About the Program

Bob Osgood

Truxton Forensics

Remote work requirements. Reduced budgets. Fewer investigators. Today’s environment has created new challenges for LE and corporate investigators. Fear not. Today’s AWS and Azure cloud offerings can help you keep up with your workload and deliver sophisticated forensic analysis at a fraction of the cost of typical hardware, software, and storage investments required at your physical lab. This on-demand model can be accessed from the office or remote locations, and offers organizations a pay-as you go option that can be reduced or increased as workflow changes.

This talk/demonstration will discuss the basics of moving forensics to the cloud, examine the advantages of cloud forensics, and review the security/evidence considerations necessary to conduct investigations. We’ll also briefly run through a mock investigation from loading images to processing automated reports and visual timelines using the Truxton forensic platform.
