It seems as if everyone today uses social media: Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn, Google, among others. All of these tools allow us to communicate in unprecedented ways—with a few key strokes, mouse clicks or screen taps. We take the instantaneous nature of these forms of communication for granted and forget that posts, updates, blogs and Tweets can become a fertile source of electronic evidence. This program will outline the types of social networking evidence that a technician can recover from a computer or hand-held device, including chat sessions, e-mail and status updates. The presenters will demonstrate the practical application of computer forensics to show that recovering evidence from a local computer can be more cost effective than serving a social networking company with a subpoena. In addition, the presenters will share examples of what you can recover, drawing from recent projects.
