Talk 1: How to Succeed in the Business of Detecting Data Exfiltration
Dr. G.S. Graham (University of Toronto) will entertain and dazzle us on how, ‘Stealing IP and PI and other initials by copying is a growth industry”. When done by an insider who would normally have the authority to access the information, it is difficult to detect. Based on research by Jonathan Grier, G.S Graham will address forensics / file system analysis to identify this type of theft, even where there are no apparent artefacts for a copying operation (even in the Windows Registry).   Using cutting edge data forensics techniques, he will provide an overview of how to detect this major source of data leakage.

Talk 2:   Your Digital Legacy – or – An Electron by Any Other Name
A s our lives become more and more intertwined with the Web, the Cloud, social media and smart phones, so too does the administrative complexity of dealing with passwords, tokens, files, correspondence…   You know how hard it is to keep on top of it all!
Now think about getting hit by a bus! Think about your loved ones trying to access your LinkedIn profile to tell the world you are dead. Think of all those BitCoins lying around on your hard drive that no one knows about – or your credit balance at Poker.com (you wish).

  • EBay power seller? Have you paid your taxes?
  • Transferred some money offshore and forgot to tell anyone?
  • Fabulous domain name you registered in 1996 coming up for renewal?
  • Having an affair for the last 20 years?

Your Digital Legacy is becoming more and more complicated to deal with.   Lawyers and bankers and estate administrators are scrambling to keep up with technology. Best practice/due diligence is a moving target.
