Reducing Data Acquisition and Analysis by 50% Using Optimal Hardware
As the trusted solutions provider for digital forensics, electronic discovery and consulting services, Silicon Forensics build customized forensic tools by utilizing the latest technology and best practice methodology to deliver the best of breed forensic solutions. As a long standing member of HTCIA and committed sponsor of HTCIA International Conference, we hope to share our best practices on how we build an optimal forensic computer platform with the regional members. In this presentation, we plan to share with the regional HTCIA chapters the decision making process we go through in building an optimal forensic computer platform that meets the standards of today’s forensic examiners and investigators. We will start by sharing the latest hardware and software technology trends including process roadmap, memory, storage, RAID and other forensic acquisition tools. Next, we will share with the audience some of the challenges faced by today’s forensic examiners like processing time, platform expandability and data accessibility. With that in mind, we will present how we choose the right hardware technology to address these challenges like SSD RAID, I/O capabilities and others. Finally, we will share a sample case study of a forensic project using an optimal forensic computing platform.
