Digital Forensics

Northwest Academy

Northwest Academy 1208 SW 13th Ave, 2nd floor Portland, OR (map)

The meeting will be in the Century building at 1208 SW 13th Ave, on the 2nd floor. When coming up 13th, there is an entrance to a surface lot behind our building. We're in the 2-story building (not the 5-story building). The lot should be empty at meeting time. Park anywhere except in the auction winner’s spot. If the the lot is full, use the lot behind the 5-story building.



News today is thick with stories of government agencies trying to find digital evidence of wrongdoing: interrogating mobile phones for evidence, tracing emails to find a stalker or looking at a killer’s search history to discover motives. Digital forensic analysis now plays a pivotal role in both corporate and legal investigations. However, few outside of the industry understand the intricacies involved in a forensic undertaking — the capabilities and limitations of the forensics investigative process, the role of the digital forensic investigator or the extent of the laws governing these actions.

In this session, Tiberius Hefflin, Founder of Go Boldly, will delve into the basics of digital forensics. Attendees will learn what digital forensics draws from forensic science, how the law informs what a forensic investigator is ethically able to do, the many uses of digital forensics, evidence collection methods, anti-forensics methods, what the incident response process should look like and how they can maintain crime scene integrity until investigators can carry out an assessment.

While the subject is dense and could certainly be expanded, this introduction is aimed at those new to digital forensics with the goal of providing a solid foundational understanding which can be built upon with self directed learning.

Trigger Warning: Violent Crime, Child Abuse, Murder

While the talk will not cover these topics in great detail, Tiberius Hefflin will be discussing real crimes that have been solved due to digital forensics.

Join us for a great presentation and discussion! We'll have snacks, and there will be an opportunity for networking afterwards. We hope to see you there!

Schedule: 6:00 PM: Doors 6:10 PM: Introductions and news 6:15 PM: Presentation 7:15 PM: Q&A 7:30 PM: Wrap up and networking
