Crimes very often left footprints on electronic devices, from computers, mobile phones, smart televisions, smart household appliances and smart watches. Digital Forensics is the growing profession to investigate with information from digital devices. This talk helps non-experts to understand what is Digital Forensics and the areas it touches on, including Incident Response and Investigations. Understanding this topic help us to avoid being a cybercrime victim and what to do to preserve evidence if something bad happens to us. Phil is also going to explain the career structure in Digital Forensics and how one can enter this profession.
