In "Forensics Matters in Security: Full Breach Visibility, RATs and the Future of Investigations," Shomo will re-examine the Cyber Kill Chain, illustrating that only forensics techniques provide full breach visibility, and why digital forensics for incident response (DFIR) is growing in size and influence. He'll discuss attacks in recent news and the details of typical hacker activity. Participants will play with some popular Remote Access Trojans (RATS), and then detail the forensic artifacts left at each stage of the Cyber Kill Chain. Shomo will also cover the next era of forensic technology being built on new endpoint access technologies: active agents, continuous agents, as well as network based agent-less access. And he'll relate back why these new technologies will be key in gaining full breach visibility at scale.

Shomo is a veteran Guidance Software architect, R&D manager, cybersecurity strategist, and Dark Reading columnist. He is a frequent speaker at security conferences such as ISC2, HP Protect and EnFuse™ (CEIC).

Shomo joined the Guidance Software research group in 2006, which launched the industry's first incident response solution, then spent years managing and architecting cybersecurity and forensic solutions in R&D. Today he manages technology alliance partnerships EnCase® open security platform.

Also on August 31, Stephen Cardoos will conduct a review for those taking the EnCase Certified Examiner (EnCe) exam.
