Social Media Forensics and OSINT

Socia media forensics and other effective techniques for conducting digital social media investigations. It will also cover the importance of the data collected from social media for forensic investigation. In this era, our digital devices are connected to the Internet and constantly upload users’ personal details onto cyberspace. Further, in the said topic it will be discussed on how an investigator can investigate this information? How to collaborate evidence with the victim and the perpetrator?


ASINT (All Source Intelligence) which is a single source/platform composed of multiple intel sources and helps in crime investigation.

Author of the book "Incident Response with Threat Intelligence"

Investigating cybersecurity incidents using intelligence-based threat hunting techniques.

With the constant evolution of cyber threats, developing an incident response capability using tools and methodologies to identify and contain threats is indispensable for any organization.

The integration of threat hunting procedures using intelligence in the identification, containment and eradication stages of the incident response cycle is an important differentiator to reduce the impact of a cyberattack.

In this talk, I’ll show you how to proactively respond and investigate different advanced attacks by presenting use cases and demonstration videos.

Disk Images are Gamblers and Virtualization is Vegas

While there are many obvious benefits to interacting with disk images running in virtual machines, there are less obvious (but no less important) benefits if you truly appreciate the incredible control you have over a disk image running in a virtual machine. Attendees of this presentation will be exposed to these less obvious benefits via a combination of lecture and demonstrations. While Arsenal Image Mounter will be used to demonstrate launching Windows domain controllers and workstations into virtual machines to unlock secrets on workstations without any credentials, bypassing the Windows Data Protection API, and more, some of the concepts discussed during this presentation will apply regardless of the particular tools being used.
