Backup Tape Forensics
07-20-2010 - Mr. Michael Harvey
Texas Regional Infrastructure Security Conference
Mr. Michael Harvey, Manager of Forensics Research at Avansic, will be presenting a breakout session on "Backup Tape Forensics" at TRISC 2010.

This presentation summarizes the main challenges to magnetic tape storage forensics and includes two case studies that required backup tape analysis. The ability to perform digital forensics investigations on storage tapes is an important tool in any forensics professionalís arsenal, and a thorough understanding of the situations and techniques where these storage devices will appear can help alleviate some of the problems with their forensic acquisition.

The Texas Regional Infrastructure Security Conference (TRISC) is a 2-day non-profit conference sponsored by a cooperative of working professionals. Our mission is to provide an educational forum focused on the core challenges in the Information Security industry. Each year professionals from across Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana meet to share experiences, learn and network. TRISC 2010 will be hosted at the Embassy Suites Outdoor World in Grapevine, Texas.
