What is Computer Forensics?
Electronic devices are extremely commonplace. As time goes on, more and more people not only have a device, but use multiple ones daily. People use them to enhance their social life with apps like Twitter, Facebook, or eHarmony. They keep schedules, communication, and other important data on them. Add to that all of the information that applications and companies like Google collect, and you could learn a ton about a person you’d never met just by accessing the information on their device. Collecting information from a device for use in a court of law is the purpose of computer forensics.Read More
I was particularly excited to write about cryptanalysis this month because I was fascinated with secret messages, spys, and the like when I was young. Encyclopedia Brown, Nancy Drew, lemon juice ink, pig latin, secret codes… I loved it all. With computers’ ability to solve equations at mind blowing speeds, software encryption goes beyond just replacing letters with numbers to create a code- way, way beyond.
If you’ve kept up with our last few blogs on security, you know there are multiple ways your system can be compromised. You will also know that as technology improves, so do hackers’ abilities. New software, hardware, and best practices are coming out all of the time to thwart attacks. It’s a large amount of information to keep up with. This is where system admins come in.Read More
