick Malcolm

Network breaches happen daily in the digital age, so it is imperative that we stand vigilant in our fight against persistent network threats, while supporting standards that safeguard data privacy and enhance the effective
communication of incidents via breach notification and identified intrusion indicators.

Digital forensics investigations have a variety of applications. Network forensics is a sub-branch of digital forensics relating to the monitoring and analysis of computer network traffic for the purposes of information gathering, legal evidence, and/or intrusion detection. Network forensics is the capture and analysis of network events in order to discover the source of security incidents or network faults. Although many concepts of network forensics are similar to those of any other digital forensic investigation, the network presents many nuances that require special attention.

It is an unfortunate fact that both private and public sector networks are under constant attack and every organization connected to the internet is a high value target for network intrusion and exploitation.

  • This practical session will cover monitoring a network for anomalous traffic and identifying intrusions.
  • Network Forensic Cases
  • Analysis using only network-based evidence
  • Determine the original source of compromise
  • Identify the attacker’s actions while in the victim’s environment
  • Confirm what data the attacker stole from the victim.

Who should attend?

Digital forensics investigators from law enforcement, military, private consultancies and government who wish to expand their knowledge and practical skills in the recovery of evidence from computer
networks.

Plan to attend. Bring a friend who may be interested in HTCIA.
