Macintosh Forensics
10-19-2011 - Dr. Gavin W. Manes
The Computer Forensics Show
Dr. Manes will give an hourlong presentation on Macintosh Forensics at the Computer Forensics Show on Wednesday October 19th. The talk will begin at 11:25 am and will take place at the Bentley Conference Center, room ITA #7.

Working with Macintosh computers is an increasingly necessary tool in the forensic investigator’s arsenal. But the Macintosh operating system has proved a very unique beast with it’s own set of challenges, and therefore requires a body of specialized knowledge to tackle it effectively. To this end the presentation will give a brief overview of how to “crack the cases” for some of these machines and retrieve hard drives for imaging. Beyond the traditional methods, instructions will be given on some alternative means of acquiring images, when hardware, time, or other circumstances require clever solutions be employed.

The Computer Forensics Show, November 1-2, 2010 at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco, is the don't miss event of the year for all IT Security, Legal, Accounting, Risk Management, Executive and Law Enforcement professionals.

Corporate IT, Law Enforcement and Information Security Pros are often required to perform computer forensics activities on their jobs.
